One word update on Sancho

The former Ajax boss speaking to the press after their win over Burnley as published by Football Daily had not many words to say about Jadon Sancho.

He was asked about an update on the player and his answer was a straight NO. He was quizzed further about his projected return, and it was another resounding NO.

According to BBC Sports, United signed the former Manchester City player from Germany for £73m after he impressed for the Black and Yellow recording 114 goal contributions in 137 games.

He has however failed to replicate the form and has been totally abysmal for United scoring just eight goals and four assists in 52 games as recorded by Transfermarkt.
