Jadon Sancho is ‘strolling through life’ during Man United struggles, says club legend



| Last Updated:


Jadon Sancho has been accused of ‘strolling through life’ whilst Manchester United battle through a difficult period on the pitch this season.

The Reds currently reside in sixth place in the Premier League and have been knocked out of Europe following their last-place finish in their Champions League group.

Erik ten Hag has found major difficulties throughout his second season in charge at Old Trafford, both on and off the pitch.

Sancho’s exile has been one issue that is still yet to be resolved. After publicly accusing the manager of ‘scapegoating’ him following being dropped from the squad against Arsenal, the 23-year-old winger has been removed from the squad.

Ten Hag ordered Sancho to apologise for his reaction, but the only thing the former Borussia Dortmund man did was delete the post online. That was almost four months ago now.

United have not been in good form and, in particular, their frontline has been misfiring. Last time out against Aston Villa was the first time a United forward player scored at Old Trafford in the Premier League this season.

Sancho was the last to do so. But he is not budging in his dispute with the manager. Instead, he is seemingly awaiting his exit from the club. “I will continue to fight for this badge no matter what,” is the line Sancho ended his statement with in September.

Dwight Yorke, a man who won the Treble at United, has urged the club to resolve this situation as soon as possible and accused Sancho of ‘strolling through life’ whilst his Manchester United teammates are attempting to turn things around at Old Trafford.

“Man United are going through a tough spell right now, and they shouldn’t have to deal with the Sancho situation on top of it,” Yorke told

“The manager has to sort those situations out, and he needs to do what he needs to do to make sure he saves his own back and is not embarrassed.

“The club needs to sort this out one way or another. It’ll continue to manifest if nothing is done, as Sancho will still be mates with some players. I would manage that situation differently.

“I have been a player, and I know how things work in the dressing room. Those players will be laughing and joking with Sancho every day – I used to do that when I was a player.

“Situations like this aren’t good for morale, though. The players will be trying their best to get results, but Sancho will be strolling through life. That’s just how I see it.”
