Manchester United attacker will not travel with Manchester United as they jet out for a warm weather training camp.
The forward missed out on England’s World Cup squad and has remained at home since the Premier League season was paused in mid-November. United will resume their campaign against Nottingham Forest just two days after Christmas and Erik ten Hag is looking to get his team primed.
Manchester United will head to Spain for a warm weather training camp but Jadon Sancho is a notable absentee as he undergoes a specific one-on-one programme in the Netherlands
Sancho has endured a mixed time since moving to Old Trafford from Borussia Dortmund last summer and Ten Hag wants to get the forward firing on all cylinders. As a result the United boss has decided to send him to the Netherlands to undergo an individual training programme with recommended coaches.
United’s website said in a statement: “Jadon Sancho is continuing his individual training programme as part of a process to get back to his highest level. The club is fully supporting him in this.”
The 22-year-old has started in 10 of United’s 14 league games this term, scoring on two occasions. Competition for places in Manchester is ramping up though with Antony, Marcus Rashford, breakthrough star Alejandro Garnacho and Sancho all eyeing starting roles on the wing.
Ten Hag has recently demanded more from Sancho, who is still looking to hit the heights expected of him following his £72m switch. He scored the winner against Leicester earlier this term and netted against Liverpool, but is by no means influencing games like he used to in the Bundesliga.
