Rio Ferdinand tells £350,000 per week Man United star he’s “not getting in the squad for the rest of the season”

After an impressive career at Borussia Dortmund, where he contributed to 114 goals in just 137 games, Jadon Sancho’s move to Manchester United in 2021 seemed destined for greatness. However, his time in the Premier League has been far from that, as he has struggled to make an impact at United and is now considered a transfer disappointment.

To make matters worse, Sancho has released a statement criticizing United’s manager, Erik ten Hag, claiming that he was dropped from the squad due to a subpar week of training.

In response to Sancho’s comments, Rio Ferdinand expressed some skepticism on Twitter. He suggested that Sancho wouldn’t release a statement like that unless he felt he had underperformed in his own eyes. He also noted that managers may have specific expectations even if players feel they have trained adequately. Ferdinand then implied that Sancho’s options might be limited, with a potential move to Saudi Arabia as the only remaining window of opportunity, or he could face being benched or excluded from the squad for the rest of the season.

Sancho’s statement was a reaction to Ten Hag’s interview, in which the manager stated that Sancho was not selected based on his training performances and the expectations of daily standards at Manchester United.

The situation now looks grim for Sancho in terms of regaining Ten Hag’s favor. His chances of breaking into the Dutchman’s starting lineup appear slim, and it seems unlikely that he will be able to prove his critics wrong at Old Trafford.

With the transfer market closed in most of Europe, it remains uncertain where Sancho will go from here. His current statistics at United, with only 18 goal involvements (12 goals, 6 assists) in 82 games played, reflect a disappointing turn of events for a player who scored 50 goals in Germany.

While Sancho is still only 23 years old, there is a growing sense of doubt that his situation will improve in Manchester. The public dispute between Sancho and Ten Hag adds an intriguing layer to the story as the Premier League season heats up.
