“Banned from mixing with Man Utd teammates” as the disagreement with Erik ten Hag continues Jadon Sancho trains alone following his fallout with manager Erik ten Hag, with the England winger sticking to a tight set of regulations while the United manager waits for an apology for publicly criticising him.
In the event that the situation is not resolved in January, Borussia Dortmund is one of the places that could serve as a landing spot.
It has been alleged that Jadon Sancho’s manager at Manchester United, Erik ten Hag, has banned him from eating and preventing him from socialising with his teammates as part of Sancho’s banishment from the first squad.
After publicly accusing Ten Hag of using him as a “scapegoat” without giving an apology, Sancho was expelled from United’s training group about halfway through the month of September.
The Dutchman criticised Sancho’s performance in training after he was omitted from the United team to play Arsenal and told reporters, “On his performance on training we didn’t select him.” This came after United suffered a 3-1 defeat at the hands of Arsenal. At Manchester United, you are expected to perform at the absolute highest level on a daily basis. Because of the importance of having decisive players on the front line, he did not get picked for this game.
Sancho, who is now 23 years old, has not been seen donning a United shirt since the incident. Sancho will not be allowed to return to the team by Ten Hag until he issues a sincere apology for the inappropriate behaviour he displayed on social media.
According to the Daily Mail, Ten Hag has reportedly provided Sancho with a severe set of rules, one of which requires him to eat away from his teammates and refrain from interacting with them at the Carrington training facility that the club uses. Even though he trains by himself, he makes use of the same facilities as the young players at United’s academy.
Ten Hag has stated that a future reintegration “depends” on Sancho’s desire to apologise for his acts, despite the fact that the fallout has been going on for more than six weeks. This is because the fallout has been continuing on because of Sancho’s actions. The winger for England has not demonstrated any feeling of regret for his actions.
Sancho has expressed interest in playing for his previous club, Borussia Dortmund, who are ready to welcome him back to the Bundesliga after a two-year hiatus. 90min is aware of this interest on Sancho’s part.
After making the decision to leave Manchester City when he was only 17, Sancho spent the next four years in Germany, where he played 104 games and scored 38 goals in the Bundesliga. This helped him establish himself as one of the most promising young wingers in Europe.
United finally came to an agreement with Dortmund in July 2021 to pay €85 million (or £73 million) for the transfer of Sancho after seeking his signature over a period of two years and initially looking to acquire him in order to fill the void on the right wing. However, after spending the majority of his time at BVB playing on the opposite flank, Sancho instantly found himself in a rivalry with Marcus Rashford for a starting place. Sancho hasn’t been able to secure a regular starting berth with the first team and has struggled to compete with Rashford.
Since the postponed final of the Euro 2020 tournament at Wembley, where Sancho entered the game as a second-half replacement and missed a penalty against Italy, his career on the international stage has come to a standstill. As a direct consequence of this, England manager Gareth Southgate no longer thinks highly of Sancho.
