Repeating history? Considering what Ten Hag did at Ajax when a player disobeyed his orders

Anyone who has been following the Dutch manager for some time should not be shocked by the manner Erik Ten Hag is treating Jadon Sancho. Ten Hag has a reputation for being harsh with players who don’t follow his rules and requirements.

Amin Younes, an Ajax player from the 2017–18 season, resisted entering the game against Heerenveen until the final few minutes. The event was documented on film.

Younes was then demoted to Ajax’s second squad by the incensed manager, who had fired him from the first team. Younes later relocated to Napoli but struggled to make a name for himself there. At the age of barely 30, he is currently without a club.

Ten Hag said Football Oranje, “I only want players who are 100% motivated because we still have six games to play.”

Amin doesn’t seem to be giving Ajax his whole focus, according to the report.

This is not significantly different from Erik Ten Hag’s justification for Jadon Sancho’s exclusion from the matchday squad versus Arsenal: At Manchester United, you have to perform at a certain level every day.
