Ex-Manchester United star reveals Erik ten Hag under fire over treatment of Jadon Sancho and Cristiano Ronaldo

Former Manchester United star Alan Brazil revealed that he heard about players at the club feeling disgusted at the manager Erik ten Hag’s treatment of Jadon Sancho and Cristiano Ronaldo. The 64-year-old further stated that the players at Manchester United talk about how Jadon Sancho is a great guy who works his socks off for the club on and off the football pitch.

The controversy surrounding Erik ten Hag in regard to Cristiano Ronaldo began at the end of 2022 when the Portuguese footballing superstar left Manchester United after he was dropped on the bench for the first half of last season. The 36-year-old gave an exclusive interview to Piers Morgan about the tough times he endured at Manchester United, which led to his departure from the club, just before his arrival at Saudi Arabian club Al-Nassr.

Jadon Sancho has been exiled from the Manchester United squad currently, during the 2023-24 season, after failing to meet the standards required by the manager Erik ten Hag in training. It led to the 23-year-old airing his grievances about the club on social media, and since then, reports have emerged that he won’t get a look into the squad until a formal apology is issued regarding the matter.

While speaking to talkSPORT, Alan Brazil was quoted as saying, “This is what I’ve been hearing… from a Man United player who told someone I know very well. He said the players are not having the manager. They’re not having him at all. By all accounts, they are disgusted by the way he treated Ronaldo – and they say Sancho is a great guy who works his socks off.”

Notably, Manchester United haven’t had a good start to the 2023-24 season in the Premier League and UEFA Champions League. They have already lost three home matches in all competitions at home within just two months, which is unheard of, in the long and illustrious history of the club.
