Jadon Sancho has been told that Liverpool would be a better fit for him rather than Manchester United.
The Reds were linked with Sancho over the summer and last year while he was at Borussia Dortmund, where he was one of the most prized assets in European football.
Sancho eventually left Dortmund in the summer to sign for Man United in a £75m deal, but things haven’t gone to plan as of yet.
Since moving to Old Trafford, Sancho has made 13 appearances and is yet to score his first goal.
Former Middlesbrough boss Jonathan Woodgate, who has previously worked for Liverpool, has explained why the Reds’ style would be better suited to Sancho.
Woodgate worked as a scout at Liverpool after a call from Michael Edwards in 2016, and has given his views on why things haven’t gone to plan for Sancho since joining Man United.
“Things haven't gone exactly according to plan for Sancho since he signed for Man United this summer, and I put it down to the style of play; it doesn't suit him,” said Woodgate, speaking to Ladbrokes at its launch of the 5-A-Side Bet on Tottenham v Leeds.
He added: “If United replicated Dortmund's approach then it would be a different ball game altogether, but Man United don't play that way; they don't play the sort of football Sancho is used to.
“Jadon Sancho is an extraordinary talent; if you play to his strengths, then he'll come good. There's no doubt in my mind that he'll come good again.
“Put him in the Liverpool team, and he'd be a completely different player, I'm sure.”
