David Ornstein reveals what he's 'heard' about Jadon Sancho and his 'deep issue' at Man Utd

David Ornstein has revealed what he's 'heard' about Jadon Sancho amid his public dispute with Erik ten Hag at Manchester United.

The feud between Sancho and Ten Hag continues to rumble on following his omission from the squad against Arsenal earlier this month.

The Dutch boss provided an update on the player following his side's 3-0 victory over Crystal Palace in the Carabao Cup on Tuesday.

'Insiders' at Man United have since revealed the reason why he won't apologise to Ten Hag as he remains banished from the first-team.

The 23-year-old has been linked with a move away from Old Trafford, with the Red Devils believed to have identified a Liverpool transfer target as a replacement.

Ornstein has now shared what he's 'heard' about Sancho, revealing there has been 'dialogue' between the respective parties to find a solution.

"Right now, I'm not aware of any change to his situation and therefore the longer this goes on you suspect the outlook comes increasingly bleak. That actually issue at stake is as little as one tweet. But obviously it runs much deeper. Sancho deleting the tweet appears to show he knows it breached club rules. Yet the apology that Erik ten Hag wants, to our knowledge, has not arrived," he said in a Q&A for The Athletic.

"I've been careful with my wording there because we don't know Sancho was/is not prepared to say sorry - the question is whether that apology and the form it takes is to Ten Hag's satisfaction. There is no evidence yet of either side backing down, but equally the last I heard there was dialogue taking place between the respective parties to find some kind of resolution. It is not good for the club, team, staff, squad or Sancho. He is an incredibly talented 23-year-old footballer who is not playing football and that is not right. One way or the other, this will need to come to a head. Whether the damage can be repaired and Sancho reintegrated or he moves on in January I really don't know."

Referencing Cristiano Ronaldo and Mesut Ozil, Ornstein added: "We saw the way it went with Cristiano Ronaldo. We've seen similar at Arsenal with Mesut Ozil. But this is a young, 73million signing with a long career ahead of him. That makes it different and ups the ante. It's a mess and I think everybody (bar, perhaps, rival fans) would like to see it sorted out sooner rather than later."
