Jadon Sancho has been urged to apologize to Manchester United boss Erik ten Hag or face being kicked out of Old Trafford in January.
The player and manager have been at odds since Sancho hit back at Ten Hag’s claims that he was left out of the squad during Man United’s defeat at Arsenal on September 3 due to his lack of performance at home. ‘training.
Sancho has since been exiled from the first team, training with the under-18 team and is reportedly not even allowed to eat with his teammates at Man United’s Carrington training ground.
But talkSPORT understands an apology to Ten Hag would bring him back into the fold.
talkSPORT reported last month that Marcus Rashford was among Sancho’s teammates telling him to swallow his pride and apologize to the Dutchman.
And that still appears to be the case, with the Guardian reporting that senior players are desperate for the striker to apologise.
However, talkSPORT reported last week that although they want Sancho to apologise, Man United players are ‘disgusted’ by Ten Hag’s treatment of the 23-year-old, as well as club legend Cristiano Ronaldo, who left the club for the second time in acrimonious circumstances last season.
If Sancho’s apology is not forthcoming, it appears the only option will be for him to be sold.
A return to Borussia Dortmund, who sold him for Man United for £73million in the summer of 2021, has been mooted.
Sancho burst onto the scene with the German club, recording 50 goals and 64 assists in 137 appearances for them. He produced a form that helped him break into the senior England team.
But his time at Old Trafford couldn’t have been more different, as he scored just 12 goals in 82 appearances for the Red Devils.
Sancho has not played for England since September 2021, two months after joining Man United.
