The Champions League could be the ideal stage for Jadon Sancho to have his best game yet as a Manchester United player.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer was seen working with Sancho and paying him particular attention in the training session ahead of the game with Young Boys.
Solskjaer was pictured speaking to Sancho and having a kick-about with the winger as they chatted in the training session last night.
The Manchester United manager is regarded as an excellent man-manager and he will be looking to bring Sancho out of his shell.
A lot of pressure
Sancho’s confidence will have been dented by the European Championships with England.
He was overlooked as a starting player, apart from one match, before being brought on to take a penalty in the final which he missed.
Solskjaer will be working with him to encourage him and help him settle as a United player.
Sancho arrived for a big fee, and has had a tricky start, having missed his first week of training in early August and then suffering another minor injury with England.
Grabbing his first goal or assist will help him settle and it could come tonight against Young Boys.
A strong performance will lift his confidence and help him feel like he belongs, and Solskjaer is clearly working hard to help him reach his top form.
