On Sunday night, a tense situation unfolded involving Erik ten Hag, the Manchester United manager, referees, and one of his own players, Jadon Sancho, following Arsenal’s late comeback victory over Manchester United. Ten Hag explained that he had excluded Sancho from the United squad due to his performance in training. In response, the 23-year-old English forward took to social media to strongly defend himself against what he saw as repeated scapegoating.

Sancho’s emotional statement emphasized his dedication to training and his desire to contribute positively to the team. He alluded to underlying reasons for the situation without delving into specifics. His primary goal remained to play football with enthusiasm, support his team, and embrace the weekly challenges of playing alongside exceptional teammates.
Notably, Sancho has made three appearances for Manchester United this season, all as a substitute. The late goals from Declan Rice and Gabriel Jesus secured Arsenal’s victory and left Manchester United in the 11th position in the Premier League standings after their first four matches.”
