Every single Manchester United fan was excited when Erik ten Hag was appointed manager of the club back in April. After what he did at Ajax, he is considered among the best minds in world football today. His offensive play style is exactly what the team has needed for a long time. However, on the first game of the season, he and his team lost against Brighton.

After a long week, the Red Devils will face Brentford hoping to turn things around so fans can see what the new manager is all about. Jadon Sancho was interviewed by ‘Premier League Productions’ and was asked the new season with a new manager, to which he said: “He is really intense, as you can see in the pre-season”.

Then, the young forward explained a little bit of how trainings are under ten Hag: “Let’s say we do attack versus defense and the defense score, then the attackers have to do five press ups. He is assuring us that some things are not allowed. Especially in transition play. We are all taking that in, and we are taking it well”.

He also added that the team environment is really good during training and in the dressing room: “One of his (ten Hag) big things when he was coming in was team bonding. I think everyone is working well together. The chemistry within the team is very important, everyone has to be happy within themselves and interact with each other. It plays a key part”.

Jadon Sancho is looking to prove every hater wrong

The young winger started his career with Manchester City’s academy but left at a really young age to Borussia Dortmund. In Germany he evolved into one of the best young talents in the world. In 136 games he scored 50 goals and gave out 64 assists with Dortmund. Last year United signed him for €85 million but didn’t have the greatest first season after only scoring 5 goals and giving 3 assists.
