‘They Call Me 007’: Sky Germany teases Jadon Sancho’s steamy start at Man United with a James Bond-themed graphic … with the former Dortmund star yet to score or assist in SEVEN games since the £ move 73m
- Jadon Sancho completed a £ 73 million move to Manchester United in the summer
- But the former Borussia Dortmund striker has yet to score or attend his new club
- He has played in seven Premier League games with Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s men
- And Sky Germany has mocked his poor performance so far this season.
Sky Germany has poked fun at Jadon Sancho’s difficult start to life at Manchester United by playing to his stats from this season in a James Bond-themed chart.
The 21-year-old joined the Old Trafford club in a £ 73 million move from Borussia Dortmund in the summer, after the two clubs failed to agree on a fee in the summer of 2020.
But the English international has struggled to make an impact in the Premier League, and the forward has yet to record a goal or assist in his seven top flight appearances this season or in all four games in other competitions.

And Sky in Germany has used those figures of zero goals and zero assists in seven games to poke fun at him, with the graphic containing the words ‘call me 007’, the code number that belongs to James Bond, the fictional agent of the Service. British secret.
Sancho then dresses in a tuxedo in the graphic, which is a common theme in all Bond movies.
The English international was an unused substitute in United’s 5-0 win over Liverpool at the weekend, a match that intensified scrutiny on under pressure manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.
But before the game, Sancho, who scored 50 goals in 137 appearances over a three-year span for Dortmund’s senior team, was supported by Reds manager Jurgen Klopp.

The German coach insisted that “world-class talent” would come in handy at Old Trafford and could form a deadly partnership with Mason Greenwood.
“Jadon Sancho is a world-class talent, definitely,” Klopp said. It has everything you need to become one of the best players in the world in the future.
“He is, but he’s still very young.” In Dortmund they were obviously full of praise for him. Justly.
“I watched a lot of games where he played extraordinarily well. It is a normal situation in which you are especially, I am not but you are, you lose patience a bit quickly.
Don’t forget the options United has in your position. Mason Greenwood. Wow! What a talent it is.

Jadon sure can play other positions and Mason can play center, but there is no more space, so they share the wing if you want.
‘That’s a problem you want to have as a manager, actually, to be honest. But everything will be fine for Jadon. ‘
Kris Boyd criticized Sancho for ‘absolutely doing nothing’ since his arrival, but Danny Murphy insisted that the signing of Cristiano Ronaldo and his late arrival after his limited participation in Euro 2020 helped him.
But the former midfielder urged Sancho to use his United and England teammate Marcus Rashford as a “role model” to deal with the pressures of playing for United.
“Sancho was not helped by the arrival of Ronaldo, because it restricted his opportunities in his privileged position, and Greenwood also had to play wide.
Klopp thinks Sancho and Mason Greenwood could form an exciting partnership early on.

“I don’t think coming to United late after the Euro has helped. The preseason at a new club is key and would have appeared the moment I signed. If that means there is no vacation, then there is no vacation.
Sancho did not play every minute of Euro 2020, so it was surprising that he started training later than other England players and was therefore not ready to start the first Premier League match.
“ It feels like he’s been trying to catch up ever since. In his defense, he is young and when you go to a club like United you need help and guidance.
“He has a good role model at Rashford on how to deal with things. Rashford had been out for a while due to his shoulder injury, but his performances in the past week were full of intensity and intention.
‘I was saying to the coach:’ If I’m in shape, you have to play with me. Sancho may have a different personality, but somehow he has to incorporate a little more of that “I’ll show you” into his game and begin to assert himself.
