Jadon Sancho will reportedly train away from Manchester United’s first-team until his misunderstanding with Erik ten Hag is resolved.
When Ten Hag was asked why he left out the Englishman, he revealed that the winger’s training performances had been below standard.
Manchester United released a statement saying that Sancho would be on a “personal training programme away from the first team”.
Regarding the outburst by Jadon Sancho, the Red Devils added that the decision was made “pending resolution of a squad discipline issue.”
Jadon Sancho was in the news a week after Antony went for international duties amid allegations of assaults by his former partner.
The Englishman signed for Manchester United from Borussia Dortmund for £73m in 2021 and has not performed as expected ever since.
He has struggled for consistency since he joined the Red Devils and has only bagged 9 goals and 6 assists in 58 appearances for the club.
Recall we also reported that Sancho spent three months dealing with physical and mental issues, and Ten Hag pointed out that he was not fit to play.
Jadon Sancho featured in the EFL Cup semi-final win against Nottingham Forest on 1 February and one week later, he helped United secure a 2-2 draw against Leeds United.
Ten Hag also spoke about the pride in “magnificent” Jadon Sancho in the aftermath, but the Englishman has performed below par since then.
The former Borussia Dortmund winger has just made three appearances as a substitute this season with United winning two and losing two of their opening four Premier League matches.
Jadon Malik Sancho is an English footballer who was born on 25th March, 2000 and plays as a winger for Manchester United and the England national team.
Sancho previously played for Watford and Manchester City but signed his first senior contract with Borussia Dortmund in 2017.
Jadon Sancho won his first trophy following the DFL-Supercup victory over Bayern Munich in the 2019/20 season.
The former Borussia Dortmund star was named runner-up in both the Golden Boy and Kopa Trophy awards in 2019.
The former Dortmund attacker then returned to England to sign for Manchester United in 2021.
Sancho was part of the England youth team that won the 2017 FIFA U-17 World Cup and made his debut for the senior team in 2018.
What Did Sancho Say?
Jadon Sancho claimed that he has been made a ‘scapegoat’ by Ten Hag after being excluded from the squad which faced Arsenal on Sunday, 3rd September 2023.
Ten Hag was inquired in the post-match interview about Sancho’s exclusion and he stated that the player has been poor in training.
Jadon Sancho said: “Please don’t believe everything you read! I will not allow people saying things that is completely untrue, I have conducted myself in training very well this week.”
“I believe there are other reasons for this matter that I won’t go into, I’ve been a scapegoat for a long time which isn’t fair!”
“I respect all decisions that are made by the coaching staff, I play with fantastic players and (am) grateful to do so which I know every week is a challenge.”
