Manchester United have announced that Jadon Sancho won’t be involved in the first-team for the foreseeable future after his spat with Erik ten Hag.

Jadon Sancho publicly hit out at Erik ten Hag in a social media post following the Arsenal game nearly two weeks ago.

Ten Hag had in his post game press conference explained that Sancho’s exclusion was due to his poor training performance.

Sancho disagreed with his manager which has resulted in weeks of speculation, ended with Manchester United releasing a statement.

They wrote: “Jadon Sancho will remain on a personal training programme away from the first-team group, pending resolution of a squad discipline issue.”

The result has left fans in shock of what they are seeing, as they all share their views.

Jadon Sancho out in the cold

With Sancho now out in the cold at Old Trafford, it is difficult to see a way back for him under Ten Hag.

One fan posting on X assumes that the English international’s time at the club is now over: “That might be the end of Jadon Sancho at Manchester United.”

This was shared by another fan who admitted: “Hard to see a way back for him now.”

Another fan questioned why Sancho can’t get his head down and work: “The lad is on £300k a week, just turn up on time, train hard and earn the money you’re being paid by the club.”

A club fan account made it’s call for the player in line to benefit from United’s right-wing upheaval: “Antony and Sancho both out of the team. It’s Facundo [Pellistri] time, and I’m hoping he grabs this massive opportunity with both hands.”

Pellistri handed massive unforeseen opportunity

Going into this season we all expected Facundo Pellistri to breakout into a first-team regular.

However even his biggest fan was aware there was probably two or three players ahead of him in the pecking order.

Now though through unforeseeable circumstances he finds himself as the club’s only natural right-wing player.

While Bruno Fernandes, Alejandro Garnacho and Mason Mount are all options here, clearly Ten Hag is a fan of Pellistri so it’s time to trust him with some starts.
