Sancho's Manchester United Future in Limbo as Ten Hag Takes a Stand
Erik ten Hag has addressed the ongoing predicament involving Jadon Sancho, emphasizing that the resolution lies squarely in the hands of the winger.
Sancho, who has been conspicuously absent from the first-team lineup, notably did not make the squad for the match against Burnley. This exclusion is a direct consequence of his outspoken social media post against Ten Hag, which resulted in his training away from the main squad. Despite deleting the post, Sancho has refrained from apologizing to the manager, leaving his future at Manchester United uncertain.
Ten Hag's recent statement underscores the pivotal role Sancho must play in resolving this impasse. The manager firmly stated that Sancho's inclusion in the squad for upcoming matches hinges solely on the player's attitude adjustment. As of now, he has been excluded from the squad set to face Burnley, but whether he will don the United jersey again remains unclear.
In the broader context, while Sancho and Antony continue to be sidelined for non-sporting reasons, Ten Hag has found solace in the return of several key players. The imminent comebacks of loan signing Sofyan Amrabat, midfielder Mason Mount, and defenders Harry Maguire and Raphael Varane, who are recovering from injuries, provide a glimmer of hope as they near full fitness and may even feature off the bench against Burnley.
