The United winger reveals how his second pre-season at the club is helping to boost his confidence ahead of the new season.

Jadon Sancho is loving life under Erik ten Hag.

The Englishman has had a fine pre-season so far, scoring two goals for Ten Hag’s side – both coming against Premier League opposition in the form of Crystal Palace and bitter rivals Liverpool.

The former Borussia Dortmund player has impressed fans of the Red Devils during the tour and looks to be in great form as the start of the new Premier League season approaches.

The Reds have won all three of their pre-season matches so far, scoring a staggering 11 goals and only conceding two.

Sancho has been at the heart of an inspired United attack and although it is ‘only’ pre-season – the 22-year-old’s form will already be giving opposition players and managers some serious headaches.

The winger has been speaking on tour about how much he is enjoying his pre-season so far and the impact that the new manager is having on this United side.

Speaking to the club’s in-house media, he said:

“It’s my second year now, settling into the team, knowing how players play and I’m excited for the upcoming season, with a new manager and how he wants us to play, and I think it will be good for myself.

“The training, especially in pre-season, has been a real positive and all the lads have taken on board what he’s saying; you can see it in the games, we’re creating a lot more chances, keeping the ball more and just making good things out of the style we’re playing.”

The in-form winger was asked about how having a good pre-season can have a positive impact heading into the new Premier League season.

He added: “Well, this is my first pre-season with United because, last year, I had an infection in my ear so I couldn’t do the whole pre-season with the team which was a bit annoying at the time and [meant] a lack of fitness and understanding of how the players play.

“But now, this season, I feel a lot more comfortable and, especially scoring in pre-season, it is a confidence boost for myself and, hopefully, I can take that into the season and keep it going.”
