Sancho was dropped from the squad for United’s 3-1 defeat to Arsenal earlier this month and speaking after his side’s loss at the Emirates Stadium, Ten Hag made it clear that he was unhappy with Sancho’s effort levels.
‘On his performance on training we didn’t select him,’ Ten Hag said.
‘You have to reach the level every day at Manchester United. You can make choices in the front line, so in this game he wasn’t selected.’
In a now-deleted social media post, Sancho branded Ten Hag’s claims as ‘untrue’ and claimed he is being made a ‘scapegoat’.
Sancho has since been made to train alone, while reports this week have claimed that the winger has been banned by Ten Hag from all first-team facilities, including the team dining room, at the club’s training ground.
According to ESPN, some of Sancho’s teammates, including Marcus Rashford, Luke Shaw and Harry Maguire, have told the 23-year-old to apologise to Ten Hag in order to salvage his career at United.
It’s understood that Sancho would need to offer an apology to Ten Hag to have any route back into the first-team squad.
The Professional Footballers Association (PFA) has also offered to step in to resolve the rift between Sancho and Ten Hag.
Sancho, who joined United in a £73 million deal from Borussia Dortmund in 2021, is understood to be open to leaving Old Trafford in the January transfer window.
The winger had attracted interest from the Saudi Pro League earlier this month.
