πŸ‘€ Manchester United forced to issue clarification about Erik ten Hag causes confusion during press conference

Who was Erik ten Hag referring to here?

Manchester United were forced to issue a clarification after Erik ten Hag appeared to suggest Jadon Sancho was nearing a comeback to the team, when in fact he meant to say β€˜Sergio’, meaning Sergio Reguilon.

Sancho is currently not involved in the Man Utd first-team squad due to an ongoing row with Ten Hag, who has demanded the player apologise after a row earlier in the season when the manager questioned his performances and efforts in training.

Speaking at his press conference today, as shown in the video clip above, Ten Hag seemed to surprisingly announce that Sancho could be back soon, but he in fact meant Reguilon, as the club later confirmed.

Posting on X, Manchester Evening News journalist Samuel Luckhurst said: β€œTen Hag definitely said 'Sergio', not 'Sancho' in response to my question on team news. It sounded like he said 'Sancho' but club confirmed he was referring to Reguilon.”

Sancho is more likely to leave United in January than play for the club again any time soon, according to recent reports from Fabrizio Romano.

The England international joined the Red Devils from Borussia Dortmund back in the summer of 2021, and it’s fair to say he’s proven a major disappointment in his time at Old Trafford.

Is Ten Hag right to keep leaving Sancho out of his plans? Let us know your thoughts in the comments!
