Having not taken part in the pre-season, Manchester United’s game against Leeds tomorrow may be a little early for him to make his first start. However, speaking with Rio Ferdinand for BT Sport ahead of the Premier League opener, Sancho has revealed how happy he feels to finally be a United player, having been linked with the club for so long.
It feels nice, definitely [to be a United player], I’ve been waiting a long time for this move I’m just glad it’s over now and I can get ready to start the season against Leeds. I’m buzzing.
Ferdinand asked Sancho what he believed he was going to bring to the team in the campaign ahead.
Goals, assists, a bit of flair and definitely eager to win – that’s one of my things I’ve always done. Trying to help the team, winning is my mentality. Hopefully I can win a few games for Man United if it’s a close game. I’m looking forward to it.
Sancho has taken part in training sessions with his new teammates and has already begun to develop partnerships with some of the players
I can see that in a few of the players, with Bruno today we were on the same team and we linked up very well. Me and him love winning so I’m glad me and Bruno have the same mindset because it’s needed in a big team like this if you wanna win things you have to learn how to win in training and in matches so it’s important.
The whole team is a great squad. Speaking to Luke and Marcus, they were telling me its a great bunch of lads. I watched a few games last season and the attack is very good, to be a part of that now is kind of crazy because I see what Bruno was doing, what Marcus was doing, Greenwood, Cavani… so to add more goals and assists is going to be exciting.
