Jadon Sancho has deactivated his Instagram account after being dropped from the Manchester United squad by the manager, Erik ten Hag. The English midfielder has been training with the academy players since his public spat with the Dutch manager over the omission from the squad for a Premier League match against Arsenal.
Eagle-eyed fans noticed that the English midfielder has deactivated his Instagram account, which has started the speculation that Sancho wants to stay away from the public eye amidst all this debacle in Manchester.

It is noteworthy that Sancho’s profile on X is still active at the time of this report. On X, Sancho uploaded a response to Erik ten Hag, back in September, claiming he has been used as a ‘scapegoat’ by the manager.
The relationship between the duo has been getting worse in the last few weeks, despite Sancho deleting the initial comments from his profile on X. Earlier reports pointed that the internal meeting between the player and manager was a failure and the club might look to offload the midfielder in the upcoming winter transfer window.

The midfielder has been forced to train away from the first-team squad with manager, Erik ten Hag, demanding a public apology from the midfielder. The Telegraph later reported that Sancho claims that he has been subjected to double standards within the club and points to notable inconsistencies in the application of certain rules by Erik ten Hag in his case, as compared to his teammates.
Jadon Sancho has been exiled from all first-team facilities at Manchester United
At present, Sancho has been exiled from all first-team facilities at Manchester United, including the team dining room. Erik ten Hag has made sure that the English midfielder remains away from the first team by forcing the midfielder to eat alongside academy players.
The Mirror reports that the situation between the player and the manager has reached an “impasse,” with a public apology as the only way back for the winger. Meanwhile, the right-wing position is up for grabs at Manchester United as the Brazilian winger, Antony, was also removed from the squad the following the allegation of domestic abuse.
Facundo Pellistri and Alejandro Garnacho are the best options available for Manchester United at the moment unless they make an emergency signing of a free agent. In the latest outing against Burnley in the Premier League, Erik ten Hag opted for a 4-2-3-1 formation, playing captain Bruno Fernandes on the right side of the front four.

Fernandes scored the winner against Burnley to put an end to a three-match losing streak for the Manchester club. They currently sit at the ninth position at the table with nine points while league leaders Manchester City ate already at 18 points.
Manchester United will now turn their focus to a midweek fixture against Crystal Palace in the EFL club at home to Old Trafford following a car crash of Marcus Rashford earlier this week. All eyes will be on Erik ten Hag to observe his new makeshift lineup amidst all these problems with key attackers.
