Liverpool boss Klopp offers Man Utd fans advice on Sancho

Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp has offered Manchester United fans advice on Jadon Sancho.

The 21-year-old has started just three Premier League matches since joining United from Klopp's former club Borussia Dortmund in the summer, and is yet to register a goal or assist in his 11 appearances for his new club.

Jadon Sancho is a world class talent, definitely," Klopp told reporters. “He has all the things you need to become really one of the best players in the world in the future.

“That's how it is but he's still very young. At Dortmund they were obviously full of praise about him. Rightly so.

"I saw a lot of games where he played outstandingly well.

“It's a normal situation where you are especially, I'm not but you are, you lose patience a little bit quickly.

“Don't forget the options United have in his position. Mason Greenwood. Wow! What a talent he is.

“Jadon for sure can play in other positions and Mason can play in the centre but there's not space anymore 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, just hopefully not on Sunday!"
