Damning training-ground footage of Jadon Sancho resurfaces amid row with Erik ten Hag
| Last updated
Damning footage of Jadon Sancho training with Manchester United has resurfaced amid his public row with Erik ten Hag.
With the game perfectly poised at 1-1, substitute Alejandro Garnacho looked to have won it for United in stoppage time, only for his goal to be chalked off by the narrowest of offside calls.
Arsenal new boy Declan Rice then then arrived at the back-post to score his first goal for the Gunners and send the Emirates into ecstasy, before Gabriel Jesus sealed the victory with a well-taken finish.
But it was Erik ten Hag's comments about Jadon Sancho after the game that made the headlines, with the United winger biting back at his manager's comments with a social media post online.
Ten Hag revealed that Sancho had been left out of the match-day squad due to issues in training, and footage has since resurfaced of the Englishman doing some rather unconvincing push-ups at Carrington. You can watch the video below.
The 23-year-old can be seen in the background performing a slightly more relaxed version of Bruno Fernandes' push-ups, somewhat proving his manager's comments right.
However, Sancho has branded Ten Hag's criticism "untrue", stating that he has 'conducted himself very well in training'.
"Please don't believe everything you read," Sancho said in a post on social media. "I will not allow people saying things that is completely untrue, I have conducted myself in training very well this week," he said.
"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!"
