Now that footballer Jadon Sancho has joined a talented attacking unit Manchester United are in contention for “everything”, according to Steve McClaren. Also, Manchester United has sent a message to the rest of the Premier League with their high-profile signing of Jadon Sancho.
Former United assistant and England manager McClaren believes Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side can now deploy a strong attacking combination even if there are still requests for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer to recruit a new center-forward.
During McClaren’s tenure at United, the team won the treble, and he believes they now have the quality to compete in all competitions. “I say it’s a marker for the rest of the league,” McClaren told Stats Perform about the signing of Sancho. “They’ve chased Sancho for a while and he just adds to the attacking line-up that they’ve already got. Yes, okay, they need a striker, everybody says that – but you also need speed on the wings and some creativity.”
“They have got Mason Greenwood, they have got Marcus Rashford and they have got Daniel James. Now they have Sancho, they are going to be in everything. Yes, you need to keep clean sheets, you need to do that. But also, to win tournaments, to win trophies, you need to be good on the ball.”
“You need to be a threat and you need a front four that can terrorize the opponents. Imagine now you have got Rashford, Sancho, Greenwood, you have got Edinson Cavani, Bruno Fernandes – Paul Pogba behind, there is some creativity there, they have got to win soon.”
