- Manchester United star Jadon Sancho has returned to training at Carrington
- It comes after his spat with boss Erik ten Hag, who dropped him this month
- Ten Hag claimed it was due to his training displays, but Sancho hit back
Manchester United misfit Jadon Sancho has returned to training at Carrington after his feud with manager Erik ten Hag – who dropped him over his ‘training performance’ for their 3-1 loss to Arsenal earlier this month.
Sancho hit back at the Dutchman after his comments and claimed his words were ‘completely untrue’, saying he had been made to be a ‘scapegoat’ at Old Trafford during his difficult spell since his £73million move in 2021.
And after taking some time away from United during the international break, the 23-year-old winger has now been spotted back at the club ahead of their home game against Brighton on Saturday.
Sancho’s future at United looks in huge doubt after Ten Hag’s blunt words when explaining why the player was not involved in the defeat to the Gunners, saying: ‘Jadon, on his performances in training we did not select him.
‘You have to reach a level every day at Manchester United and we can make choices in the front line. So for this game he was not selected.’

Sancho immediately sought to clarify his comments, claiming they were ‘completely untrue’
‘Please don’t believe everything you read! I will not allow people saying things that is (sic) completely untrue, I have conducted myself in training very well this week.
‘I believe there are other reasons for this matter that I won’t go into, l’ve been a scapegoat for a long time which isn’t fair! ‘All I want to do is play football with a smile on my face and contribute to my team.
‘I respect all decisions that are made by the coaching staff, I play with fantastic players and (am) grateful to do so which I know every week is a challenge.
‘I will continue to fight for this badge no matter what!’
Sancho had been linked with a move to Saudi Arabia and Al-Ettifaq, with Steven Gerrard’s men making a move to sign him. However, the Saudi Pro League side refused to meet Sancho’s asking price, as revealed by Mail Sport.
