Erik ten Hag’s comments that Jadon Sancho did not practice properly before of Manchester United’s match against Arsenal have been refuted by Jadon Sancho. The Englishman feels that his exclusion from the team has nothing to do with the recent training sessions.

Following the defeat to Arsenal, Ten Hag addressed to the media and said that he dropped Sancho due to poor training. He went on to say that Manchester United players are required to keep a particular standard, which the Englishman did not.

Sancho took to X (previously Twitter) to warn Manchester United supporters not to accept anything the manager says in the media. He went on to say that he is being used as a scapegoat at Old Trafford and wrote:

Don’t take everything you read at face value! I will not stand for untruths being spread about me; I have shown excellent behavior at training this week. I think there are more reasons for this, but I won’t go into them; it’s not fair that I’ve been made the scapegoat for so long.

He added:

My only goal in life is to make positive contributions to my squad while having fun playing football. I appreciate the opportunity to compete each week with such talented individuals and accept the coaching staff’s judgment in all matters. No matter what, I will not stop fighting for this badge.

In the first three games of the season, Jadon Sancho came off the bench. He has only played 76 minutes and has yet to contribute a goal.
