Jadon Sancho, the Manchester United winger, has publicly disputed his manager’s decision to exclude him from the matchday squad for the game against Arsenal. Erik ten Hag, the Manchester United boss, had attributed the omission to Sancho’s performance in training.
In response, Sancho took to social media to express his disagreement with his manager’s assessment. He stated that he had conducted himself well in training and believed that there were other reasons behind his exclusion. Sancho also claimed to have been made a scapegoat in the past and expressed his desire to contribute to the team and play with a smile on his face.
Sancho has made appearances as a substitute in the first three Premier League matches of the season but was not selected for the game against Arsenal. While he still has three years left on his contract at Manchester United, it appears that his time at the club may be coming to an end.
In the past, Sancho has been linked with a potential move to Tottenham Hotspur, and earlier this year, Aston Villa had expressed interest in signing him. During his time at Manchester United, Sancho has scored 12 goals and provided six assists in 82 appearances.
