Manchester United manager Erik ten Hag questioned for his ability to deal with mental health issues amidst Jadon Sancho spat
Ten Hag explained Sancho’s exclusion from matchday squad against Arsenal was due to poor training performances.
Sancho instantly retaliated through social media platform, X, by claiming he has been “made a scapegoat for a long time”.
Fowler believed the situation could have been handled better by the United manager. As the former England forward wrote:
The Liverpool legend further explained his stance by stating that the managers have to discipline the squad. There are club rules and regulation that every player need to follow. However, all of the actions are taken place behind the scenes and away from public eyes.
Fowler claimed that Sancho only corrected what he believed was inaccurate about him while further imposing the need to safeguard the mental health and well-being of the players.
Ten Hag gave Sancho a 3 months break last season to work on his physical and mental health so he is aware of the vulnerable mental aspect of the player. The public spat came as a shock to many fans and pundits alike.
