Manchester United forward Jadon Sancho could face disciplinary action at the club following his outburst over the comments from manager Erik ten Hag, Manchester Evening News report.
The England international was not part of the travelling group to north London last weekend, and there were no surprises that he did not make the matchday squad versus Arsenal.
Speaking after the 3-1 loss at the Emirates Stadium, Ten Hag revealed that Sancho was dropped due to his poor attitude in training, but this did not go well with the attacker.
Sancho released a statement saying that he conducted well in training, and he won’t entertain false comments. He added that he is being made a ‘scapegoat’ which isn’t fair.
Manchester Evening News now claim that the 23-year-old could face disciplinary action from the club.
Sancho could be suspended for one game with possible fine
Ten Hag has been strict when it comes to discipline and training since he took over at the helm.
Alejandro Garnacho was dropped from pre-season friendlies in Australia last summer after he reportedly arrived late for a couple of team meetings.
Meanwhile, Cristiano Ronaldo was suspended for one game last season after he refused to come on as a late substitute against Tottenham Hotspur.
Marcus Rashford was also dropped from the starting XI against Wolverhampton Wanderers on New Year’s Day after arriving late for a team meeting.
Taking this into regard, Sancho could face a suspension of at least one game, and we won’t be surprised if he is fined his salary for an entire week.
However, the big question mark is whether Sancho can resurrect his United career. The €45 million-rated star has been out-of-favour for a starting spot.
After his public outcry yesterday, he has made things more difficult for himself. He will need to earn back the manager’s confidence to take the field.
