Saudi next? Why else would Jadon Sancho blow-up his Man Utd career like that?
COMMENT: It's one week. And it's one game. So why do it? And why now? Why did Jadon Sancho choose to take to social media and attack his manager as he did on Sunday...?
This was no meltdown. No spur of the moment thing. Sancho essentially released a prepared statement. The winger taking aim at Erik ten Hag and the Manchester United manager's claims of poor training ground form being reason for his omission at Arsenal.
Barely an hour after the final whistle, Sancho let it all hang out: Please don't believe everything you read! I will not allow people saying things that is completely untrue, I have conducted myself in training very well this week.
I believe there are other reasons for this matter that I won't go into, I've been a scapegoat for a long time which isn't fair!
All I want to do is play football with a smile on my face and contribute to my team. I respect all decisions that are made by the coaching staff, I play with fantastic players and grateful to do so which I know every week is a challenge. I will continue to fight for this badge no matter what."
