Jadon Sancho has been suspended from Manchester United’s first team squad after refusing to bow to Erik ten Hag’s demand for a public apology.
Sancho, 23, lashed out the manager on social media last week after Ten Hag implied he had been dropped from the team as a result of poor training performances. The England star branded the claims “untrue” before going on to say he had been made a “scapegoat” for too long.
Sancho finally removed his controversial social media post on Tuesday but there is still no resolution in his row with the manager as the player refuses to back down.
In a statement released on Thursday afternoon, United said: “Jadon Sancho will remain on a personal training programme away from the first team group pending resolution of a squad discipline issue.”
