Manchester United Manager praises Sancho after Dortmund win


Manchester United’s head honcho, Erik ten Hag, didn’t hold back his admiration for Jadon Sancho after Borussia Dortmund clinched a 1-0 victory over Paris Saint-Germain in the initial leg of their Champions League semi-final on Wednesday.

Erik ten Hag Extols Sancho’s Brilliance

Ten Hag, the Manchester United gaffer, showered accolades on the 24-year-old England winger, currently on loan from the Red Devils, in the wake of his remarkable performance against PSG. “Yesterday, he showcased precisely why Manchester United invested in him and why he stands as a valuable asset for our club,” stated Ten Hag. “I am genuinely pleased with Jadon’s stellar performance. We await the unfolding of his journey in the future.”

Sancho’s Remarkable Journey

Hailing from South London, Sancho made his switch to Manchester United from Dortmund in a record-breaking £73 million deal back in 2021. However, discord surfaced between Sancho and Ten Hag, leading to a temporary departure. Notably, in September, Sancho was omitted from the United squad during a 3-1 defeat to Arsenal. Following the match, ten Hag attributed this decision to Sancho’s lacklustre performance in training that week. In response, Sancho, albeit later deleting the tweet, refuted his manager’s statement, alleging being unfairly singled out. His refusal to retract the statement resulted in his exclusion from the first-team roster and subsequent loan transfer.

Ten Hag’s Dismissal of Transfer Speculations

In a recent media interaction before the forthcoming clash with Crystal Palace, Erik ten Hag vehemently refuted claims suggesting an imminent overhaul of the team. “It’s preposterous,” exclaimed ten Hag, addressing the circulating reports. “Throughout my tenure, every transfer window is rife with speculations, linking over 200 players to Manchester United. Our research reveals the fallacy of such claims. Additionally, the notion of selling off our entire squad each summer is utterly baseless. Journalists must exercise prudence and verify the authenticity of their sources before sensationalizing headlines. Let’s prioritize accuracy over sensationalism.”
