Jadon Sancho has removed a social media post in response to Manchester United manager Erik ten Hag’s criticism of his training performances.
Sancho was left out of the United squad for their 3-1 Premier League loss to Arsenal, with Ten Hag attributing his absence to subpar training displays.
In retaliation, the England international initially posted a message on social media accusing his manager of making him a ‘scapegoat’ for the team’s poor start to the season.
This post remained at the top of his profile for over a week, creating tension between him and the manager.
However, on Tuesday evening, Sancho deleted the post, indicating a possible attempt to resolve the dispute and regain his place in the first team.
Ten Hag has faced criticism for handling the situation publicly, with some suggesting he should have addressed Sancho’s conduct privately.
Sancho was linked with a potential last-minute move to the Saudi Pro League, but he ultimately stayed at Old Trafford, reportedly due to United’s insistence on a compulsory purchase clause in any loan deal.
Sancho was spotted at United’s training ground for talks with Ten Hag on Monday.
United did not confirm whether he had trained with the team when contacted by GOAL.
With Antony on leave due to serious allegations of assault (which he denies), a spot on the right wing has opened up, potentially giving Sancho an opportunity to redeem himself.
Ten Hag is expected to discuss the situation in his upcoming press conference on Friday. If the manager and player can resolve their differences, Sancho may return to action against Brighton in the Premier League on Saturday.
