Erik ten Hag is convinced he can help Manchester United duo Marcus Rashford and Jadon Sancho rediscover their very best form.

Last season was Rashford’s worst at United, the forward managing just five goals from 32 appearances and losing his England place in the process. Sancho endured a tough first season at United, following his much-vaunted £75million move from Borussia Dortmund, with five goals from 38 games.
Like Rashford, Sancho was not in Gareth Southgate’s last England squad and both players are desperate to force their way back in time for the World Cup this winter. Rashford and Sancho were on the scoresheet in United’s 2-1 win over arch-rivals Liverpool on Monday, with Ten Hag excited by what the pair can offer in attack.
Ten Hag gained a reputation for nurturing and developing young players at Ajax and he believes he can do the same for Rashford, 24, and Sancho, 22. “I will give my 100 per cent for that, but we have to work hard,” said Ten Hag.
“I have to work hard with my players, I’m confident that they can do it, now they have to believe that as well. You see it when you bring it on the pitch and you can see the impact they can have.
“I was really happy that they scored the two goals, because I hoped that it will give them the push that they can do the hard work and contribute in defending and pressing, but also contribute to creating chances and taking chances, which is what they are really good at. It’s about when they believe that they will do it.”
