Man Utd fans include Sancho in old Solskjaer chant as signing replaces Sanchez

Manchester United supporters have reworked an old chant to include Jadon Sancho following his move from Borussia Dortmund – dropping a former flop in the process.

England forward Sancho has joined on a £73m move following months of speculation, and could be joined by Raphael Varane as the Red Devils look to force a Premier League title challenge.

In a tribute to the new signing, and a fresh start following a 2020 departure, a famous chant has been altered by fans ahead of the opening fixture of the season.

To the tune of Waterfall, by The Stone Roses, Sancho's name has been used to replace that of Alexis Sanchez, with Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, Paul Pogba, Fred and Marcus Rashford still included.

It goes: “Ole’s at the wheel, tell me how good does it feel. We’ve got Sancho, Paul Pogba and Fred. Marcus Rashford is Manc born and bred!”

The former rendition being: "Ole's at the wheel, tell me how good does it feel, we've got Sanchez, Paul Pogba and Fred, Marcus Rashford is Manc born and bred."

United posted the new chant on their official website, and went on to share their chat with Sancho in which he was asked about support from his new fans.

“It feels very nice,” Jadon explained earlier this week.

“To have the fans by my side is always a great feeling, especially when you come to a new club, because you need to feel comfortable straight away, and I’m sure the fans will give me that feeling.”

Adding: “I’m excited for the new season, especially as the first game is at home. That’s always a confidence booster – to be in front of your own fans – so it will be nice.”

On Saturday, a young United side were beaten 4-2 by QPR in London.

Solskjaer said: "You're never happy when you concede goals but [it was] a good exercise again, good learning for some of the young ones.

“It's a check where we are, and a test where we are for the older and more experienced ones as well.

“Towards the end, I enjoyed the football the kids played. They conceded a few goals and could have crumbled but they got hold of the ball and scored a very good goal.”
