Erik ten Hag 'concerned' about attitude of another player at Man Utd amid Jadon Sancho saga
| Last updated
Manchester United boss Erik ten Hag has held private concerns over the attitudes of two other senior players amid the situation involving Jadon Sancho, according to reports.
The 23-year-old has not been named in a matchday squad for United since last month, and the club released a statement confirming that Sancho was doing a 'personal training programme' away from the rest of the squad.
Sky Sports News reported that Ten Hag wants Sancho to apologise him before allowing him back into the squad.
That is yet to happen, with the Dutchman stating after Wednesday's 3-0 win over Crystal Palace, he stated: "That is up to him, I don't speak about unavailable players."
Now, a new report has emerged about Ten Hag's feelings towards other members of the United squad.
Ten Hag 'concerned' over Man Utd player
As per a report from ESPN, according to a source, Ten Hag 'remains concerned about the attitude of a couple of his players' - although the identities of the players in question are unclear.
It is claimed that Sancho's punishment is showing to the rest of the squad that the manager will not tolerate those 'not pulling in the same direction'.
The report adds that he is preparing to sell Sancho in January or the summer, with the club likely to take a big financial hit on a player they signed from Borussia Dortmund for around £72 million in 2021.
Speaking in his pre-match press conference prior to the 3-1 defeat to Brighton earlier this month, Ten Hag stated: "With this generation, it's about team construction and the group dynamic.
"In the team, everyone plays his role, everyone is different, there are different characters. You have to manage those characters. But the team is above anything else.
"The club asked me, because there was a no-good culture before last season, to set some standards. That's what I did. It's my job to control the standards.
"For players and staff, if there is a structure, they cross lines, you have to be strong."
