Jadon Sancho finally opened his account with Manchester United on Tuesday night, and after the win at Villarreal in the Champions League, he has urged his teammates to continue to improve.

The 21-year-old had not registered a goal or assist since his summer move from Borussia Dortmund, but ended that drough in the last minute of the game in Spain.

His fine strike completed a 2-0 win for the Red Devils, which guaranteed the club a spot in the Champions League knockout stages and quelled the ongoing turbulence somewhat.

United lost their previous game 4-1 to Watford, leading to Ole Gunanr Solskjaer being sacked and throwing the club into serious uncertainty.

While Sancho and his teammates can do little about the ongoing search for a new manager, he has urged the players to take the performance at Villarreal and build on it.

The England star tweeted: ‘Proud to score my first goal for @ManUtd in the best competition in world football @ChampionsLeague!

‘Great team effort from the boys tonight, we build from this.’

Caretaker manager Michael Carrick was thoroughly impressed with Sancho’s performance and expects that the winger himself will build on it as he searches for his best form.

‘He’ll feel better after playing how he played,’ said Carrick. ‘The goal is the obvious one and for Jadon himself, it will give him a massive boost.

‘I thought his performance overall, I know how much he likes the ball at his feet, that’s where he’s happiest, but the most pleasing for me was the effort and application he put in off the ball. At times he didn’t see a lot of the ball but he was doing a job and he played a big part in the team performance.

‘You earn your rewards, he epitomised the team performance to dig in but also to enjoy the ball at other times. It’s up to him what happens next and how he kicks on, he’s got all the talent in the world and he’ll have our support that’s for sure.’
