Jadon Sancho’s Man United exclusion comes after ‘refusal to apologise’ to Erik ten Hag

A fresh insight into the ongoing feud between Manchester United star Jadon Sancho, and head coach Erik ten Hag, has been provided on Thursday evening.

The info comes courtesy of the reliable outlet The Athletic, who have confirmed that no resolution appears to be in sight.

Sancho and Ten Hag, of course, are currently in the midst of a public fallout, after Sancho issued a scathing social media statement, accusing his manager of scapegoating him on the back of United’s recent Premier League defeat at the hands of Arsenal.

The England international, ultimately, deleted his post, with the assumption, in turn, having been that Sancho and Ten Hag were working towards mending their relationship.

The latest word stemming from the media, however, points towards quite the opposite.

After it was earlier revealed that Sancho was being forced to train separately from the rest of Man United’s first-team squad, The Athletic moved to shed further light on the situation.

The former Borussia Dortmund standout’s exclusion comes, it is alleged, owing to his refusal to directly apologise to Erik ten Hag.

‘Jadon Sancho is training away from the Manchester United first team after he refused to apologise to manager Erik ten Hag, The Athletic can reveal.’

It is added that:

‘The 23-year-old will now work away from team-mates at United’s academy facilities as the club look to resolve what they refer to as “a squad discipline issue.’
