Manchester United manager Erik ten Hag insists he will continue to maintain and control standards at the club in a veiled message concerning his fallout with Jadon Sancho.
However, the Dutch tactician assured that the United is strong and in good spirits ahead of this weekend’s Premier League home clash against Brighton.
Speaking to the reporters on Friday, Erik ten Hag was not direct when asked about the Jadon Sancho situation at Manchester United.
The Dutchman said: “I think everything is said. So the squad is strong, in good spirits and good mood going into the game. You have sometimes setbacks.
“Strict lines is what the club asked me because there was no good culture before last season. To set good standards, that is what I did and it is my job to control the standards.
“It is never someone makes one mistake, it is a whole process before you come to a certain outcome about strict lines. There is a structure to cross lines so you have to be strong.”
Meanwhile, Sancho is currently training away from the first-team squad after refusing to apologise to Red Devils boss Ten Hag for his outburst on social media.
