Jadon Sancho has been given a stern "watch and learn" message as his struggles since joining Manchester United in the summer continue.
The England winger completed a highly anticipated move to the Red Devils after months of rumours as he signed from Borussia Dortmund for a fee in the region of £72million.
However, the 21-year-old has struggled for form so far this season and has failed to score or assist in his 11 appearances so far this season.
He has also been limited to just three starts in the club's opening 10 league matches and has yet to complete 90 minutes in the league.
Former Chelsea striker Tony Cascarino has now provided some advice for Sancho and told him to accept his place on the bench at Old Trafford.
Writing in his column for The Times, Cascarino explained: “Football is full of short-term fixes and in his precarious situation Ole was right to go with experience and with players he could put his trust in.
“It was what was needed and will be again when they face Atalanta and Manchester City this week — and again when they play against Chelsea next month.
“And if that is not what supporters of the younger players such as Jadon Sancho, Marcus Rashford and Mason Greenwood want to hear, then I’m afraid they are going to be disappointed.
Will Jadon Sancho find some form at Manchester United this season? Let us know in the comments section below.
“For the moment they are going to have to settle for being a very talented bench and take their chances when they can.”
Cascarino went on to add that if Sancho can use his time out of the starting line-up as a learning curve then it will have a positive outcome going forward.
“Young players, by their nature, are up and down in form and need to learn to be more consistent,” added the former Republic of Ireland international.
“Ronaldo and Cavani are setting the standard and Sancho, a £70 million signing from Borussia Dortmund, needs to watch and learn.
“Some big transfers don’t work or take time to settle. That could be the case with Sancho.”
Manchester City academy graduate Sancho also made a slow start during his final season in Germany before ending the campaign with 16 goals and 20 assists in 38 appearances in all competitions.
He has also already racked up 23 caps for England since making his senior debut aged 18 in October 2018 and will hope he can rediscover some form to keep his place in Gareth Southgate's squad.
