Jadon Sancho was absent from Manchester United’s 2-0 win over Burnley in the third round of the League Cup and 3-0 over Nottingtham Forest in the Premier League. The England international has not played for the Red Devils for two months, since the 1-1 draw with Chelsea on October 22.
Sancho started the season with a pretty good performance. Accordingly, he scored in the 2-1 win over Liverpool, as well as when Man Utd beat Leicester 1-0.
Since then, however, his form has declined. The 22-year-old has only scored 2 goals in his last 9 appearances in all competitions.
Most recently, coach Erik ten Hag admitted Sancho could not return to play. Specifically, the Dutch military leader said: “Now is not the time for Sancho to return to the squad but he is improving.
We’ll see when he’s ready to come back. He has returned to Manchester and will begin his personal training program.”
Currently, the Red Devils have no plans to sell Sancho at the moment, despite the player’s decline. According to many sources, coach Ten Hag will make efforts to help Sancho return in the near future.
