Jadon Sancho blasted for reaction after ignoring Cristiano Ronaldo
Former Newcastle United star, Darren Ambrose has criticized Man United forward Jadon Sancho over his reaction after he was seen ignoring Cristiano Ronaldo in United 1-0 home loss to Wolves on Monday.
Jadon Sancho joined the Red Devils from Dortmund for a reported fee of £73m in July 2021 following months of speculations.
The 21-year-old is yet to stake a claim in Ralf Rangnick starting eleven.
Ambrose stated that Sancho needed to start to assert himself and produce “a little bit more” for the club after his big move from Borussia Dortmund last summer.
Sancho came under scrutiny for his performance in the last game and, in particular, his reaction after his shot was blocked in the seventh minute after ignoring Ronaldo and this caught the attention of Ambrose, who demanded that the English international do so more frequently.
“Sancho just looks out of sorts and I’ve backed him many, many times to come good,” Ambrose told talk SPORT
“£73million, the pressure got taken off him a bit when they brought in Cristiano Ronaldo, but he needs to produce a bit more.
“There was a moment where they went through and they went two-vs-one basically, and he ignored Ronaldo.
“Absolutely fine; get your shot off, it got blocked. It was after that, it was like the reaction after that.”
