Manchester United Players’ Discontent with Jadon Sancho

In a recent development, it has come to light that Manchester United players are growing increasingly frustrated with Jadon Sancho.

The 23-year-old winger’s strained relationship with Red Devils’ head coach, Erik ten Hag, has raised concerns within the team.

Sancho was notably absent from the squad during the recent Premier League clash against Arsenal. Ten Hag justified this decision by citing subpar training performances by the talented attacker.

Sancho, however, took to social media to respond to his manager’s comments, further exacerbating the tension at Old Trafford.

Although there were earlier rumors linking Sancho to a potential transfer to Saudi Arabia before their transfer deadline, the Saudi Pro League window has now closed.

Consequently, Sancho is set to remain with the 20-time English champions at least until the January transfer window.

According to ESPN, Sancho’s teammates are not sympathetic to his situation, with one source revealing, “the players have had enough of him.”

The report suggests a prevailing sentiment among both players and the coaching staff that Sancho could contribute more, and his ‘demeanor around the club’ has only worsened matters.

Sancho faced personal challenges that kept him away from the pitch for an extended period last year.

Ten Hag, who had previously supported him through this difficult phase, is believed to be disappointed with Sancho’s current performance.

While there were speculations that Sancho might be utilized in a false nine position at the beginning of the season due to his impressive preseason performances, he only appeared as a substitute in matches against Wolverhampton Wanderers, Tottenham Hotspur, and Nottingham Forest, before being entirely omitted from the Arsenal fixture.

The outlook appears bleak for Sancho’s return to the squad for Manchester United’s next Premier League game against Brighton & Hove Albion on September 16.

Since his move from Borussia Dortmund to Manchester United in the summer of 2021, Sancho has struggled to make a significant impact, managing only 12 goals and six assists in 82 appearances.

Depending on how the situation with Ten Hag evolves, Sancho may find himself training separately from the first team in the coming weeks.

It was widely reported that Manchester United was open to letting Sancho go for the right price during the summer transfer window.

Bayern Munich is now closely monitoring the situation and could potentially make a move when the January transfer window opens for business.
