Man Utd vs Everton: Solskjaer clashes with Southgate over Jadon Sancho’s form


Manchester United manager, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, has hit back at Gareth Southgate for saying Jadon Sancho does not deserve his international call-up.

Solskjaer suggested the England manager did not watch the 21-year-old’s performance against Villarreal.

Southgate has called up Sancho in his squad for World Cup qualifiers against Andorra and Hungary but said he was fortunate to be included after struggling for form since his move from Borussia Dortmund to United in the summer.

Solskjaer, however, disagrees, particularly after Sancho’s role in the 2-1 win over Villarreal on Wednesday.

“Was that interview [with Southgate] done before Wednesday night?

“Jadon was exceptional, he was electric, the crowd loved him.

“I think he felt that connection with the crowd, and that is what we want from him, to be direct, positive, go past players numerous times.

“Yeah he’s not scored yet but that night I thought, ‘Yeah that’s Jadon’ and we’re going to see loads of that.

“And Gareth has also said it’s important Jadon knows they believe in him. They have invested time in him. He will be a top player. Performances are going to come.

“He’ll come good, we’ve got absolutely no worries. If he goes there I’m sure he will play well,” Solskjaer said.
