Jadon Sancho Trains Separately Amid Manchester United Squad Discipline Issue

Manchester United’s Jadon Sancho finds himself in a challenging situation as he is set to train separately from his teammates, according to an official statement released by the club. The 23-year-old winger appears to have fallen out of favor with manager Erik ten Hag, who cited concerns about Sancho’s training performances as the reason behind this decision. In response, Sancho has taken to social media to defend his professionalism.

The news of Sancho’s solitary training sessions was confirmed by the club in an announcement made on Thursday afternoon. The statement indicated, “Jadon Sancho will remain on a personal training programme away from the first-team group, pending resolution of a squad discipline issue.”

The situation began when manager Erik ten Hag publicly revealed that Sancho was omitted from the squad for the recent 3-1 defeat to Arsenal due to his subpar showings on the training pitch. Ten Hag explained, “Jadon, on his performance in training, was not selected. You have to reach a level at Manchester United every day, and we can make choices in the front line. So for this game, he was not selected.”

In response to his manager’s comments, Sancho took to social media to address the situation and refute any negative perceptions about his professionalism. He 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’ve been a scapegoat for a long time, which isn’t fair!”

Sancho emphasized his dedication to the club and his desire to contribute positively. He acknowledged the challenges of playing for Manchester United but expressed his commitment to fighting for the club’s badge.

Jadon Sancho, who arrived at Manchester United with great expectations and a £73 million price tag from Borussia Dortmund two years ago, has faced challenges in meeting the high expectations. To date, he has scored 12 goals in 82 appearances for the club.

As Manchester United prepares for their upcoming fixture against Brighton on Saturday, the situation surrounding Sancho’s role within the squad remains uncertain. Fans and observers will be keenly watching how this situation unfolds and its impact on the player’s future at the club.
