Jadon Sancho responds to Erik ten Hag’s ‘untrue’ allegations after being benched by Manchester United manager.
Jadon Sancho has retaliated against Erik ten Hag after the Manchester United coach provided a nasty explanation for benching the winger for Sunday’s loss to Arsenal.
Additionally, Erik had to answer about Sancho, who was no part of his matchday team in favor of young players Dan Gore and Hannibal Mejbri.
Sancho, though, had been kept out due to problems with training, according to Erik ten Hag.
Ten Hag remarked that Jadon “was [absent] on his performance on the training.”
“We didn’t pick him. At Manchester United, you have to perform at a certain level every day, and we have options on the front lines. He wasn’t part for this particular game.”
Sancho’s latest setback comes after he was not part of United’s first-team roster. However, after Ten Hag arrived at Old Trafford last season, Sancho was forced to practice independently with instructors in the Netherlands for a number of months.
Ten Hag stated earlier this summer that he had noticed Sancho’s development and thought the England international had turned the corner.

Ten Hag declared in July that “he has the skills.” “He must continuously demonstrate his ability to contribute greatly. The final product is crucial when you are a front player. Therefore, be sure to complete the necessary tasks, make the decisive pass, and achieve your objectives.”
“The rest [pressing and attitude] have to be good as well. You have that as your base, and you also meet all the other requirements that we have. He is in a great mood right now. He makes the decisions regarding his state of being, his attitude, and his vibe.”
“We’ve all noticed his high level of enthusiasm ever since he returned. Both success and enjoyment in football are important to him.”
However, Sancho afterwards made a public post on social media alleging that Ten Hag’s remarks were “false.”
“Please remember not to believe everything you read! I won’t stand for people expressing things that are wholly false. This week, I have behaved myself quite well in training,” he remarked.
“I think there are further factors at play in this situation, but I won’t go into them. It’s unfair that I’ve served as the scapegoat for so long.”
“All I want to do is cheer when I play football and help my team. I respect every choice the coaching staff makes. I’m grateful to play with such great guys, even though I know it might be difficult every week.”
“No matter what, I’ll keep fighting for this badge.”
