While these issues can’t solely account for their worst start to a campaign since 1989, the ongoing question of whether the Glazers will sell the club has been far from a pleasant distraction.

Additionally, a feud between the club’s Dutch coach and Jadon Sancho emerged following a post-match exchange of words following a defeat to Arsenal.

Subsequent to that game, the Red Devils have experienced mixed results, with four losses and three wins in their fixtures.

The current international break offers a timely opportunity for Ten Hag to revitalize his squad and reverse their fortunes.

Yet, resolving the issue of a disjointed squad, particularly in attack, remains a formidable challenge.

Marcus Rashford, who enjoyed a sensational 2022/23 season, has only scored once this season. The rest of their forward line has also struggled, with Casemiro being their top scorer with just four goals. This situation underscores the depth of their attacking woes.

Jadon Sancho, in particular, must be perplexed as he finds himself on the sidelines, seemingly sidelined to play virtual football (EA FC 24) rather than actual matches.

Sancho’s time in Manchester has been one of disappointment, despite his high-profile £73 million transfer from Borussia Dortmund.

Once considered one of the most exciting young talents in the country, his situation has taken a stark turn.

Sancho has not seen any action since a substitute appearance against Nottingham Forest in late August. Ten Hag pointed to his ‘performance in training’ as the reason behind his absence.

In response, the England international candidly suggested he had become a scapegoat. However, this statement may ultimately signal the conclusion of his career at Manchester United.

He has played a mere 77 minutes of league football this season, after starting in the top flight on just 21 occasions last season, amassing six goals and three assists.
