The Borussia Dortmund winger has been a regular on the international scene alongside Henderson, who has been impressed with the youngster’s ability.
Sancho’s form in the Bundesliga has made him currently the most talked about footballer on the planet, with speculation he could be moving to the Premier League this summer.
Still only 20, the London-born star is already carrying significant pressure on his young shoulders, and Henderson has offered Sancho a few tips on how he can make the most of his promising potential.
Discussing Sancho with Rio Ferdinand on The Locker Room, Henderson said: “A lot of people are speaking about him. He is a top player, a special player, that in training he has got something different and he’s sharp and able to get past players with ease.
“Also he’s got a good head on his shoulders, he loves football, wants to improve, listen and learn so if he just continues on that path the sky’s the limit for him really.”
Sancho has been hitting the headlines in recent months as continued transfer links with Man Utd gather pace.
He has also been attracting attention for his non-football related conduct too, after slamming the “absolute joke” decision of the German league to fine him for breaching lockdown restrictions to get a haircut.
But Henderson has no concerns over the talented winger.
“He just needs to keep working hard and listening to the people around him and keep doing what he’s doing.
“He’s been brilliant for Dortmund and England, so he just needs to carry on.”
Sancho was one of several bright young English talents Henderson name checked in his interview.
“There’s not only him, you look at Marcus [Rashford] who’s been out with injury, but such a talented player. He does stuff in training where I just think ‘wow’,” Henderson added.
“Look at Raheem [Sterling] now. How he’s blossomed. Obviously I was playing with him at the very start, he’s gone from strength to strength. He’s turned into such a good player.
“And you forget Trent [Alexander-Arnold]’s so young. He’s achieved so much at a young age but he’s mature and has got great people around him to keep his feet on the ground. Works hard, wants to improve and the sky’s the limit for him as well.”
