Erik ten Hag and Jadon Sancho were both upset by the winger’s “sluggishness” after he disobeyed an early schedule meant to help him with his time-keeping troubles.

In order to solve Jadon Sancho’s tardiness difficulties, Manchester United devised a plan that required him to arrive one hour earlier than teammates.

After United manager Erik ten Hag said that Sancho’s absence from the team for the game against Arsenal was due to his performance in training, Sancho lashed out at the Dutchman last week. The Athletic, however, has discovered that United had grown impatient with Sancho because of his tardiness, which prompted them to create a schedule that was one hour earlier than everyone else’s. The plan initially worked, but Sancho “fell into familiar patterns” after that.

According to the article, Ten Hag had grown frustrated with Sancho’s punctuality and what he viewed as sluggishness in training. Ten Hag had previously demoted Marcus Rashford from his starting XI for arriving 45 seconds late to a team meeting. Sancho has underperformed since United acquired him for £74 million ($92m) from Borussia Dortmund in 2021, and several United players have expressed their frustration with him as well.

The fact that Sancho, who traveled to New York for vacation during the international break, took down his now-famous social media post criticizing Ten Hag on Tuesday is viewed as an indication that he is ready to mend fences with the manager.
