Erik ten Hag has seemingly got his way yet again over the rather public saga with Jadon Sancho with the English winger banished to train away from the first team.

United released a statement yesterday, a rather short statement it has to be said, which said that the former Borussia Dortmund man was being made to train away from the first team due to squad disciplinary issues.

The Englishman’s rather public rebuttal to Erik ten Hag’s comments, which have now been deleted, caused a stir and there was seemingly no resolution in sight for the pair.

The question has been, since the fallout, just who is in the right. The majority of the United fanbase have seemingly sided with the Dutch manager and rightly so, but not all agree with that assessment.

Pundit on Sancho

Speaking on TalkSport, former Aston Villa striker Gabby Agbonlahor has taken issue with how the former Ajax manager has dealt with the situation.

“Why can’t you sit down with Sancho and stop acting like a school teacher,” Agbonlahor said. ” Ten Hag isn’t blessed with many options and United do need Sancho.

“I’ve been sent to the under-18s before and it’s very demoralising. What are United going to get out of Sancho training on his own.”

Is Agbonlahor right

One thing that the former Villa striker is seemingly forgetting is that Sancho, who was bought for £73 million two years ago, has just not imposed himself onto enough games for the Red Devils.

He has struggled for consistency, too. Yes, United seemingly need all the options they can get on the right-hand side but Sancho has had his chance.

Facundo Pellistri has certainly had to wait for his chance and, following his cameos off the bench, certainly deserves a start against Roberto De Zerbi’s Brighton.

Sancho’s future is seemingly away from Old Trafford unless there is some sort of resolution over the next few weeks. But, an apology from the winger is seemingly not forthcoming.
