The contradiction analysis of Ten Hag and Sancho, in Pep Guardiola's words! Ferguson didn't dare to do that either
It's the beginning of the season again, and it's another contradiction between the bosses. Having experienced the great tragedy of the Cristiano Ronaldo incident, this time Manchester United are not as pessimistic as they were at the beginning. But there are contradictions that naturally need to be resolved, which is nothing more than two endings: one is to part ways; The second is to shake hands and make peace. At present, the outside world is inclined to the first ending, but it remains to be seen. Returning to the contradiction itself, we believe that this is certainly not accidental, but inevitable caused by quantitative change. And if we delve deeper into the cause of the contradiction, we can't help but lament Guardiola's evaluation of Sancho back then, he basically got it right.
As one of the Blue Moon's academy triad, Sancho was the first to leave Manchester City. You can't say he chose the wrong one, because there are no opportunities in the talented Manchester City, and Dort is willing to give him a chance, and the famous star processing factory. But when asked why Jadon Sancho was leaving City, Guardiola said: "He didn't want to take on the challenge [to get into the first team] to see if he could get that chance. So, he decided to go there (Dot) and wish him all the best. ”
After joining Dort, Sancho developed smoothly. He started to establish himself in the first team in the second year, and in the 18-19 season, he started as a substitute and gradually won the main position with excellent performances. The 19-20 season peaked, with 36 starts in 44 games this season, scoring 20 goals and assisting 19 times, ranking second in the Bundesliga assists list, and his value also rose to 130 million euros. He joined Manchester United for €85 million in the summer window of '21 and paid £350,000 a week on his first contract.
After returning to the Premier League and getting a high salary, Sancho's personality of "not wanting to accept challenges" began to show, to put it bluntly, it was not strong enough. In Manchester United, it was a low open, but it never went high, but went all the way down in the shock. The value has also fallen all the way, falling to 45 million today, shrinking by more than half.
Sancho's talent is undoubted, and any player who pursues and is not willing to fail will redouble his efforts in training and games to try to return to the top. But Sancho didn't, except for that special training, we have never heard of Sancho staying alone after training to practice. After being criticized for not being active in running for 3 years, problems such as weak confrontation have not improved, but he has been criticized by the manager for not meeting the training status.
And Sancho did not want to use his own efforts to prove the head coach wrong, but to fight with the head coach on social media. This may seem tough, but it is actually a sign of not wanting to accept the challenge. Since he dares to publicly challenge the authority of the manager, he is probably already considering leaving Manchester United. And where can you go without Manchester United at this time? Only Saudi Arabia, and rumors have emerged. For Sancho, only Saudi Arabia is willing to bear his high salary. If he chooses to go to Saudi Arabia at this time, is it another performance of unwillingness to accept the challenge?
Ten Hag took over Manchester United as the cornerstone of the team, even at a significant premium. In the past two summer windows, almost every position rumored to have been with Manchester United will have the presence of old players. So far, 269 million has been spent to bring in 5 players, including Donny van de Beek's words, a total of 6 people. To be honest, such a stubborn and paranoid idea of attracting people, Ferguson did not dare to do this back then. There are three main points in Fergus's recruitment ideas: 1. Promote excellent youth players; 2. Buy the best players in the Premier League; 3. Foreign talents. This is completely different from Ten Hag's focus on old players or players with Dutch backgrounds.
Ten Hag will definitely stick to this idea of team building, and more and more players with Dutch backgrounds will join Manchester United, and the old department will be gradually cleaned up. After Marcus Rashford "slid his hand" to praise Sancho, it could not even be ruled out that the Manchester United academy prince would also be the target of Ten Hag's cleanup.
Is this idea of team building correct? Unknown for now. But it's good for Ten Hag, because this team is completely branded by him and the position is more secure. If the record is not good in the future, Manchester United's management will have to weigh if they want to change the manager.
