The start of the season for the Red Devils is far from meeting the expectations of their supporters. After a weak win against Wolverhampton in the opener (1-0), Manchester United experienced disappointing results with a defeat at Tottenham (2-0), a painful win against Nottingham Forrest (3-2) and another setback on Sunday 3 September, against Arsenal (3-1). With six points out of twelve possible, the players are struggling to convince. In London, they burst late in the game with two goals in extra time. A defeat that Jadon Sancho experienced from his living room, without being summoned by Erik ten Hag.
Sancho: “I’ve been a scapegoat for a long time”
“Based on performance in training, we didn’t pick him. You have to be at the level every day at Manchester United. That’s why we chose not to take it.”justified the Dutch coach at a press conference.
A statement that did not go down well with the former Dortmund player. After three appearances in the previous days, he wanted to make things clear: “Please don’t believe everything you read! I’m not going to let people say things that are completely wrong, I’ve trained really well this week. I think there are other reasons why I was not included in the team. I have been scapegoated for a long time, which is not fair. »

“All I want is to play football with a smile on my face and help my team”, Sancho added. The Englishman was once again not retained by Gareth Southgate until the next international break. The likelihood of seeing him at the Euros in a position where Jack Grealish and Phil Foden are already developing is low.
