  • Listen to the latest episode of Mail Sport’s podcast ‘It’s All Kicking Off!’ 

Jadon Sancho has been banished from first-team training at Manchester United until he apologises to furious manager Erik ten Hag.

Sancho has refused to back down in their row and is being forced to train on his own at the youth academy at Carrington so he has no interaction with his teammates.

United made the announcement on Thursday as efforts continued to heal the rift between the 23-year-old player and Ten Hag.

A statement read: ‘Jadon Sancho will remain on a personal training programme away from the first-team group pending resolution of a squad discipline issue.’

Ten Hag is still angry over Sancho’s social media post that effectively branded him a liar for saying the player was left out of the squad to face Arsenal because he had not trained well. The England winger further inflamed the situation by claiming to have been made a scapegoat.

The post was removed following talks with Ten Hag on Monday but Sancho has so far refused to say sorry.

United’s football director John Murtough and chief executive Richard Arnold have been trying to broker a peace deal, although it’s understood that the club have given Ten Hag total support and are not pressuring him to back down. The manager is said to feel wronged and decided to take a tough stance by axing Sancho from training.

This is the second time that Sancho has been made to train on his own by Ten Hag after he worked alone for eight weeks over the World Cup last winter to try and overcome physical and mental issues.

However, on that occasion Ten Hag took a more sympathetic approach and sent Sancho to train at Dutch amateur club OJC Rosmalen where he worked with coaches trusted by the United boss. He did not play for the club for more than three months.

This time, Ten Hag has taken a more hard-line approach and is clearly not ready to forgive and forget Sancho’s transgressions.

United almost sold him to Al-Ettifaq last week in a deal that would have seen the Saudi Arabian club take Sancho on loan until the end of the season before signing him on a permanent basis, but they could not afford the £50million transfer fee.

United were also prepared to listen to offers in the region of £45m this summer for Sancho who has had a disappointing career at Old Trafford since arriving from Borussia Dortmund in a £73m deal two years ago.
