Jadon Sancho names his role models including ‘iconic’ former Manchester United star

Man United sign Sancho

The news all Manchester United fans were waiting for was finally forthcoming on Friday, July 23rd.

Sancho reveals his role models

Now, Sancho has, of course, already conducted his first interview after officially joining the Red Devils.

In said interview, Sancho was asked who his childhood heroes were.

Sancho would go on to name Brazilian icon Ronaldinho and former Man United star Wayne Rooney as two such players.

Sancho also gave a special mention to another ex-United man, Cristiano Ronaldo:

‘Ronaldinho and obviously Wayne Rooney for England – those two are very iconic and great role models.

‘I feel like everyone’s different and I feel like I’ve got different attributes to all the other players, but obviously Cristiano Ronaldo and what he’s done in his career is a fantastic thing.

‘Where he started at Sporting and then he came to Manchester so it’s always good to see that all these iconic players have come through an iconic club.’
