Jadon Sancho Banished from Training At Manchester United Training Ground Following His Issue with Erik ten Hag

Sancho’s Training Critique and Social Media Response

Ten Hag’s Accusations and Sancho’s Social Media Defense

The 23-year-old winger, Jadon Sancho, found himself in the midst of a training controversy when Ajax’s manager, Ten Hag, accused him of lacking effort during training sessions, particularly following a recent defeat to Arsenal. In response, Sancho took to social media to offer an impromptu rebuttal aimed at Manchester United’s boss.

United’s Disciplinary Action

Manchester United has taken disciplinary action against Sancho in light of the situation. As a result, he will be working away from the first-team squad during this period. The club issued a statement stating, “Jadon Sancho will remain on a personal training programme away from the first-team group, pending resolution of a squad discipline issue.”

Absentees for United’s Upcoming Match

This weekend, Manchester United faces Brighton in the Premier League, but the team will be without several key senior players. Antony has been granted leave of absence due to personal life-related allegations, while Mason Mount, Raphael Varane, and several others are sidelined with injuries.

Sancho’s Promising Pre-Season and Subsequent Omission

Sancho’s pre-season performances had seemingly earned him a place in Ten Hag’s plans, as he was deployed as a false nine, a position United had been looking to fill. He even made substitute appearances in the first three games of the season. However, he was notably absent from the squad in the final game before the international break.

United’s Confirmation of the Decision

Manchester United officially confirmed their decision regarding Sancho after he was spotted arriving at their Carrington training ground. Ten Hag’s remarks about Sancho’s training performances factored into the club’s choice. The Dutch manager explained, “Jadon, on his performances in training we did not select him. You have to reach a level every day at Manchester United, and we can make choices in the front line. So for this game, he was not selected.”

Sancho’s Social Media Response

Frustrated by the criticism, Sancho took to social media to defend himself. In a post, he vehemently denied being a “scapegoat” for the team’s 3-1 loss to Arsenal. Sancho stated, “Please don’t believe everything you read! I will not allow people saying things that are 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 have been a scapegoat for a long time which isn’t fair! All I want to do is play football with a smile on my face and contribute to my team. 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. I will continue to fight for this badge no matter what!”
