I feel like I did well in those big games and now I’m ready for a new challenge and a bigger step.”
“Obviously it’s helped me mature as a player and a person, so I could say I took that on really well, and my former team-mates helped me a lot with settling in over in Germany and helped me stay focused.”
Sancho could make his debut for the Red Devils in their season opener against Leeds United on August 14th.
“Yes, definitely, I’m excited for the new season, especially as the first game (Leeds) is at home. That’s always a confidence booster – to be in front of your own fans – so it will be nice.”
Sancho’s five-year deal has an option of a further 12 months.
