EPL: Look at yourself, apologise to Ten Hag – Ex-Man Utd midfielder tells Sancho



Former Manchester United midfielder, Gordon Strachan has advised winger Jadon Sancho to look at himself and apologize to his manager Erik ten Hag following his recent comments on social media.

Sancho has emerged as a major topic of discussion after calling out Ten Hag’s complaints about his training routine to the media some few days ago.

The 23-year-old has since deleted his post on Twitter. However, he is believed to be out of his boss’ first-team plans for this campaign.

Speaking to GamblingZone, Strachan lambasted the 23-cap England international for his recent attitude towards Ten Hag. He elaborated:

“Players always want the truth from their manager. In this instance, Ten Hag has answered the question honestly and the player hasn’t liked his response. But Jadon needs to learn to handle the truth.

“I think in hindsight, Ten Hag will surely look back and regret saying what he did through the media, and it would have been more effective telling him face-to-face to avoid what we’ve got now.”

He added, “However, Jadon needs to look at himself and figure out what he’s doing wrong, rather than feeling as though he’s being attacked. The first thing I would say to a player is, have a look at yourself. Look at yourself before anybody else. Go and look at your games and tell me if that is as good as you think you can be.

“If it is, then you can’t play here because the standard is far bigger at Manchester United than anywhere else. If I was that young man, I would have a look at myself and apologize to the manager.”
