Jayden Sancho (23), who was called the ‘100 billion boy’, finally ended his wandering.
Sancho replaced Nottingham Forest in the semi-finals of the 2022-2023 English Football League Cup (EFL Cup) held at Old Trafford in Manchester, England on the 2nd (Korean time). Manchester United won 2-0. They advance to the final and compete against Newcastle United for the championship.
Sancho is a top-notch prospect that Manchester United bought from Dortmund for 85 million euros (approximately 110 billion won). At the time, he was only 21 years old.
Sancho disappeared from the first team after the match against Chelsea on October 23 last year. It wasn’t an injury. He seemed to have a psychological problem. He eventually dropped out of training.
Manchester United manager Eric Tenhach only answered heavily, saying, “I don’t know” when Sancho will return.

Sancho was substituted for Anthony in the 18th minute of the second half when the score was 0-0. Sancho showed off quite aggressive and ambitious movements and was active. He also made a lateral pass that became the starting point for an additional goal in the 31st minute of the second half when the score was 1-0.
After the game, coach Tenhach expressed satisfaction.
“It’s the way we’ve done it before. Sending Sancho to the center and giving Bruno Fernandez more freedom. Creative plays can come from many places. That’s what we intended,” said Tenhach. It was evaluated that he played the role well in the middle.
“Sancho can play as number 10. He can also play as a winger,” Tenhag said. We train and work hard,” he said.
Sancho was not selected for the England squad for the 2022 World Cup in Qatar. He conducted his personal training in December. It wasn’t until January that he returned to the first team.
When Sancho stepped on the ground after a long time, the Manchester United fans who filled Old Trafford chanted “Sancho! Sancho!” Mirror expected that ‘Sancho received a brilliant reception from Manchester United fans who wanted him to realize his potential’.
