Ole Gunnar Solskjaer believes Jadon Sancho has what it takes to be ‘a top forward’ for Manchester United despite enduring a relatively slow start to life at Old Trafford.

United signed the former Borussia Dortmund winger on a five-year contract worth £73million this summer. However, he has done little to warrant his price tag.

Nevertheless, Solskjaer believes Sancho will become a star in ’15 years’ as he is currently ‘learning how to play in the Premier League’ and ‘improving’ all the time. 

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer believes Jadon Sancho has what it takes to be ‘a top forward’ at United

Speaking ahead of the Red Devils’ Premier League showdown away at West Ham United on Sunday, Solskjaer said: ‘He’s learning all the time.


‘As I said in training as well, he’s learning our methods, he’s learning the Premier League and of course, he knows the Champions League already from being at Dortmund.

United signed the former Borussia Dortmund winger on a five-year contract worth £73million this summer. However, he has done little to warrant his price tag this season 

Nevertheless, Solskjaer believes Sancho will become a star in ’15 years’ as he is ‘improving’

‘He’s a young boy, he’s only 21 and he’ll improve. We signed him as we see a top forward for 10, 12, 15 years and I’ve not changed my mind on that.

‘He’s so clean on the ball and is enthusiastic to learn and that is such a big thing when you come to Man Utd. 

‘You’re always going to get a chance and you play with some of the best players in the world, you’re getting some fantastic coaching with the coaches I’ve got too.’

Having excelled at Borussia Dortmund, Sancho established himself as one of the most highly sought-after youngsters this summer.   

However, he has failed to live up to expectations since arriving at Manchester United. Nevertheless, Sancho claims he will continue to ‘play his game’ and insists the goals will come. 

The United manager also says Sancho is currently ‘learning how to play in the Premier League’

The England international says he is excited about linking back up with Marcus Rashford 

He said: ‘I’m going to keep playing my game,’ he said earlier this month. ‘I’m not going to change what I’ve been doing over in Germany. I’ve just got to bring it here and hopefully, I can show the fans what I can deliver.’

The 21-year-old also expressed his delight at linking up with his England team-mates Marcus Rashford and Mason Greenwood. 

He added: ‘That’s going to be a crazy link up when Marcus gets back [from injury].

‘Obviously I’ve seen a bit of Mason – he’s crazy. We’re still getting to know each other, obviously movements and things like that, getting our understanding, but it’s going to be crazy all three of us on the pitch.’
