Man United player describes how the squad responded to Jadon Sancho’s message

Victor Lindelof maintains the Manchester United squad is ‘calm’ despite the public disagreement between head coach Erik ten Hag and teammate Jadon Sancho regarding training levels.

The Sweden captain, speaking prior to his country’s Euro 2024 qualifier against Estonia, characterized the dressing room as tight and claimed that despite the club’s poor start to the season, there is still a positive atmosphere.

Sancho issued a statement on social media defending his training levels and claiming he has been made a scapegoat just hours after Ten Hag revealed why the player was left off the squad for Sunday’s 3-1 loss to Arsenal.

The Manchester Evening News is aware that Ten Hag maintains his stance. Lindelof has now revealed his views on the situation and emphasized that it has not caused discord within the team.

“I believe… In a club like United, there has always been and always will be a great deal published about them. According to Sport Bladet, “no matter what happens, they try to make it as big as possible and it makes headlines.” “However, for us athletes, it is quiet.

“Of course, we’ve played four games and received two marginally worse results, but we’re not too concerned about it. We are a close-knit group with a positive vibe. This is the case when playing at the utmost level. There will always be individuals who desire to like and write, among other activities. For my part, however, it has been peaceful.”

Lindelof stated in March that he would evaluate his future during the summer due to his non-starter status under Ten Hag.

However, the 29-year-old, who was regarded the club’s third-best central defender behind Lisandro Martinez and Raphael Varane but ahead of Harry Maguire, stated that he would not be leaving the club.

When asked how close he was to leaving United, Lindelof responded, “It was not even close. I still have a contract with the club [until 2024].”

The central defender was replaced in the second half of the loss to Arsenal due to illness, but he started Saturday’s match against Estonia.
