Since Erik ten Hag joined the club, he showed every player who is the boss. Even Rashford was dropped from Manchester United’s starting lineup against Wolves last season at Molineux because he came late to the team meeting. This shows that Ten Hag is an authoritarian. He wants to stamp his authority in the team. So, any drop in level during training will not be tolerated by Ten Hag and his coaches. That is the reason Ten Hag gave when he was asked why he dropped Jadon Sancho in the game against Arsenal. Jadon Sancho came out with a pipe bomb saying that he had been scapegoated.

Transfer journalist Fabrizio Romano shed light on this story on his YouTube channel. Here is what he revealed about Jadon Sancho and Erik ten Hag’s turmoil.

Jadon Sancho believes Erik ten Hag is conspiring against him

As Jadon Sancho said in that statement, he thinks that Manchester United manager Erik ten Hag is scapegoating him. The reason why he was dropped was not because of his performance in the training and the reason was something else. People close to Sancho also told him that the reason for him getting dropped was not for his performance. It was for a different reason he was not picked in the squad.

What is Erik ten Hag’s stance on Jadon Sancho?

Erik ten Hag supported Jadon Sancho last year when he was going through tough times. He integrated him into the team well and now he wants to see performance from him. Erik ten Hag is not happy with Sancho’s level of training and he thinks that Sancho needs to step up if he wants to get into the squad. The situation between Sancho and Ten Hag is getting tense.
