When Erik ten Hag came to Manchester United, he caused optimism among the fans. After the defeat against Brentford, it looked like United would have another miserable season, however, three victories after that gave United fans confidence that they could reach the goal.
Jadon Sancho is one of those who plays particularly well under the leadership of the Dutchman. The Englishman explained what is the main difference compared to Erik ten Hag and previous managers. "I would say more information, a clearer plan and what to do, especially in some areas of the pitch," Sancho said, as quoted by manchestereveningnews.
"We’re training more together and as you saw from pre-season, we’re playing well together. We’re playing in the style which the manager wants. Everyone is loving it at the moment. The style of play in training is what we’re working on.
Some of that you see, some of it is the intelligence of our players, creating and knowing each other well."
The game against Brentford was a wake-up call for changes. After that, Erik ten Hag prepared a hellish training plan for the players.
They had to run many kilometers. It seems to have been a good tactic given the form after that. Sancho confirmed that the game against Brentford woke up the team. "Definitely [it could be decisive], we knew we had to wake up after the Brentford game, we’ve got three wins in a row now and we have to keep this up and hopefully keep getting some more wins," he said.
"We had to do it [the running], we shouldn’t be losing like this, everyone took it as extra running and more fitness and after that we just got on with it." Jadon Sancho was excellent in the match against Leicester.
He scored one goal and gave his best during the entire match. This young Englishman has a certain goal for this season, but he did not want to reveal which one. "As a forward you always want to create and score goals, I want to help my team, to score and assist," he said.
"I do have my own targets but I won’t share them. I would say I’ve still got more to come, but I feel good, I feel like I’m in a good place at the moment on and off the pitch." The next challenge for United will be Arsenal. The match will be played on Sunday, and it will be especially interesting because both teams are in great shape.
