Erik ten Hag’s patience wearing thin with Jadon Sancho

Erik ten Hag is said to be growing increasingly frustrated by Jadon Sancho.

In his first season, we knew Ten Hag would be analysing the squad from top to bottom. That way when the transfer window opens he can decide which players need to moved on.

United’s financial records make for ugly reading, with a frightening debt hanging over the club as well as FFP concerns. That leaves Ten Hag with no other choice but to axe a few of the current players.

Moreover, United can be accused of holding onto players for too long. Phil Jones is the most obvious example.

According to the Manchester Evening News, Ten Hag is pushing for United to become more ruthless when it comes to letting players leave.

Harry Maguire, Brandon Williams, Alex Telles and Anthony Martial are set to be transfer listed, as will Eric Bailly if the Ivorian centre-back fails to hit the appearance milestone on loan at Marseille.

The report also states that offers are welcome for back-up goalkeeper Dean Henderson, while Ten Hag is becoming ‘increasingly impatient’ with Jadon Sancho.

Sancho has made just five starts in as many months and he is not having enough of an impact on the games he plays in. It’s up to him to take the opportunities he gets between now and the end of the season.

Moreover, United are not planning for the sale of Scott McTominay, despite reported interest from Newcastle.

Let us know in the comments section if you would keep Sancho in the summer.

  1. I’m not being funny but how can Eric Ten Hag be frustrated with Jadon Sancho when he hasn’t been given many chances as Antony now he should be very frustrated with him at least Sancho takes player’s on all Antony does is plays the ball back all the time

  2. Man U has handled the Sancho issue poorly.You spend 2 seasons chasing after a guy heralding him as the final piece of the puzzle who should play on the right wing but once signed spends most of the time on the bench & when he does play, it’s from the left wing.Up to now we still don’t know what his best/most favoured position is.With prodigies like Amad & Pellistri both of whom are playing for their national teams coming through & Antony probably now getting more used to PL football it might be difficult for Sancho to fully realize his potential.If I were him I’d start looking elsewhere but ultimately it’s up to the manager to decide.

  3. Sancho can’t cope with the physicality of the Premier League and is not quick enough . I would be looking to offer him to Borussia Dortmund in part exchange for Bellingham. He was clearly happier playing in German football and could revive his career there . The Japanese winger at Brighton would be a good replacement.

  4. Sancho is not the types of player that we need now.
    He doesn’t play with seriousness, he lacks that ability to fight when he lost the ball.

    Yesterday, when I saw him come on, I knew we were in serious trouble and it was a very wrong changes made by the coach. Anthony was much better with his fighting ability when we lost the ball upfront.

    1. Criticism of Sancho is undeniably warranted. He hasn’t been good enough since signing from BVB, but to say he doesn’t play with ‘seriousness’ is harsh.

      Looks to me like a player in the wrong team.
