Manchester United has announced that winger Jadon Sancho, who is currently out of favor with the team, will be training separately from the rest of the first-team squad.
This decision comes after Sancho expressed his dissatisfaction with manager Erik ten Hag’s treatment of him on social media.
Sancho accused the Dutch coach of making him a “scapegoat” and dropping him from the match-day squad for their recent defeat against Arsenal.
In response, United stated that the matter is now being treated as a disciplinary issue and that Sancho will be on a personal training program until it is resolved.
Meanwhile, defender Harry Maguire, who has also faced criticism recently, may still be involved in the upcoming match against Brighton.
Despite scoring an own goal in England’s victory over Scotland, Maguire has received negative and abusive comments from fans, pundits, and the media.
His mother, Zoe Maguire-Wilkinson, took to Instagram to defend him and express her disapproval of the treatment he has been receiving.
She emphasized the need for respect and support in the football world, particularly for young players.
