Jadon Sancho has made his return to Manchester United’s training facility, Carrington, marking his first appearance since his clash with manager Erik ten Hag.

The United winger had been sidelined from Ten Hag’s squad due to his refusal to apologize and mend relations with the head coach.

This discord erupted publicly when Sancho criticized Ten Hag in a now-deleted social media post, alleging that he was being made a’scapegoat’ after being dropped from United’s matchday squad in a 3-1 defeat against Arsenal in early September.

After being denied access to first-team facilities, Sancho was recently spotted back at Carrington, where he posed for a photo with teammate Kobbie Mainoo and an enthusiastic young fan during a United U18 match.

In the image, Sancho sported a Manchester United puffer jacket and flashed a smile. The caption on the fan’s post read: ‘Watching United U18’s with the lads.’

United’s U18 team went on to secure a resounding 5-1 victory over Newcastle that day, with both Sancho and Mainoo observing from the sidelines.

It was previously reported that Sancho would undergo separate training sessions away from the first-team squad while efforts were made to mend his relationship with Ten Hag.

A club statement had clarified this situation: ‘Jadon Sancho will remain on a personal training program away from the first-team group pending resolution of a squad discipline issue.’

Sancho has not featured for the Red Devils’ first team since their triumph over Nottingham Forest on August 26.

The discord between Sancho and ten Hag arose after the Dutch coach cited the winger’s omission from United’s 3-1 defeat by Arsenal on September 3rd as being related to his ‘performances in training.’

This prompted a response from Sancho, who asserted he was ‘being made a scapegoat,’ though the post was later deleted.

He expressed, ‘I have conducted myself in training very well this week’ and ‘I’ve been a scapegoat for a long time which isn’t fair!’

Ten Hag had planned to hold discussions with Sancho to resolve the matter, with additional reports revealing the involvement of Man United’s football director John Murtough and CEO Richard Arnold in trying to mend the rift.

On a positive note for United, fellow winger Antony returned to training at Carrington on Saturday before their 1-0 home defeat to Crystal Palace.

Antony, aged 23, had been questioned by Greater Manchester Police on Thursday regarding allegations of assaulting his girlfriend Gabriela Cavallin—a claim he vehemently denies. He was allowed to return home without restrictions.

United issued a statement announcing Antony’s comeback ahead of Ten Hag’s press conference on Friday, where the Dutchman stated: ‘We make the statement, so I refer to the statement; everything has been made clear in the statement. No, I don’t think it’s a distraction. We will focus on the games. He will do as well.

‘On Saturday, he will be back in training, so tomorrow. I have to see, but I think, yeah (he’s fit).’
