Man United are thrashed at Watford as Cristiano Ronaldo’s message to Jadon Sancho backfires.
Manchester United were thrashed 4-1 by Watford after Cristiano Ronaldo’s pre-match advice to Jadon Sancho backfired.
Despite failing to score or assist in his previous 13 appearances, Sancho, 21, was handed a rare start against his former club.
And, before the game, Ronaldo was seen talking to Sancho, giving him advice and, no doubt, attempting to motivate him.
But it didn’t go according to plan, as Watford led 2-0 at halftime thanks to goals from former United striker Josh King and Ismaila Sarr.
Donny van de Beek, a half-time substitute, pulled one back for the visitors, providing a ray of hope for a comeback.
But, after being sent off for a rash challenge on Tom Cleverley, Harry Maguire ensured the points stayed at Vicarage Road.
Maguire will miss United’s big game against Chelsea next weekend due to his double yellow on Saturday.
In extra time, Joao Pedro and Emmanuel Bonaventure scored to give the Red Devils a 1-0 victory.

And the humiliating defeat has sealed Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s fate, with SunSport reporting that he has managed his final United game.
As he teed up Van De Beek for his goal, Ronaldo’s words might have motivated him.
Sancho, on the other hand, has another week of firing blanks ahead of him.
