Man Utd have NO IDEA when Jadon Sancho will play again as Erik ten Hag has hearts with troubled £73m star

ERIK TEN HAG has no idea when Jadon Sancho will return to action after a series of heart-to-heart talks with the troubled star.

The £73million Manchester United winger missed the club’s break in Spain last week and is working alone on a special schedule to help him recover physically and mentally from his struggles.

Sancho, 23, who last month agreed a trip to the Netherlands for fitness and mental wellbeing with boss Ten Hag, is unlikely to play for United again before the New Year.

Ten Hag said: “I’ve had several conversations with Jadon. He’s not here at the moment.

“We have a drop in level and that happens sometimes, you don’t know why or what’s causing it.

“That’s what we’re doing now, trying to research and now we’re trying to get him back there. It’s a combination of physical and mental.

“We want to get him back as soon as possible, but I can’t predict when that will be.”

Sancho has not played for United since the 1-1 Premier League draw with Chelsea on October 22.

The former Borussia Dortmund full-back suffered a bout of illness while Marcus Rashford and Alejandro Garnacho both shone at left flank in his absence.

Sancho closed his social media accounts before spending time in the Netherlands. The club said they wanted to focus on his family and fitness.

But he did not travel with his teammates for their two-game break in Spain last week.

Ten Hag saw a massive drop in the player’s preseason performances after just a few games of the new Prem campaign.

Sancho will not be in the squad to face Burnley in the fourth round of the Carabao Cup next Wednesday.

In July last year, he missed a penalty in England’s penalty shoot-out defeat by Italy in the Euro 2020 final at Wembley.

The other unlucky England players that day, Rashford and Bukayo Saka, returned to the squad and played key roles in the World Cup campaign.

But after his decline in form, Sancho wasn’t even in the running for a seat on the plane to Qatar.

Meanwhile, his Old Trafford and England team-mates Rashford, Luke Shaw and Harry Maguire will be offered special advice if they need it to get through their World Cup heartbreak.

Even if France’s Raphael Varane and Argentina’s Lisandro Martinez return – either as winners or losers – there will be someone by their side to help them.

United’s backroom staff found it difficult to lift players after last year’s Euros, particularly the Three Lions contingent.

Ten Hag added: “We are prepared for any situation.

“There will be some who are really happy and some who are really disappointed.

“And there can be something in between, maybe if you play the final but lose, you’re going to be really disappointed at first.”
