Manchester United boss Erik ten Hag must listen to Ralf Rangnick’s advice on Jadon Sancho

Ralf Rangnick’s wa’rning about Manchester United’s Jado’n Sancho should be heeded by Erik ten Hag. Ten H’ag has signed a three-year deal with United, with the opt’ion of a fourth year. The Dutc’hman will have to motivate the gro’up he inherits to improve, which incl’udes Sancho, who has struggled to establish cons’istency at United.

Sancho joined Unit’ed for £73 million in the summer, but he has struggled to make an impact since returning to Manch’ester. Sancho scored five goals and added three assists in 38 appeara’nces for United last season, but he doesn’t appear to be the same p’layer that lit up the Bundesliga.

When asked about Sancho’s Jan’uary form, Rangnick predicted that the player would improve with greater confid’ence. Sancho was subjected to a higher degree of expectation at United th’an he was in Germany, according to the former interim b’oss.

“There’s a difference between com’ing to Borussia Dortmund as an 18-year-old [he was 17 at the time], unkn’own, bright English youngster,” Rangnick stated. “From then, it’s en’tirely up to you to improve and make a success of it.”

“The degree of expectation was a lot lo’wer compared to when you come to a club like Manchester Unite’d at the age of 23 [he is now 21] and pay a hefty transfer price with a hi’gh level of expectation.”

“Everyone anticipated that he wou’ld be one of the team’s greatest players. This is a more difficult environ’ment psychologically and emotionally than the one he had at Bor’ussia Dortmund, and these are the kinds of measures he needs to tak’e to become a great player at this club over the next ten yea’rs.

“We can provide instructions and all the nec’essary help, but it is ultimately up to him to take the followi’ng steps.” It’s not just about getting the best training possible. ‘Con’firm the performances you show in training when you’re playi’ng on the pitch,’ I told him the day before yesterday [Sunday].
