Erik ten Hag 'kicked out' five players from Man Utd dressing room last season, only one remains at the club

Erik ten Hag 'kicked out' five players from Man Utd dressing room last season, only one remains at the club

Sancho isn't the first player to be 'kicked out' of the dressing room.

Manchester United star Jadon Sancho has reportedly been 'exiled' from the first team dressing room by manager Erik ten Hag, with his future at the club now in severe doubt.

Sancho was involved in a public dispute with Ten Hag after United's 3-1 defeat to Arsenal earlier this month, releasing a statement on social media to deny his manager's claims that he was left out of the squad for that match due to poor training performances.

The pair then held 'clear-the-air' talks the following week, which resulted in United confirming that Sancho was training away from the rest of the squad on an individual programme 'pending the resolution of a squad discipline issue'.

The 23-year-old has not been considered for a matchday squad since then, and Ten Hag refused to address the winger by name in his first comments on the incident prior to the 3-1 defeat to Brighton.

According to the Daily Mirror, Sancho has been 'exiled' from using first team facilities at Carrington - and it is said that the only way to solve the ongoing saga is for the player to apologise to Ten Hag.

It is not the first time the Dutchman has effectively 'kicked out' players from the dressing room - although there were different circumstances involved last time.

The Sun reported last September that, following a number of summer signings, Ten Hag had to make room at Carrington by sending five existing players to use the U23 facilities.

It was reported that Phil Jones, Axel Tuanzebe and Teden Mengi were three of the five players forced to move elsewhere. Jones and Tuanzebe left Old Trafford in the summer after their contracts expired, while Mengi joined newly-promoted Luton on deadline day.

The fourth name reported was left-back Brandon Williams. He is currently at Championship side Ipswich, who are managed by former United coach Kieran McKenna and are sitting in second place in the second tier, on a season-long loan.

Only one of those five players, therefore, still remains at the club. Promising midfielder Shola Shoretire was among those who was reportedly exiled from the first team facility, and spent the second part of last season on loan at League One side Bolton.

Shoretire watched on as the Trotters beat Plymouth 4-0 in the Papa John's Trophy final, although he couldn't play in the final due to having already featured for United's age group side in the competition.

The 19-year-old, who became United's youngest ever player to play in a European competition in 2021, is back at Old Trafford this season.

He played in pre-season friendly wins over Wrexham and Leeds, but has not made a matchday squad so far this season.
