Darren Bent, a former player for Tottenham, remarked on talkSPORT radio that if Jadon Sancho wanted to stay at Manchester United and had a burning desire to do so, he should have done it internally.
“You go to the manager’s office and tell him or her, ‘Look, I don’t really like what you did there [in public]. Just let me know if my training standards are inadequate. We shall attempt to deal with it after he has probably already told him.
But the fact that he made himself public suggests to me that he wants out. He is at his limit. He may find the challenge to be too much for him, which is unfortunate because he has potential and a lot of skill. The Premier League might be too fast for him.
Erik ten Hag asserted that Jadon Sancho was left off the team as a result of his subpar performance in practice after the 3-1 loss against Arsenal before the international break.
The 23-year-old, calling himself “a scapegoat,” then publicly accused the manager of lying on social media, implying that there were further reasons why he wasn’t playing for Man United.
