Jadon Sancho’s public fall-out with Erik ten Hag shows no sign of ending soon with the player now banned from all of Manchester United’s first-team facilities, including the dining room.
Sancho was dropped from the United squad that lost at Arsenal this month with Ten Hag revealing in his post-match press conference that the player’s performance in training were not up to scratch.

In a social media post, Sancho hit back at his manager and said the claims are ‘untrue’ and that he is being made a ‘scapegoat’.
The former Dortmund star has refused to apologise for his comments and has been ordered to train alone at Carrington until the matter is resolved.
According to the Daily Mirror, Sancho has been banned from all of United’s first-team facilities – and he is being forced to eat his meals with the club’s academy players.
They also claim that Rashford, Harry Maguire and Luke Shaw have all urged Sancho to apologise to the manager while The Times claim the Professional Footballers’ Association (PFA) has offered to step in and help resolve the issue.
But the fall-out does not appear to be reaching a resolution and news of his exile from all first-team facilities is the latest hint he could leave in January.
It is believed that Sancho has been late for training on a number of occasions since the incident.
Meanwhile, Barcelona are keeping a close eye on the Sancho situation and will consider a loan move in January if he remains an outcast at Old Trafford.
Dortmund are also reportedly plotting a loan move for the 23-year-old Englishman.
