Piers Morgan has once again hit out at Manchester United boss Erik ten Hag, claiming he ‘doesn’t know how to handle world class players’.

Morgan has repeatedly criticised Ten Hag following his controversial interview with Cristiano Ronaldo back in 2022, where he accused the Dutchman of not respecting him and attempting to force him out of the club.

Ronaldo’s contract was ultimately terminated by mutual consent a few weeks later and he ended up joining Saudi Pro League side Al-Nassr, where he has scored 52 goals in 58 appearances.

Jadon Sancho also had a falling out with Ten Hag, having publicly accused him of lying after the manager explained he did not select him for a game against Arsenal due to “his performances in training”.

As a result, Sancho was frozen out and returned to Borussia Dortmund on loan in January after refusing to apologise to Ten Hag. And the winger looks to be getting back to his best at Dortmund, having starred in the first leg of their 1-0 Champions League semi-final win over PSG.

Sancho made the most dribbles by an Englishman in Champions League history with 12, while the last person to complete more in a semi-final was Lionel Messi back in 2008. And in reaction to Sancho’s performance, Morgan took to social media to hit out at Ten Hag.

“The fact that Ronaldo and now Sancho are playing brilliantly away from United, and Rashford is struggling while still with them, suggests the real problem at the club isn’t ‘difficult’ world class players but a manager who doesn’t know how to handle them,” he wrote.

It remains to be seen what the future holds for Sancho, but former Scotland striker Ally McCoist believes the forward “has his mojo back” at Dortmund. McCoist told TNT Sports: “Sancho looks like a different player entirely.

“His body language is like the player Man Utd bought. You can tell a lot from body language and he wants to take people on and play. He certainly looks rejuvenated. It is confidence, he has his mojo back. He is in an environment where he is liked and he looks like a different footballer.”
