Jadon Sancho 'must move to Saudi Arabia or face season on the bench'
Jadon Sancho will be frozen out at Manchester United this season unless he finds an escape route in Saudi Arabia, according to Rio Ferdinand.
Sancho reacted to Erik ten Hags decision to drop him from Uniteds 3-1 defeat at Arsenal by effectively accusing his manager of lying. Ten Hag had said that Sancho was dropped owing to his performances in training.
The England winger a 73 million signing from Borussia Dortmund under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer described Ten Hags claims as completely untrue and that there were other reasons for his omission and that he had been made a scapegoat for a long time which isnt fair.
United were silent on Monday when asked if Sancho would now be the subject of disciplinary action and whether there would be an apology to Ten Hag, who had gone to great lengths last season to try to help the player rediscover his form and confidence.
The club described the situation as an internal matter and said they were not planning on saying anything beyond Ten Hags remarks.
But Ferdinand, the former United defender, believes Sancho will have to get used to life on the substitutes bench at Old Trafford this season unless he can get a move to Saudi Arabia given that their transfer window is open until Thursday.
