Troy Deeney: Nobody has ever called Jadon Sancho a bad trainer… is Erik ten Hag’s man-management style the real problem?

I HAVE never heard anyone from Watford, Manchester City or Borussia Dortmund say Jadon Sancho was a bad trainer.

So I appreciate why he came out and said what he did on social media in response to Erik ten Hag.

As a manager now, you have to be extremely careful with what you say about players.

Sancho has just under ten million followers on Instagram.

All it takes is one message and he can reach every commercial outlet and millions of fans around the globe, and now it is a big thing.

And they will be supporting Sancho’s side of the argument.

So, Ten Hag is now going to feel some heat.

Is it his style of man-management that has caused this?

The easy thing is to blame the player, so I can see why Sancho has responded.

Can you imagine the number of messages he is getting on social media on every single post, questioning his commitment or desire because of what Ten Hag said.


In my mind, if someone questions that, they may as well be spitting on you.

At some point, as a player, you think: Hold on, this cannot be my fault, and you end up saying something.

In hindsight, would he take that message back? Probably. He just needs to ride it out now. What I will say is that Sancho probably needs to develop some thicker skin.

If someone goes and questions your desire, go and prove him otherwise but he needs to know the specifics.

Does he need to run more? Does he need to gym more? Does he need to listen more in meetings?
