Man Utd ace Shaw insists Sancho not struggling - 'He can go right to the top'

Luke Shaw has insisted Jadon Sancho isn't struggling at Manchester United.

Shaw says his teammate, who joined from Borussia Dortmund in the summer, has the potential to go "right to the very top".

"Sometimes, for people, it takes time," the United full-back, who is currently away on England duty with Sancho, told talkSPORT. "I wouldn't say struggle because I don't think he's struggling at the moment. He's working extremely hard behind closed doors.

"He's training really well and looking really sharp. He just hasn't had that bit of luck that sometimes you need for your first goal or first assist. But I've got no doubt in my mind, it's coming.

"The talent he has is unbelievable, he can go right to the very top. It's just about him staying focused, keep doing what he's doing in training and working hard. His time will come."
