Sancho will remain on a personal training programme away from the first-team group, pending resolution of a squad discipline issue.
Man United manager Erik ten Hag now wants Jadon Sancho to apologise for his social media outburst before allowing the Englishman to return to first-team training.
The former Ajax manager opted to leave him out of United’s squad for the defeat at Arsenal. Following Ten Hag’s public explanation about Sancho’s absence, the England international went to social media and criticised his boss. He made a claim that he had been made “a scapegoat for a long time” and that the Dutchman’s claims were “completely untrue”.
Sancho deleted his social media post on Tuesday and was also linked with a surprise loan move to Saudi Arabia in the final few days of the transfer window, but he ultimately stayed put at Old Trafford and allegedly held ‘clear-the-air talks’ with Ten Hag during the international break.
Man United have since released a statement on their official website that Sancho will remain on a personal training programme away from the first-team group, pending resolution of a squad discipline issue.
As per the Sky Sports News, Ten Hag is waiting for Sancho to apologise to him and the club for his actions before allowing the winger to re-join the first-team group in training.
The Athletic adds that Sancho has been banished from senior training after refusing to apologise to Ten Hag and he will not be considered for selection, starting with Saturday’s Premier League home match against Brighton & Hove Albion.
