Manchester United manager Erik ten Hag has reportedly ended club’s winger Jadon Sancho’s career at Old Trafford. There has been news of a spat between both the player and manager in recent days.
According to journalist Fabrizio Romano, the Dutch manager has clearly sent a message to Sancho that his journey with the Red Devils is over already. In a recent interview, ten Hag was questioned about Sancho’s availability in the club’s next game.
The manager was however very uncertain about the player’s future. He said, “I don’t know. He is not available, so at this moment, he is not important, because he can’t contribute. The players who are there and available deserve me. I have to guide them, I have to prepare them. I only focus on the players who are available.”
The former Ajax manager then concluded as he said, “With fans, it’s the talk, with you it’s the talk, but with the players, it is not the talk. They want to perform. For players who didn’t have so many opportunities, it’s a chance to come into the team.”
Tension seems to be rising inside Man United’s dressing room ever since the English winger speculated that his lack of game time was due to something else and not because of some disciplinary problems at the problems. He said he was being made the scapegoat for a long time.
Earlier this week, however, the player removed the “scapegoat” post he made on social media after a meeting with the manager. But it now seems that Sancho’s chance of getting back to the team is getting slim with each passing day.

ten Hag has hinted that Sancho will not feature in the match against Brighton. The Brazilian winger Antony absent due to the ongoing physical assault and abuse case against him is currently under investigation. It is now to be seen if ten Hag uses Sancho in any of the next games. Or is it really all over for the star at Manchester United?
Manchester United star Jadon Sancho set to train alone following the spat with manager Erik ten Hag
Manchester United has released an official statement where they mentioned that Jadon Sancho is set to practice on his own. This is officially due to the ongoing feud between him and club manager Erik ten Hag.
The club released an official statement regarding the English winger where they mentioned that he will train by himself. The statement read, “Jadon Sancho will remain on a personal training program away from the first-team group, pending resolution of a squad discipline issue.“
The player is to be training alone until issues with manager Erik ten Hag are resolved. The manager left Sancho out of his squad for the loss at Arsenal earlier this month. He said that the winger’s training performances had been below standard due to which he was left out of the squad.

Sancho moved to Old Trafford from the German side Borussia Dortmund for around $90 million in 2021. But the player has struggled to show consistency in the English club. He has so far scored only nine goals and provided just six assists in his 58 Premier League appearances.
