Europa League: He’s not a winger – Scholes tells Ten Hag to change Man Utd star’s role
Manchester United legend, Paul Scholes has said Jadon Sancho is at his best when he plays centrally and links up with Christian Eriksen and Bruno Fernandes.
Sancho opened the scoring for United as they beat FC Sheriff 2-0 in the Europa League on Thursday.
The 22-year-old has been in fine form in recent weeks, with three goals in his last six appearances.
Scholes believes Ten Hag should continue to allow Sancho to drift inside instead of playing as a traditional winger.
“He’s better when he’s coming inside the pitch, when he’s linking with players.
“He doesn’t have that electrifying pace to go past someone down the outside or on the inside.
“When he was good at Dortmund, he had [Erling] Haaland to link with, [Achraf] Hakimi, he always had someone to link with.
“If he can do that with Manchester United, if he can find Fernandes and Eriksen, really clever players to link with, he could be a good player for United,” Scholes said on BT Sport.
