Manchester United are hoping to sign Jadon Sancho this summer but he has been told he must “grow up” by team-mate Emre Can. The Borussia Dortmund winger has come under fire for his latest comments blasting the DFL.
Sancho was fined by the DFL for posting a photo on social media of himself breaching lockdown guidelines to get a haircut.
The 20-year-old slammed the decision as an “absolute joke” but later deleted his Twitter post.
United are hoping to sign Sancho this summer but they first need Dortmund to lower their £100million price tag.
The England international has an incredible amount of raw pace and composure on the pitch but he needs to be smarter off it, according to Can.
The ex-Liverpool midfielder defended his home nation’s governing body in the dispute with Sancho.
“We know that he just has to be more disciplined in some things, but he knows that himself,” Can told Sky Germany.
“He just has to be smarter and grow up with things like that. He can’t afford to make such mistakes in the future.
“You have to lead Jadon the right way. He’s a great boy, even off the pitch. He doesn’t do it on purpose to cause a scandal.
“Maybe he trusts too many other people in some things.”

Sancho is expected to return to the Premier League this summer, three years after he left Manchester City.
However, former United defender Danny Mills thinks the attacker should ask several questions before agreeing on a move to Old Trafford.
“If I was Jadon Sancho I’d be wanting to ask the questions: ‘Who else are you bringing in?’” Mills told talkSPORT.
“‘What other signings have you got lined up? What is the squad going to look like next season? Are you realistically going to be challenging for things?’
“‘Who is going to be the manage? Is it still going to be Ole Gunnar Solskjaer next season?’
“He’s in a position of strength at the moment. He wants to go and win things, that’s the most important thing.
“He’s going from a fantastic club, he’s gone through his development phase, he’s now going to start hitting the peak development phase and he wants that to be the best years.
“There’s no point going to Manchester United next season if they’re going to finish sixth or seventh.”
