“We linked up” – Sancho reveals the spark he has found with Man United teammate Bruno Fernandes

Jadon Sancho reveals the spark he has found with Bruno Fernandes at Manchester United

Speaking to Rio Ferdinand on the latest instalment of ‘Rio Meets’ on BT Sport (h/t Daily Mail), Manchester United’s new signing Jadon Sancho revealed that he shares the same winning mentality as Bruno Fernandes.

The Red Devils finally got their man this summer after agreeing on a £73million fee with Borussia Dortmund. And the 21-year-old winger has finally started training with the club.

Sancho, who represented England at the Euros alongside Man United trio Harry Maguire, Marcus Rashford, and Mason Greenwood, talked about his link-up with Bruno in the training sessions.

“I can see that in a few of the players, with Bruno today we were on the same team and we linked up very well. Me and him love winning so I’m glad me and Bruno have the same mindset because it’s needed in a big team like this if you wanna win things you have to learn how to win in training and in matches so it’s important.”

Sancho aiming high

That is certainly a good thing to hear because United fans have seen how eager Bruno is for success at the club. It shows when he is on the field and it translates in his playing style as well.

If Sancho can replicate that, United would have a fearsome attacking line that can take on any opposition put in front of them. And there’s no shortage of confidence from the former Manchester City man, who thinks he can even reach Lionel Messi’s level one day.

“PSG is a great side, they have great players like Mbappe and Messi. As a young player I’m thinking that means I’ve got to step up my game and show the world – I’m not at that level yet, but I can get to that level. It’s good competition, every young player should thrive in big games like that – if we ever did face them I’d be buzzing, I’d be ready to go.”
