JADON SANCHO has been branded “slow” and too much “like a Manchester City player” to win his fight with United boss Erik ten Hag.
It’s thought club chiefs are unsure if Sancho should play for United again.
Sancho fired back at the “completely untrue” explanation and argued he had been “a scapegoat for a long time” – although on Tuesday he deleted that statement from his social media.
Now Parker has given his incredible verdict on the saga.
The former Three Lions star reckons Sancho blew his big opportunity when he returned to action last season following a lay-off for physical and psychological issues.
Parker told MyBettingSites.co.uk: “He had a very good chance of proving himself when he came back from his extended holiday but he did that.
“He didn’t grab that chance and we never saw a change in him.
“Now he is trying to do a public fight with the manager and he is never going to win that fight regardless if he is right or not.
“He might be right but the manager, the players and the fans have lost all respect for him.
“It’s all about how Erik ten Hag sees things now. It’s up to him whether he should be given another chance but personally I think his time is up at Man United.”
Parker was equally scathing in his assessment of the former Borussia Dortmund attacker on the pitch.
The ex-Fulham and QPR man said: “From his first day at Man United, I could see that he was never going to be the wide player the fans expected.”
“Fans expected him to be dynamic and full of energy. But he is slow and he plays like a Man City player, which is not what Man United are looking for.
“I don’t think there is a way back for him now.”
Parker added: “He has never looked himself in the mirror and given himself the blame. He should realise that it’s his own fault but he doesn’t have this drive about him.
“I don’t think he has that bit about him that it takes to rejuvenate his career at Man United.”
