Players' union intervenes in the case of Sancho, 'banished' by Ten Hag

The English players' union (PFA) is keen to delve into the matter between Jadon Sancho and Manchester United. The English forward has not been in action since August under manager Erik ten Hag and is reportedly not even welcome in the areas used by the first team.

The Times reports that the Professional Footballers' Association has approached Man Utd to mediate in the challenging situation. The dispute began with comments from Ten Hag during a press event, where the Dutch coach stated that Sancho was not in the match squad due to his poor performances in training.

Sancho subsequently shared a message on social media accusing Ten Hag of lying. The manager then demanded an apology, which according to English media, never came. The Daily Mirror reports that Sancho not only has to train with Man Utd's reserves but is also not allowed in the dining hall of the first team.

The PFA has reached out to both Man Utd and Sancho to mediate, but so far, this has not been successful. On Friday, Ten Hag announced in a press event that Sancho is not training with the main squad and would also not be in the matchday squad for the game against Burnley. On Tuesday evening, Man Utd plays in the League Cup against Crystal Palace; Ten Hag indicated that it's 'up to him' (Sancho) when he will return.
