Manchester United will reportedly "stick with" Jadon Sancho despite his poor run of form this season.
He has managed just one assist in 14 appearances this season and to combat his struggles, Ten Hag 'recommended' he train with a specialist coach in the Netherlands during the World Cup.
Meanwhile, England boss Gareth Southgate left Sancho out of the 26-man World Cup squad earlier this month.
"From what I'm told..."
There has been speculation over Sancho's future at United but transfer insider, Dean Jones, claims the winger will be given time to turn his form around.
“If United did seriously look to sign someone in Sancho’s position, then it obviously would throw his future into doubt," Jones said speaking to GiveMeSport.
“We all know he’s had an up and down season, but from what I’m told, United are sticking with him for now and hope that in the second half of the season, he can come good.”
Speaking about Sancho earlier in the year, Ten Hag said: “It [the goal] was not what I wasn’t happy with, it was the movement with our ball.
“The width on the left side, for me, was no good first-half – the movement from behind the defending line.”
It is worth remembering that Sancho is only 22 years old and his career is far from over.
