‘Take a look at yourself’ – Ex-manager gives advice to Jadon Sancho

Former Scotland manager Gordon Strachan has slammed Manchester United forward Jadon Sancho for his unruly behaviour towards United boss Erik the Hag.

The Dutch tactician questioned the player’s attitude and application in training which saw him dropped from the Red Devil’s squad in our defeat against Arsenal before the international break.

The England international was incensed by the comments and claimed he is being made a ‘scapegoat’ in a post he shared on his X account.

Strachan said that Sancho needs to learn to handle the truth and deal with his issues internally. He also urged the player to apologise to Red Devils boss Erik ten Hag.

Speaking to Gambling Zone, Strachan said: “Players always want the truth from their manager. In this instance, Erik ten Hag has answered the question honestly and the player hasn’t liked his response, but Jadon needs to learn to handle the truth.

“Jadon needs to look at himself and figure out what he’s doing wrong, rather than feeling as though he’s being attacked. Of course we don’t know the whole story but that’s how I see it from the outside.

“The first thing I would say to a player is ‘have a look at yourself’. Look at yourself before anybody else, it’s as simple as that. Go and look at your games and tell me if that’s as good as you think you can be. If it is, then you can’t play here because the standard is far bigger at Manchester United than anywhere else. If I was that young man, I would have a look at myself and apologise to the manager.”
