Since joining in 2021, Jadon Sancho could not make the same impact we saw when he was with Borussia Dortmund. The player just scored 12 goals for Manchester United in 82 appearances. But the player seemed to go into the bad books of ten Hag, who needs an apology for his rebellion. Not just the coach, but Dougie Critchley, a presenter and an expert, feels that Jadon Sancho needs to apologize and come back instead of wasting time.

He said “I just think [Jadon] Sancho is wasting a great opportunity here. With the amount of Injuries, with the amount of controversies surrounding players in his position.” “Just from Jadon Sancho’s perspective, whatever has happened behind the scenes, I just encourage you to apologize and try moving forward.”
