Jadon Sancho risks disciplinary action over response to Erik ten Hag criticism
Manchester United are standing by Erik ten Hags comments about Jadon Sancho following their 3-1 defeat to Arsenal, with the player risking disciplinary action over his social media outburst after the game.
United sources say there is nothing to add to the managers comments, with Ten Hag revealing after the loss at the Emirates Stadium that he had omitted Sancho from the matchday squad due to his performances in training. That prompted a rebuttal from Sancho, who claimed on Twitter that he had been made a scapegoat. United and Ten Hag have opted against making a public statement in response to Sanchos post.
Tensions have been building between Ten Hag and Sancho, with the United manager unhappy with the wingers performances in training for weeks, leading to the selection of academy prospects Hannibal Mejbri (20) and Dan Gore (18) on the substitutes bench ahead of the 23-year-old on Sunday.
