Ten Hag on Kane’s remarkable ‘revelation’ and Sancho’s shocking ‘destiny’ leaves Manchester United stunned

Manchester United are in chaos after Erik ten Hag ‘revealed’ something everyone knew almost a year ago, and Jadon Sancho discovered an obvious ‘destiny’.

After hours
Following the complete disaster of their leader online mail story on Thursday, in which it was revealed that Sir Jim Ratcliffe and some other INEOS members had eaten “just hours after” most of the Manchester United squad became available for transfer.It’s good to see that lessons have been learned immediately.

“Revealed: Manchester United footed the bill for WAGs’ day off – including a posh restaurant and Harvey Nichols goodie bags – just 24 hours after scrapping FA Cup final benefits for ordinary members of staff at a supposed fight against spending”, is the typical monstrous headline, and the nonsense of “just a few hours later” is not so incongruous this time. But best of all is the expensive menu that asks, “What could the WAGS have ordered in San Carlo?”

A return to form, no doubt.

Full withdrawal
A lot has been written about Jadon Sancho lately, including him. Joins the list of reasons why Manchester United fired Erik ten Hag.

There has also been entirely media-driven talk about a place in England’s Euro squad, because that is precisely how these things work.

In it daily mirrorJohn Cross brings us this revelation, and he didn’t choose the headline to be fair:

Sancho learns that England remembers the fate of Euro 2024 after starring for Dortmund

This is huge. Is Gareth Southgate, usually quite risk-averse, about to trash his carefully laid plans for a major tournament and recall a player whose last cap for England was in October 2021? All for a few decent months on loan in which said player has scored three and assisted two goals? While The rivals for their position are in incredible shape and are not guaranteed a place.?

Short answer: no.

Slightly longer answer: “Jadon Sancho ran out of time to win a Euro reversal.” Manchester United winger Sancho has impressed and shown signs that he is getting back to his best during his loan spell with Borussia Dortmund… but he is due to arrive. too late to force his return to England’s reckoning this summer.

Either way: obviously not. And it really didn’t need to be clarified just because Peter Schmeichel and an eight-pint Jamie Carragher asked Sancho about it.

It’s the admission remix.
The big news on Friday is obviously Ten Hag’s interview with Gary Neville, in which a wide range of topics were discussed but only one is really making the headlines:

‘Erik ten Hag reveals Manchester United tried to sign Harry Kane last summer’ – The Athletic.

‘Manchester United boss Erik ten Hag admits Rasmus Hojlund was his SECOND choice striker transfer in brutally honest interview’ – The sun website.

‘Erik ten Hag admits Man United ‘failed to land’ their number one target Harry Kane and turned to £72m Rasmus Hojlund as second option’ – online mail.

‘Erik ten Hag has Harry Kane transferred to Man Utd as £72m Rasmus Hojlund is backed to become a 30-goal star for the Red Devils’ – Goal.com.

Even sky sports They themselves say: “Erik ten Hag reveals he wanted to sign Harry Kane last summer.”

And all this leaves Mediawatch with only one question: can they ‘reveal’ or ‘admit’ in May something that was already public knowledge the previous June? Everyone knew that Ten Hag would have preferred to sign Kane. Everyone reported that Ten Hag would have preferred to sign Kane. Everyone reported the countless reasons why Ten Hag was unable to sign Kane, leading Manchester United to focus on signing Hojlund.

It was a good line. But it was neither an admission nor a revelation; We found out almost a year ago.

Shock and bull story
Regarding the issue of Ten Hag, this is nonsense from the point of view The sun website:

Under-pressure Manchester United manager Erik ten Hag is ‘discussed’ by Bayern Munich to replace outgoing Tuchel

An obviously talented coach with experience coaching big European clubs in continental competitions, who was once in charge of Bayern Munich’s reserve team for two years, being considered as a possible option to become Bayern Munich coach? It’s a kind of “shock”.

Ralf Rangnick literally rejected them this week. Ten Hag is not the most shocking Manchester United name linked with Bayern in the last 24 hours.

Monarch of the glen
this of the Daily Mirror website It’s quite something:

Arne Slot warned that he will have only two weeks to win over Liverpool’s stars after the departure of Jurgen Klopp

And this “warning” comes from Glen Johnson, so we know it’s totally legitimate and should be taken completely seriously. But what did he really say?

It’s important that you have the kids on your side.

Okay, Glen.

You need to get their attention, get them to believe as soon as possible.

I have absolutely nailed it so far.

Because if you don’t get it in four weeks, it’s not going to work, maybe even less, maybe two weeks.

I’m starting to feel like you’re crunching the numbers, man.

They are great characters. If you lose the locker room in the first four weeks, it’s over.

Mediawatch would suggest that if any manager loses the dressing room at any point, it’s probably over. Not just at this completely random and arbitrary mark of four or two weeks.

The players have to respect him and naturally they will, they are all good guys.

Consider yourself warned, Arne. Give up now and save everyone the trouble.

Training Spotting
Jurgen Klopp is still at Liverpool, of course, hanging around like a smiling weirdo.

We know this because it is one of the ‘5 things we saw in Liverpool training’ that the Daily Mirror website has graciously granted to the world.

The first is that Mo Salah “had a concentrated look”, which is a way of saying that he was neither laughing nor crying. The man stands motionless with his hands on his hips. Centered.

Secondly, Klopp is “all smiles”, which is just phenomenal sensationalism.

Third, Conor Bradley was “pictured participating” in the training. And that has been “detected” in his subscription to Getty Images.

Fourthly, Virgil van Dijk was not in the photo participating, which was somehow also “detected”.

And they save the best for last with the fifth detail: Pep Lijnders “appeared giving a sermon to the side, constantly pointing to his head.”

It all begs the eternal question: why can’t Reach make a subscription model work?
