Erik Ten Hag urges patience as Man United await Jadon Sancho return
Erik ten Hag calls for patience as Manchester United awaits Jadon Sancho’s return.
Erik ten Hag has asked for patience from fans as they work with the England international away from the spotlight and has cautioned them that Manchester United won’t be rushing Jadon Sancho back into action.
Since missing out on a position at the World Cup, the 22-year-old has not played for United subsequently October and has since been put on an individual training schedule that includes brief participation in group sessions.
Ten Hag emphasized that hurrying Sancho back into competitive action is not under consideration and that no time period has been set for his comeback, despite the fact that Ten Hag has been pleading for attacking reinforcements in the January transfer window.
“I would like to have Jadon back as soon as possible, but I can’t force this process,” Ten Hag said. “I will do everything that’s in my power but some processes you can’t force and this is one of them.
“I also have to show patience although I don’t have patience because we have a lack of opportunities in the front line, players who are available and capable to contribute not only in the Premier League but on the highest standard in football.

“Jadon is one who, when he is fit, he will contribute and we will have an extra option and so we have more chance to win a lot of games
“I hope he can return quickly but I can’t say how long it will be. In this moment, he is not fit enough, no.
“We have some hurdles to take. I think he’s (heading) in a good direction. I can’t force this process so I don’t do. I would be really happy in the moment if he returned in the squad for team training, that’s the next step.”
The United boss added: “Football players are not robots. No one is the same, I think for everyone you need an individual approach.
“Sometimes it’s good to go away from the place where you’re at daily and to get a new fight and spirit. People have a different approach and that can give you the right push to get back on track.”
