Sancho ‘head turned’ by Red Devils, Van de Beek made ‘mistake’ with Old Trafford move


Manchester United will find out their Europa League opponents following the disappointment of being knocked out of the Champions League by RB Leipzig last week.

And the Red Devils followed that up with a bore draw at home to Man City, as questions remained about Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s management.

Meanwhile Borussia Dortmund’s interim manager is on the record as saying Jadon Sancho’s form dipped as he was affected by transfer speculation linking him to Man Utd.

Edin Terzic commented in May: “He’s a young player and is one of our most important players.

“I have to say that the transfer speculations are affecting him.

“We have to support him in a positive way. I want all of our players to be happy.”

And Louis van Gaal says Donny van de Beek made a mistake in joining the Red Devils.

He commented: “I hope his time will come, but I don’t think he made a good choice. I said that right away.

“If you have Paul Pogba and Bruno Fernandes, what position should van de Beek be in?

“He doesn’t have the qualities of Pogba and Fernandes. And now you see that Pogba often doesn’t start. Where should van de Beek play then?

“I think you could have seen that beforehand. There are so many teams, which could have done better justice to him, also in the top division. He is a boy with many qualities.”
