Man Utd legend Jaap Stam slams Jadon Sancho and Antony before urging Erik ten Hag to complete Cody Gakpo transfer

Ex-MANCHESTER UNITED ace Jaap Stam has slammed Jadon Sancho and Antony for a lack of consistency – but isn’t sure Cody Gakpo is the answer.

Sancho joined from Borussia Dortmund in 2021, while the Brazil international joined for £85.5million from Ajax 12 months later.

However, the former failed to live up to expectations, scoring just five goals in 39 Prem games, causing him to lose his place in the England squad.

Antony got off to a brilliant start, netting in his first three league games but has not netted since and has recently been criticized for showboating.

And Jaap targeted the pair for not reaching the required level.

He told Football Betting: “Man United need a winger who can deliver a certain quality of football because Jadon Sancho isn’t delivering yet.

“Marcus Rashford is doing very well, Antony came in and scored a couple of goals but I think he needs to step up because he’s not up to the standard I know he can.

“To be consistent Man United need strikers who can perform in almost every game and that’s why you have to have options because if someone isn’t playing you can get someone who can.”

One winger who has been heavily linked with a move to Old Trafford is Gakpo and his stock is unlikely to grow until after his World Cup exploits.

But Stam is unsure his compatriot is United’s solution.

He added: “Everyone is talking about Cody Gakpo, people will assume Man United will go for him but I don’t know if that’s the case.

“Gakpo would be a player who would fit into the Man United squad.

“There would be questions as to whether he can deliver straight away because he’s from Holland and we’ve seen people struggle in the past.

“The question then is whether Man United need to opt for a more experienced winger who may have played at a certain level in order for them to make an immediate impact.”
