Manchester United manager, Erik ten Hag has said Jadon Sancho has to overcome “physical and mental” issues before he returns to the squad.
Sancho hasn’t played for the Red Devils since October.
The 22-year-old missed United’s training camp in Spain during the 2022 World Cup and travelled to the Netherlands to undertake an individual training programme.
Although Sancho is back in the UK, Ten Hag insists the player is not fit yet.
“At this moment he is not fit enough. It’s physical, but physical is also the connection with mental.
“But I think he is now making good progress on the physical part and that will help him. I hope he can return quickly but I can’t say a duration of how long it will be,” Ten Hag told a news conference on Thursday
