A GROUP of first-team stars at Manchester United allegedly disagree with Erik ten Hag’s decision to exile Jadon Sancho.
That’s following reports that a number of aces are “growing weary” of the Dutchman’s criticism – with some believing he has “favourites” he refuses to dig out.

Both men are refusing to back down.
And Sancho was once again left watching the action from home as United lost 4-3 to Bayern Munich in the Champions League on Wednesday.
It remains to be seen if the forward will ever return to first-team action.
But talkSPORT claims the decision to exile Sancho has not gone down well with some team-mates, who believe Ten Hag is making a mistake leaving him out in the cold.
Since Sancho’s banishment, United have lost three games in a row – conceding ten goals in the process.
SunSport exclusively revealed that four stars had a huge dressing room row after the home defeat to Brighton, when Ten Hag opted not to start any wingers in a new-look formation.
And elsewhere, the Manchester Evening News claims there are now grumblings in the dressing room over Ten Hag’s criticism.
Some stars believe he has “favourites” who don’t get targeted, while others are “routinely rounded on”.
They are also said to be unhappy with the way Ten Hag released David de Gea over the summer.
And with winger Antony’s absence wrecking United’s tactics, it’s believed certain players are being given extra responsibility to carry out Ten Hag’s plans on the pitch.
However, it’s now got to the point that it is becoming a burden for those involved.
United will now be hoping to prevent a run of four straight defeats when they face Burnley at Turf Moor tomorrow.
But there is no chance of Sancho getting a recall, with Ten Hag saying: “It depends on him.
“For the rest, we are preparing for Burnley and that’s our focus. He will not be in the squad.”
