Manchester United confirm that Sancho will be training on his own for disciplinary reasons

Manchester United have announced that Jadon Sancho will undergo training separate from the first-team squad for a period.

This decision comes after the England international posted his dissatisfaction with his treatment on social media.

Sancho asserted that he had been unfairly singled out as a “scapegoat” following manager Erik ten Hag’s decision to omit him from the squad for the game against Arsenal on September 3 due to his subpar performance in training. United has confirmed that this issue is now being regarded as a disciplinary matter.

A statement from the club read: “Jadon Sancho will remain on a personal training programme away from the first-team group, pending resolution of a squad discipline issue.”

Sancho had responded aggressively to Ten Hag’s remarks following United’s 3-1 loss at the Emirates Stadium. Ten Hag had stated that the 23-year-old was left out of the squad because he had not met the performance standards anticipated of him.

“Jadon, on his performances in training we did not select him,” the Dutchman said. “You have to reach a level every day at Manchester United and we can make choices in the front line. So for this game he was not selected.”

Sancho responded later that day with an explosive statement on Twitter.

He wrote: “Please don’t believe everything you read! I will not allow people saying things that is completely untrue, I have conducted myself in training very well this week.

“I believe there are other reasons for this matter that I won’t go into, I’ve been a scapegoat for a long time which isn’t fair!”
