Manchester United manager, Erik ten Hag, has steadfastly maintained strict disciplinary measures at the club, even as his dispute with Jadon Sancho continues. Ten Hag expressed his views in a press conference ahead of Man United’s match against Brighton on Saturday. He said that since arriving at the club last year, he saw that there was no good culture within the club.
Over the past two weeks, Manchester United has been at the center of attention due to a number of controversies and disciplinary issues. Since their last match against Arsenal on September 3, Jadon Sancho has been in the spotlight. The player was told to train separately from the first team following his controversial public statements about Ten Hag. Meanwhile, Antony postponed his return to training after the international break due to his alleged involvement in an assault case.
Ten Hag was very firm in demanding that Sancho apologize to himself and the club. He has threatened that if the player does not comply with his request, Sancho will not play for Manchester United during his reign. However, Sancho has so far refused to comply with Ten Hag’s demands, believing that he has the right to respond to criticism made to the public and which he considers to doubt his professionalism.
In his press conference, Ten Hag also highlighted the importance of managing the diverse characters in his squad and explained that no one is punished excessively for just one mistake. He said, in building a team, group dynamics are very important, but the most important thing is the interests of the team above all else.
“It’s about team building, group dynamics,” Ten Hag said. “But the most important thing is about the team, the team is always above everything. In that team, everyone plays their role and everyone has a different character, you have to manage those different characters, but the most important thing is that the team is always on top of everything.” closed Ten Hag.
Ten Hag’s steadfastness in implementing this disciplinary policy has become a hot topic in the world of football. Many are debating whether this harsh action will produce positive results or actually damage the atmosphere within the team. Meanwhile, fans and football observers continue to await further developments in the Ten Hag and Sancho dispute and its impact on the team’s performance
