Jadon Sancho’s Man Utd team-mates ‘not big fans’ after Erik ten Hag row

Manchester United winger Jadon Sancho is coming under intense scrutiny for his public disagreement with manager Erik ten Hag.

The falling out has raised questions about Sancho's popularity among his team-mates. It has now been revealed that some of his United colleagues "are not big fans" of the 23-year-old.

It comes after Sancho's response to being dropped from the squad for the weekend Premier League match against Arsenal, where he claimed to have been a "scapegoat" for some time after Ten Hag questioned his level of commitment in training. Sancho's lack of popularity within the dressing room is attributed to concerns about his effort levels and commitment, reports the Mirror.

ESPN's Mark Ogden commented on this issue, stating that not all players are universally liked by their peers. He said: "Not every player is popular with his team-mates.

"Dressing rooms aren't always happy places and I have been told there are some players that aren't big fans of Jadon Sancho at Manchester United. If they feel his performances and commitment aren't matching up to their level, it's going to be an issue."

Since joining United from Borussia Dortmund for £73million two years ago, Sancho has struggled to live up to expectations. He has only scored 12 goals during his time at the club and has lost his place in the England squad due to a lack of consistency.

Should Manchester United cut their losses with Jadon Sancho in January? Let us know in the comments section below.

The winger is not a guaranteed starter for the Red Devils, coming on as a substitute in their opening three games of the season. Despite the criticism, the England international defended himself on social media, claiming that there were other reasons behind his non-selection and that he had conducted himself well in training.

The former Manchester City youth player released a statement which read: "Please don't believe everything you read! I will not allow people saying things that is completely untrue. I have conducted myself in training very well this week.

"I believe there are other reasons for this matter that I won't go into, I have been a scapegoat for a long time which isn't fair! All I want to do is play football with a smile on my face and contribute to my team.

"I respect all decisions that are made by the coaching staff, I play with fantastic players and grateful to do so which I know every week is a challenge. I will continue to fight for this badge no matter what!"

Reports suggest that Sancho's attitude has also become a concern for England manager Gareth Southgate and his staff, having noted his reaction to being snubbed for a game at Euro 2020. According to the Daily Mail, Sancho 'sulks when things don't go his way'.
