Erik ten Hag, the manager of Manchester United, lets Jadon Sancho back, but he issues a “culture” warning

Erik ten Hag has given Jadon Sancho permission to rejoin his Manchester United team, but only after he issues an apology.

Sancho, 23, has been expelled from the first team because he posted criticism of the Old Trafford manager on social media following the Dutchman’s revelation of the reason behind his September matchday squad exclusion.

The England winger said he was being used as a “scapegoat” after Ten Hag claimed his lack of inclusion in the team was due to poor training output.

Sancho appears to be going to be sold by United when the transfer market starts next month. Ten Hag, however, remarked: “So, it was about that and it is about a culture where every player needs to meet certain requirements.

“He is aware of what needs to be done there, and the decision to go back lies with him.” It is up to him; he is aware of what needs to be done. When asked if Sancho was still receiving full pay while training away from the first squad, Ten Hag responded that it was a “internal matter.”

Nemanja Matic, a former United midfielder, disclosed this week that both Sancho and Paul Pogba frequently arrived late for practice while they were players.

Victor Lindelof sustained an injury during the victory over Chelsea, thus he will be absent from today’s match at Old Trafford against Bournemouth.

Luke Shaw will therefore probably start at center back, which could mean Sergio Reguilon gets the start. The Tottenham defender who is currently on loan might return to the North London team next month because of a clause allowing them to bring him back.

In the season-long loan arrangement, there is a two-way break clause. Tyrell Malacia, United’s other left-back, won’t be returning until the new year.

“We have to make a final decision, but there are Spurs involved as well,” Ten Hag continued.
