EPL: Man Utd Banish Top Player from First-Team Training
September 14, 2023
Jadon Sancho has been ordered to train away from Manchester United’s first team on a “personal training programme” pending a resolution of a “squad discipline issue.”
This was confirmed in an official statement on Thursday.
United manager Erik ten Hag dropped Sancho from his matchday squad for the trip to Arsenal on September 3.
After the match, Ten Hag explained that he took the decision due to the player’s poor attitude in training.
However, later the same day, Sancho took to social media to claim he had been “a scapegoat for a long time” and said Ten Hag’s claims were “completely untrue.”
This is not the first time the 23-year-old has been excluded from United training under Ten Hag, with the winger undergoing an individual fitness programme in the Netherlands last season that saw him watch the World Cup from afar.
