Manchester United

With links to Zinedine Zidane, Jadon Sancho has handed Manchester United a lifeline; the France legend is a “big fan.”

Should Zinedine Zidane succeed Erik ten Hag as manager of Manchester United, Jadon Sancho might be given a chance to save his career.

After United’s humiliating 3-0 loss to Bournemouth at Old Trafford, Erik ten Hag’s pressure mounted.

The Old Trafford team entered the match looking to build on their 2-1 victory over Chelsea on Wednesday, but they were behind a goal in the fifth minute when Dominic Solanke, a former Liverpool striker, scored.

With goals from Marcos Senesi and substitute Philip Billing, the Cherries increased their lead. Dango Ouattara’s late goal could have made matters considerably worse for United if VAR had not disqualified it.

United suffered their sixth Premier League loss of the year and lost more ground on the top four as a result of the setback, despite only managing three efforts on goal.

In addition, Ten Hag’s position is put under even more strain because bookmakers like former Real Madrid manager Zidane to succeed the Dutchman.

Raphael Varane, the out-of-favour centre back, would probably be happy to see Zidane join at Old Trafford as the Frenchman was a great coach for Los Blancos.

Sancho’s career at United might be reignited in the interim. Ten Hag said in September that the England international’s lack of preparation prevented the winger from traveling to a 3-1 loss against Arsenal, which led to the player’s banishment.

Sancho then declared that Ten Hag’s answer was “completely untrue” on X, the platform that was once known as Twitter. He did not back down from his criticism of the United manager, thus he is still suspended.

If Sancho doesn’t apologize to Ten Hag or things at United drastically alter, it’s commonly assumed that he will be leaving Old Trafford in January.

However, if Zidane takes over as United’s manager, it might spark the 23-year-old’s career again.

When Sancho was playing for Borussia Dortmund, the renowned manager was reportedly eager to sign him to Real Madrid, according to Diario Gol.

For the Ballon d’Or’s Kopa Award in 2019, Zidane awarded Sancho five points, which was a greater score than he gave his own young striker, Vinicius Junior.

Zidane was allegedly a huge fan of Sancho at the time and had requested that Real Madrid president Florentino Perez “pay what they ask” for the teenager.
