Man Utd new-boy Jadon Sancho hailed "absolute legend" for what he did for fans

Jadon Sancho has already been hailed as a 'legend' after the full-time whistle blew in the clash between Manchester United and Leeds United on Saturday.

Sancho made his Premier League debut, with a 15-minute cameo, during the fixture as a second-half substitute.

The Red Devils couldn't put a foot wrong as they ran riot, putting five past Marcelo Bielsa's men in an emphatic performance.

But, Sancho was hailed as a 'legend' for his actions after the full-time whistle.

Sancho stayed behind for over half an hour to sign United shirts and take photos with fans on their return to Old Trafford.

"Jadon Sancho spent 25-30 mins taking pictures and signing people’s shirts after the game, the only player to do so, what an absolute legend," one fan tweeted after the game.

Before adding: "Yeh [Luke] Shaw and Ole [Gunnar Solskjaer] took a few pics but they didn’t stay for very long."

"It’s nice to see that players appreciate the most important people in football, the fans," one fan tweeted in reply.

"He was doing that in Dortmund as well. Was the player taking the most time for fans," another added.

Do you think Sancho will start at the weekend? Let us know in the comments section

Sancho finally ended the two-year-long transfer saga when he joined United earlier on in the summer from Borussia Dortmund.

He also featured in a behind-closed-doors friendly against Burnley on Tuesday.

Solskjaer's side beat Burnley 3-1 as they continue to build up their fitness levels as the new season gets underway.

And due to his involvement in the clash, Sancho is hotly tipped to be handed a starting spot when United travel to the South Coast to face Southampton at the weekend.
