JADON SANCHO has reportedly refused to apologise to Erik ten Hag following his Twitter outburst as Manchester United banish him to train with the academy.
Sancho and his manager have been in a war of words since the England star claimed he was being used as a scapegoat after ten Hag left him out of the matchday squad for United’s 3-1 loss to Arsenal.

According to The Athletic, Sancho was asked to apologise to ten Hag, but has refused to do so.
The refusal has led to the Manchester club taking disciplinary action after they released a statement saying he would be training away from the main group.
The short statement released by the club read: “Jadon Sancho will remain on a personal training programme away from the first-team group, pending resolution of a squad discipline issue.”
Sancho had claimed ten Hag was using him as a scapegoat when the Dutch manager said the reason he was not picked was down to his performances in training.
The 23-year-old took to social media to have his say on the matter.
He wrote: “I will not allow people saying things that is completely untrue, I have conducted myself in training very well this week.
“I believe there are other reasons for this matter that I won’t go into, I’ve been a scapegoat for a long time which isn’t fair!
“All I want to do is play football with a smile on my face and contribute to my team.
“I respect all decisions that are made by the coaching staff, I play with fantastic players and grateful to do so which I know every week is a challenge.
“I will continue to fight for this badge no matter what.”
Sancho has since deleted the post from his social accounts but it would appear he is still upset over the situation with his refusal to apologise.
The tricky winger joined Man United in 2021 for an eye-watering £73m from Borussia Dortmund, but has failed to live up to his price tag.
