Man Utd 'insider' reveals why Jadon Sancho is 'refusing to apologise' to Erik ten Hag
| Last updated
A Manchester United 'insider' has revealed why Jadon Sancho has refused to apologise to Erik ten Hag following their public dispute.
The Dutch boss provided an update following his side's Carabao Cup victory over Crystal Palace at Old Trafford on Tuesday.
It has now been claimed that the 23-year-old believes that if he were to apologise now and admit the manager was right, it would undermine going public with his views, according to I News.
An 'insider' said: "He is a great player, that doesn’t go away, so he will have offers in January if we are where we are now – with first-team football at United a distant dream.
"But clubs need to see something that would encourage them to bring him to their club. Talent alone won’t get him a move to another top team.
"We are aware of how this all looks for him, and the longer United leave him in the cold, the lower his appeal drops."
Sancho, who joined Man United from Borussia Dortmund for £73 million, will remain on the sidelines until he apologises to Ten Hag.
In his absence, the Red Devils lost to Arsenal, Brighton and Bayern Munich. But they snapped their three-game losing streak when they beat Burnley and booked their spot in the next round of the Carabao Cup with a 3-0 win over Palace.
A Man United spokesperson declined to comment.
