Liverpool legend, John Barnes, has suggested that Cristiano Ronaldo’s second stint with Manchester United affected Jadon Sancho’s progress at Old Trafford.
Sancho joined Man United from Bundesliga side Borussia Dortmund for €85 million in 2021.
The England international moved to the Red Devils following an impressive four-year spell in Germany, where he scored 50 goals and registered 64 assists from 137 appearances across competitions for Dortmund.
However, Sancho has struggled to live up to his price tag and hype at Manchester United so far, as he has scored just 12 goals and provided six assists in 79 games across competitions for the Premier League club.
“Now, with [Man] United looking to improve, they will be looking to add to their squad in the attacking areas, which could push [Jadon] Sancho further down the pecking order in the squad,” Barnes told Bonus Code Bets.
“I feel sorry for him because he is a good player and Ronaldo took over the club, which stopped players like Sancho from showing what they can do.”
