Manchester United players are said to be “fed up” with Jadon Sancho after his reaction to Erik ten Hag’s post-Arsenal comments.

After Manchester United suffered a 3-1 defeat to Arsenal, Erik ten Hag revealed that Jadon Sancho was not in the squad due to poor training levels.

“On his performance in training, we didn’t select him,” Ten Hag said. “You have to reach the level every day at Manchester United. You can make choices in the front line, so in this game, he wasn’t selected.”

Subsequently, Sancho released a statement claiming that he has often been “scapegoated”, claiming that his training levels have been just fine and that there are other reasons for his exclusion from the squad.

This subject has been one that has caused much debate online and, according to Mark Ogden of ESPN, the United dressing room has “had enough” of Sancho.

Ogden describes how one source says there is little sympathy for Sancho inside the current dressing room, with the players supporting Ten Hag’s firm stance.

Ogden explains that Sancho is currently battling to regain the trust and support of both Ten Hag and his fellow squad members, with Sancho’s statement having “gone down badly” with the team.

The team is said to respect Ten Hag’s choices as they believe his form of discipline applies to the squad regardless of status, and Sancho just happens to be the latest to step out of line under the Dutchman.
