Sancho, 23, hit out at comments made by Ten Hag that suggested that he was not training to the appropriate standard, which led to him being dropped for the 3-1 defeat to Arsenal.

He was spotted for the first time since the spat at Man United’s Carrington training ground on Thursday.

Former Aston Villa striker Gabby Agbonlahor has slammed Ten Hag for his treatment of the winger.

Speaking on talkSPORT, he said: “You look at Jadon Sancho as an asset, 23 years old, bought for £73million two years ago, how much is he worth now?

“Is it worth being sent to train by himself? He is depreciating daily.

“Get someone higher above, like the chief executive, to sit down with the manager and him and sort it out.

“Manchester United now are not blessed with many wingers, Antony is now out and [Mason] Greenwood is gone.

“I think the disciplinary issue is that Sancho has probably been told that he has to apologise, and that he kept his tweet up for seven to eight days and didn’t bring it down and the manager is fuming.

“And Sancho probably says that ‘I am not apologising, what I said was fine. You came out first and said I was not training to the standards, I think I was so I have the right to speak’.


“This is not like the olden days, players will speak out now.

“If you look at Ten Hag what he has done since he has come to Manchester United is very good, he has got the disciplinary issues right.

“But with this one, why can’t you sit done with him, stop acting like a school teacher, he is acting a bit like my school teacher.”

Agbonlahor also spoke about how he was made to train by himself and claimed that it is “demoralising” as he suggested that Manchester United will not get a lot from making Sancho train by himself.

Other former footballers have had their say on the matter as Dimitar Berbatov thought that Sancho should have stayed quiet.

While Ryan Giggs believed that Ten Hag’s criticism was “the last throw of the dice” to try and motivate Sancho.
