Popular journalist, Piers Morgan, has said that England international, Jadon Sancho, was ‘well within his rights’ to respond to manager, Erik ten Hag, claims about him.
The former Borussia Dortmund forward took exception to Ten Hag’s comments about poor performance in training, the winger took to social media to reply.

“I think if you’re Sancho and your manager has just come out and rinsed you in front of the world for not training properly, and you believe you did train properly, then I think you’re perfectly entitled to defend yourself,” he said.
“I don’t like any manager who spray-gun their players in public, I never have done. [Arsene] Wenger never did it, [Sir Alex] Ferguson never did it.
“The great managers don’t do this to their players, they keep it all in-house, this is again my issue with Ten Hag. It was my issue of how he treated [Cristiano] Ronaldo.
“I think there’s a problem with how people like Ten Hag manage his players, I think if they’re going to go public in criticising their players, they’re going to get what comes to them.
“And the players are going to say, ‘do you know what, I’m not having it,’ and I think Sancho is perfectly entitled to defend himself.”
