Schmeichel agrees with World Cup snub after Man Utd man is labelled ‘worst buy ever’

After being left out of England's World Cup team, Manchester United icon Peter Schmeichel believes Jadon Sancho has not "done enough."

The Red Devils signed Sancho from Borussia Dortmund for £72 million in 2021, a transaction that took a good year to complete following months of discussions and rumors.

And the deal has been a massive letdown, with Sancho failing to live up to the great expectations of fans and experts so far.

In his final three seasons at Dortmund, the England international scored 37 goals and assisted 41 times, establishing himself as one of the game’s most exciting possibilities.

But things haven’t gone well for Sancho at Manchester United, where he has five goals and four assists in 39 Premier League outings.

Sancho has started ten Premier League games for Erik ten Hag this season, scoring two goals and contributing one assist for his teammates, prompting England manager Gareth Southgate to leave him out of his World Cup roster.

Nobody was surprised by Southgate’s decision, and former Manchester United goalkeeper Schmeichel believes the England manager made the right choice.

“I’m a little disappointed with his quality, and I realize that it’s difficult to come to Old Trafford at that price.” But he’s demonstrated that he can accomplish whatever he did at Borussia Dortmund; he simply hasn’t done it often enough.”

Dion Dublin, Schmeichel’s colleague analyst, believes the Manchester United winger agrees with Southgate’s decision as well.

“I’m sure Sancho is thinking to himself, ‘I haven’t done enough, fair play, Gareth,'” Dublin continued.

Former Manchester United defender Paul Parker believes Sancho would “never be able to adjust” to the Premier League and may go down as the club’s “worst signing ever.”

“If you look at the money Man United paid for him, I would say he could end up being Manchester United’s worst buy ever,” Parker told Bettors. “To be honest, I’ve never understood why Manchester United paid such a high price for Jadon Sancho.

“He has a lot of problems because he never attacks fullbacks, he passes backward, and he doesn’t really challenge his immediate opponent.” The way you play in Germany is very different from how you play in the Premier League, and it appears that he will never be able to adapt well enough to be a major player for Manchester United.”
