Sancho discusses his biggest footballing strength

Tuesday 08 March 2022 15:00

Manchester United winger Jadon Sancho was recently asked about what he thinks is the biggest strength in his game.

Jadon has been in fine form of late and is currently enjoying the best spell of his United career, following his move to the club last summer. 

The 21-year-old’s recent performances saw him confirmed as our Player of the Month for February, before he scored in the Manchester derby on Sunday, against a side he spent time with during his youth career. 

Sancho has been the subject of acclaim from Reds past and present over the last few weeks, while he’s also spoken himself about how he’s learning a lot from working with his more experienced United team-mates.

Revealed: United's Player of the Month


Fewer than 600 votes separated first and second place in our closest monthly poll for years.

In that same interview with club media, our no.25 was asked about what he feels the strongest part of his game is.

We saw the pinpoint accuracy that he can display when finishing against Manchester City on Sunday, but it is a more selfless trait that Sancho believes he can offer the most to the team with.
“I feel my best strength is probably drawing one or two players towards me to then free up space for my team-mates and then to release the ball,” Jadon explained. 

“Committing my players is my strong point and obviously one-v-ones is another aspect.”

Jadon's two goals and two assists weren't his only moments that caught the eye last month, as you can see here...

That quality to draw the attention of defenders with the ball at his feet is one that you can see throughout Jadon’s highlight reel from last month above, and one that has been synonymous with his game throughout his young career.

Speaking in another recent interview, this time with Premier League Productions, Sancho says he believes that he has been able to impact matches in this way, and others, more frequently in the last few weeks having been able to adapt to his new surroundings at United, and the Premier League, following an understandable initial period of transition during the early part of his first campaign at the club. 

“I’m very hard on myself, so I wouldn’t say it’s been the best season,” our no.25 admitted. 

“I feel like I’ve learnt a lot. You know, new league, obviously playing with new team-mates.

“I’m feeling more comfortable and feeling like myself. I’m happy.”
