Out-of-favor Manchester United winger, Jadon Sancho, in a recent social media post, flaunted his trendy and bold new haircut. Despite its appeal, the new style faced criticism from United supporters who likened it to Paul Pogba‘s habit of frequently changing hairstyles.

The English winger recently shared a video showcasing his latest hairstyle online, sparking a frenzy among internet users. The 23-year-old winger revealed his new look amid talks of a potential return to the Bundesliga. Since his £73 million transfer from Dortmund to the Premier League, Sancho has struggled to find his form and has faced criticism for both his behavior on and off the field. With only three appearances this season, he faced exclusion from team training due to disciplinary concerns, as confirmed by club manager Erik ten Hag.

Manchester United fans criticized Jadon Sancho’s new look, labeling it as the ‘Pogba effect.’ This refers to the scrutiny that former Manchester United midfielder Paul Pogba faced for his frequent changes in hairstyles, haircuts, and colors, drawing attention from both fans and football analysts. Pogba’s continuous alterations in his appearance often led experts to suggest that he should have focused more on enhancing his game rather than his looks. Jadon Sancho also received a similar kind of criticism.

Amid Manchester United’s disappointing season, fans may anticipate Jadon Sancho’s swift return to the team or a permanent departure. The team’s current poor performance has placed them 8th on the Premier League table, securing only 31 points from 20 EPL matches, trailing nine points behind the UCL qualification spots.
