Jadon Sancho has removed a controversial social media post where he criticized Manchester United manager Erik ten Hag. This incident occurred during the first international break of the season when Sancho was left out of the matchday squad for the Arsenal game due to what Ten Hag described as subpar training performances.
The 23-year-old forward quickly responded with a now-deleted message posted on X (formerly Twitter), disagreeing with Ten Hag’s assessment. He stated, “Please don’t believe everything you read. I will not allow people to say things that are completely untrue… I have conducted myself well in training this week.”
Sancho went on to suggest that there were other reasons behind his omission, although he did not elaborate on them. He expressed his desire to play football with a smile on his face and contribute to the team, emphasizing that he had been a scapegoat for some time and remained committed to the club.
Before being left out of the Arsenal match, Sancho had featured in games against Wolves, Tottenham, and Nottingham Forest. However, he primarily appeared as a substitute, accumulating 76 minutes of playing time without registering any goals or assists.
