Ten hag reveal Why Mason Mount isn’t starting matches for Man Utd


Manchester United boss, Erik ten Hag has suggested that the form of other players has kept Mason Mount out of the side.

Ten Hag also said that Mount’s injury setback in September affected his ability to integrate into the Man United team.

Mount has featured mainly as a sub since returning from injury.

The England star is yet to score for his new club after 11 appearances with a string of underwhelming performances.

A muscle injury ruled him out for five games but since his return to fitness at the end of September, he has started just twice in the league.

Asked about Mount’s lack of starts, Ten Hag replied at a press conference on Friday ahead of his side’s Premier League tie with Luton Town this weekend: “He had some starts.

“Also recently, last week against Newcastle, but there are always reasons and sometimes, like the injury [at start of the season] and other players doing well, then you have to wait for your time to play.”

He added, “But he started the season, then he got injured, so that is the worst moment for a new player to get injured because it stops the integration process and that was a setback for us all. Now we have to find his place back
