Manchester United winger Jadon Sancho has been axed from first-team training as the club deals with an ongoing discipline issue stemming from a recent social media outburst.
The incident comes after manager Erik ten Hag questioned Sancho’s commitment in training, prompting a heated response on various online platforms.
The rift began when Ten Hag omitted Sancho from the squad set to face Arsenal, citing subpar training performances.
However, Sancho staunchly refuted these claims in a now-deleted social media post.
The 23-year-old accused his manager of unfairly singling him out and deemed himself a ‘scapegoat’ for an extended period.
Following this meeting, the club issued a statement on their official website: “Jadon Sancho will remain on a personal training programme away from the first-team group, pending resolution of a squad discipline issue.”
This turn of events has left a cloud of uncertainty hanging over Sancho’s future at Old Trafford.
Chelsea and Al-Ettifaq expressed interest in the English winger during the recently closed transfer window.
It remains to be seen how this situation unfolds, but it is clear that the discord between Sancho and the club is far from resolved.
The club’s hierarchy faces the delicate task of managing this internal discord and ensuring it doesn’t disrupt the team’s overall performance in the upcoming matches.
