Man Utd already have ideal solution amid Jadon Sancho and Antony situations

Manchester United already have the perfect solution within their ranks amid situations involving Jadon Sancho and Antony.

Sancho was left out of United's squad to take on Arsenal after manager Erik ten Hag said he was unimpressed by his training performances.

Later that evening, Sancho defended himself by releasing his own statement, in which he denied the claims made by Ten Hag.

He wrote: “Please don't believe everything you read! 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!"


Meanwhile, Antony is being investigated by police in England and Brazil over allegations of domestic violence made against him by his ex-girlfriend.

Antony has denied any wrongdoing in an online statement, and in an interview with a Brazilian TV station.


On Sunday, United confirmed in a statement that Antony would delay his return to the club after the international break in order to address the allegations.

They stated: "Players who have not participated in international matches are due back in training on Monday. However, it has been agreed with Antony that he will delay his return until future notice in order to address the allegations.

"As a club we condemn acts of violence and abuse. We recognise the importance of safeguarding all those involved in this situation, and we acknowledge the impact these allegations have on survivors of abuse."

Antony also released his own comment, stating he agreed with what was a 'mutual decision' between club and player.


With both Sancho and Antony potentially not being involved in the short-term, United fans will be worried about their lack of depth in their attacking options.

However, the perfect solution could already be within United's ranks.

Amad Diallo has been impressing many onlookers since he showed glimpses of his ability during his first loan spell with Rangers.

In the 2022/23 season, Amad was loaned to Championship side Sunderland, for which he played 42 matches, scoring 14.


The 21-year-old is currently recovering from a knee injury suffered during United's pre-season tour. It is unclear as to when he will return, but United fans will hope he can establish himself as a star performer on the right side of attack.
