You don’t deserve to be in England squad – Agbonlahor tells Man United star
Legendary Aston Villa player Gabby Agbonlahor argues that Jadon Sancho of Manchester United does not currently merit a spot in the England team.
Sancho was left off of England manager Gareth Southgate's team that fell to Italy 1-0 in the Nations League on Friday.
With three goals so far this season, the former Borussia Dortmund star has gotten off to a strong start under Erik ten Hag, emerging as a key player for the Red Devils.
Despite this, former England international Agbonlahor asserted that the 22-year-old has not yet proven himself worthy of regaining his spot.
He told Football Insider, “I don’t think he deserves to be in it yet." Yes, his form has improved, but he’s still got a lot to do for me. I probably would have picked him before Bowen because I feel in the last month he’s done more than Bowen has.
But Sancho has to start taking players on more like he has done. That’s how he will get back into the squad.
“If Man United carry on playing the way they are, then Sancho will 100 percent be back in that squad.”
