Manchester United manager Eric ten Hag cuts questions short on Jadon Sancho

Jadon Sancho’s Manchester United exile is set to reach the five-week mark after Eric ten Hag refused to discuss the winger’s absence from the first-team squad.

Sancho has not played for United since his return against Nottingham Forest on 26 August and was left out of the matchday squad at Arsenal eight days later.

Ten Hag said Sancho’s omission was due to his training form, which Sancho swiftly argued against in a since-deleted post on Twitter in which he accused Ten Hag of lying.

United confirmed three weeks ago that Sancho would not be considered for selection pending the outcome of a disciplinary issue and he has missed League Cup and Premier League fixtures against Brighton, Bayern Munich, Burnley, Crystal Palace and Galatasaray.

The 23-year-old will also not be available for the trip to Brentford on Saturday. United would not play again until they traveled to Sheffield United on 21 October – eight weeks after Sancho’s last appearance.

When Ten Hag was asked about Sancho in the open part of the pre-match press conference, he completely ignored the reporter’s question. In the restricted section, he clarified: “Nothing has changed. He (Sancho) is not available, so I have no comment on that.”
