During his pre-game news conference prior to Man United’s matchup against Brighton, Erik ten Hag was frequently questioned about Jadon Sancho.
Jadon Sancho’s name was avoided by Manchester United manager Erik ten Hag, who also emphasized that he took over a “no good culture” at the team.
Ten Hag has expelled Sancho after the latter accused him of lying in a Twitter post on his choice to leave him out of the team for the 3-1 Premier League loss against Arsenal.
Prior to United concluding Sancho’s disciplinary matter and Sancho practising separately from the first team, the 23-year-old will not be taken into consideration for selection.
Sancho was the subject of the first three inquiries during Ten Hag’s pre-game news conference for Brighton’s visit, but he failed to mention the winger’s exile.
Ten Hag stated, alluding to the Arsenal game, “We close the game.” “We work on the feedback, give the squad input, and I thought we played extremely well at Arsenal.
You could tell before the game that we trained and prepared very well, and I think we deserved much more there, but it wasn’t on our side, that was the conclusion of our analysis.
“However, as you can see, we are advancing against a strong Arsenal, but I believe we ought to have won that game at the very least.
“We didn’t, but we accept the performance. The players have returned and have trained well, and we are prepared to battle Brighton with a lot of vigor.
“I believe the conversation [regarding Sancho] is over. As I already stated, the team is strong and in a positive frame of mind before the game.
They (the players) are very good since there are occasionally setbacks in seasons, players get hurt, or they are unavailable for various reasons, so you build a squad. The team is very strong, and the players are driven to do well.
“The key is strict line. The club wanted me to establish certain standards because there was a bad culture prior to last season, and I did just that. I’m responsible for maintaining the standards.
It takes a long time to reach a decision about strict lines, so it’s never just one mistake that someone does. You must be strong, without a doubt, if staff, players, or anyone else crosses lines inside the framework.
Ten Hag continued, “I don’t know” when Antony will play once more for United. The Greater Manchester Police and Brazil police are both looking into claims of domestic abuse, and the Brazil international has taken a leave of absence.
Ten Hag stated, “He’s disappointed, but he’s alright.”
