Manchester United manager Erik ten Hag has confirmed that both Jadon Sancho and Anthony Martial will return to the squad for Wednesday night’s game against Nottingham Forest.
Ten Hag confirmed to club media ahead of pre-match press conference that United still have ‘some issues’ regarding fitness before the game.
“I think that Anthony Martial and Jadon Sancho will return in the game squad, but Scott McTominay will still be absent” the United boss explained.
Ten Hag explained at the time that the £73m signing was ‘not fit enough’ to be included, suggesting that Sancho had also been struggling mentally.
Sancho was still building up his fitness last week for the first leg against Forest and missed out then.
Ten Hag has been a big supporter of the Frenchman this season, but a myriad of fitness issues have limited him to only 13 appearances in all competitions and no action at all since coming off at half-time in the victorious Manchester derby two and a half weeks ago.
The more he plays, the more it will come,” Ten Hag said of his compatriot at Tuesday’s press conference.
