Jadon Sancho is training with a coach 'recommended' by Erik ten Hag to turn Man Utd career around

Jadon Sancho is working with a coach recommended by Manchester United manager Erik ten Hag during the World Cup break.

The 22-year-old is currently in the Netherlands after failing to earn a spot in England's 26-man squad for Qatar.

Sancho started the season in promising fashion, scoring against Liverpool and Leicester City. Illness and a drop-off in form have seen him fail to make a start in over a month.

Per the Manchester Evening News, Sancho is currently abroad to 'refocus' ahead of domestic action returning in mid-December. A clip of the winger dribbling with the ball past mannequins has emerged online, which you can check out below.


It's believed the club Sancho is working with is OJC Rosmalen, the biggest amateur side in the country.

Sancho joined United from Borussia Dortmund in a £73 million deal in 2021 but has failed to live up to expectations at Old Trafford.

The former Manchester City academy star is said to be working hard to regain his starting spot under ten Hag, taking his advice seriously.

Last week, Sancho blacked out his social media accounts to focus on his football for the rest of the campaign.

United signed Antony from Ajax in the summer, while Alejandro Garnacho's blossoming first-team career means the Red Devils are well-equipped in wide positions.

When asked about Sancho's omission from the England squad prior to the World Cup, ten Hag said: "He [Sancho] has had some really good performances [earlier in the season] and was going in a good direction. But the last weeks he struggled with illness. Then it’s normal that you don’t get the nomination for [the World Cup]. Every manager will take only fit players to the World Cup."

Sancho last played for England in September 2021, when he registered two assists in a 5-0 win over Andorra.

He was part of the England squad which reached the final of Euro 2020 but missed a vital penalty in shootout defeat to Italy.

England are currently top of Group B following a 6-2 win over Iran.

They return to action against the USMNT on Friday evening, knowing victory will all but guarantee a place in the round of 16.
