Man United boss Erik Ten Hag gives Blunt response why Jadon Sancho is not in training
Manchester United manager Erik Ten Hag has given a direct comment when asked about Jadon Sancho’s development following the Red Devils’ 2-0 Carabao Cup victory over Burnley on Wednesday.
Sancho was not present for the victory, which was completed by goals from Christian Eriksen and Marcus Rashford.
Marcus Rashford celebrates a goal for Manchester United, and Gary Lineker is perplexed by England.
Since before the World Cup break, the former Borussia Dortmund player has been working out separately from the team. When asked by Sky Sports for an update on Sancho, Ten Hag simply responded:
“No.” When pressed again, the Dutchman repeated his one-word answer.
After being left out of Gareth Southgate’s England squad, Sancho stopped using his social media accounts and started working out alone in the Netherlands with a trainer that Ten Hag suggested. Sancho hasn’t trained with the rest of the team since October 31.
Erik Ten Hag stated earlier this month that he did not know when Sancho would be able to rejoin the team.
“We want to bring him back as quickly as possible, but I can’t give a prognosis of when that will be,” Ten Hag said.
“Sometimes there are circumstances with fitness and mood. We got a drop of quality level and sometimes you don’t know why or what is causing it.
“That is what we are doing now to try to get him back there. It is a combination of physically and mentally.”
