Jayden Sancho hung his head.
Jadon Sancho has deleted his social media posts. “I’m a scapegoat,” he wrote, in direct contradiction to Manchester United manager Eric ten Haag’s claim that he left him out of the squad because he was not performing well in training.
On April 4 (ET), Mourinho left Sancho out of the squad for the game against Arsenal. Van Gaal had strong words for Sancho.
He said there was something wrong with Sancho to not start him. “He was too poor in training. That’s why I didn’t play him,” he said. “If you want to play for United, you have to reach a certain level every day.”
Sancho hit back. “Please don’t believe everything you read,” he wrote on social media. I just can’t watch people say things that aren’t true. I did very well in training this week. I think there are other reasons why I’m not playing,” he said, adding, “I’ve been unfairly victimized for a long time. All I want is to play soccer with a smile on my face and contribute to the team.”
Sancho has since been linked with a move to Saudi Arabia. Al Etihad, managed by Steven Gerrard, have been linked with a loan deal for Sancho. However, the deal fell through when United refused to accept a £50 million bid for the player outright next summer.
A return to his hometown club Borussia Dortmund has also been linked. It has been suggested that Dortmund could make a move in the January transfer window next year if Sancho and Van Gaal do not reconcile.
During his time at Dortmund, Sancho dominated the German Bundesliga with 50 goals and 64 assists in 137 games. He was a winger with both speed and skill. He was also young, born in 2000.
After his move to United, he was disappointing. He only scored 12 goals in 82 games.
Last season, he struggled mentally and missed more than three months. His performances also fell far short of expectations.
Sancho hasn”t been called up by the England national team since October 2021. His value continued to decline.
This season, he’s been out of favor at United as well. He’s started all three of his Premier League games since the start of the season from the bench. 스포츠토토
In the meantime, he has lost his place in the team and the trust of his teammates. As ESPN reported on September 9, “United players are fed up with Sancho. Those around him are tired of his attitude and locker room issues. On the other hand, United manager Eric ten Haag is respected by the majority of the players. His philosophy is that there are no special exceptions for certain individuals. “The players like to be treated fairly.
Backed into a corner, Sancho eventually deleted his social media posts. It’s clear that he didn’t want to escalate the conflict with Ten Haag.
