Erik ten Hag responds to Jadon Sancho’s excellent Champions League performance


Erik ten Hag says Jadon Sancho represents a ‘high value’ for Manchester United after his impressive performance for Borussia Dortmund in the Champions League semi final.

Sancho was one of Dortmund’s standout performers as they sealed a 1-0 win over Paris Saint-Germain in the first leg of their Champions League semi final on Wednesday evening.

The 24-year-old has not played for United since August after a public bust-up with Ten Hag and was allowed to leave Old Trafford on loan in the January transfer window.

United now face a decision over Sancho’s long-term future at United this summer but Ten Hag has shown no indication that he is willing to allow the winger back into his squad.

When asked about Sancho’s latest performance for Dortmund, Ten Hag said on Thursday: ‘So let’s say this – yesterday he played very good and he’s a very good player.

Yesterday he showed why Manchester United bought him and he showed he represents a high value for Manchester United, which is good.

‘I’m happy for Jadon, for the performance yesterday, and we’ll see what is going to happen in the future.’
