Rio Ferdinand is confident it is ‘a matter of time’ before Jadon Sancho shows the form that persuaded Manchester United to pay £73million for him.

Sancho has lost his place in the United side and was dropped last week by England manager Gareth Southgate.

Ferdinand, however, said it is only natural the winger should need to acclimatise to his new club and pointed to the examples of Patrice Evra and Nemanja Vidic, his two former United club-mates who needed time to impress at Old Trafford.

The former United defender also insisted Sancho cannot allow the arrival of Cristiano Ronaldo to overwhelm his talent.

‘He can only look at that as a plus point,’ Ferdinand told Sportsmail. ‘He can’t look at someone like Ronaldo being in your dressing room, being able to work alongside him [as a negative].

‘He is, I reckon, the most decisive footballer we’ve ever seen. His natural habits around the training ground, copy his preparation. You have to be a sponge like that.

‘For Jadon, Marcus [Rashford] and Mason [Greenwood], those three attacking players, they should be especially soaking this up. Even these first 11 goals [from Ronaldo] which they’ve seen, that would be enough [to teach them].
