In Summary

There is still no compromise from either party and United maintain an apology from Sancho.

Erik ten Hag has no intention of backing down.


Erik ten Hag the Manchester boss has no intention of backing down in his feud  with Jadon winger Sancho.

Sancho has not featured for the club this month after saying on social media he has “been a scapegoat for a long time” on September 3.

United were hoping the matter would have been resolved during the international break, with director of football John Murtough and CEO Richard Arnold trying to mediate.

There is still no compromise from either party and United maintain an apology from Sancho to Ten Hag is key to a resolution.

Some players sympathise with Sancho but no one thinks he should have posted the now-deleted message on X, formerly known as Twitter, that had been viewed more than 60 million times.

Mediation Efforts

The Professional Footballers’ Association has offered its support to Sancho, who feels unfairly treated.Senior players at United have also tried to remedy the situation.

Sancho, who deactivated his Instagram account on Tuesday morning, has been removed from the first-team group since September 14.

United insist he is not in “isolation” but is pursuing an individual training programme using the Academy facilities at Carrington.

The 23-year-old is still being overseen by fitness staff and coaches, has medical support, and access to all other essentials at the training ground. The club say he is simply operating outside of the first-team environment until the issue is settled.

During that period, Sancho did not play for United between October 22 and February 1 but did play in the Carabao Cup final win over Newcastle.

Sancho’s latest absence from the first-team group raises concerns about their numbers in the right-wing position, with Antony delaying his return to the club amid allegations of assault.

The Brazil winger denies the claims but has been placed on a leave of absence on full pay and is not suspended.
