Ole Gunnar Solskjaer warned he’s about to commit ‘sackable offence’ over Jadon Sancho
Some reports in the media have suggested that Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and his coaching staff are going to try Jadon Sancho out as a wing-back. Ex-Man City defender Danny Mills is not a fan of the idea at all.
“Good luck turning him into a wing-back!” Mills told the Football Insider.
“He didn’t play for England too much in the Euros because I don’t think he was reliable enough to track back and do the defensive side of it. Dortmund never played him there.
“You bought a winger who is going to create chances and score goals. Suddenly you’re going to play him at wing-back in an unbelievably leaky defence. It’s like, really? That’s almost a sackable offence in itself.
“Shall we put Cristiano Ronaldo at centre-half because he can head a ball? I think Ronaldo can head the ball better than the centre-halves at the moment so should they put him at centre-half? It’s more than a little bit ridiculous.”
Sancho is taking his time to adapt to the Premier League. He’s only started three league games for Man United after completing the £73m move from Borussia Dortmund
