Southgate 'not surprised' by Sancho's struggles at Man Utd

 The Three Lions manager has called up the winger to his latest squad despite admitting he hasn't reached his best level yet at Old Trafford

Gareth Southgate says he's "not surprised' by Jadon Sancho's struggles at Manchester United, with the England boss labelling the Premier League as a more "intense" competition than the Bundesliga.

Sancho completed a long-waited £73 million ($99m) move to United from Borussia Dortmund in the summer window, bringing to an end his three-year stay in Germany.

The 21-year-old emerged as one of the most exciting wingers in Europe at Westfalenstadion, but has been unable to hit the ground running at Old Trafford, and Southgate says he will need more time to adjust to the demands of top-flight English football.
