Manchester United have been accused by former Tottenham Hotspur midfielder Jamie O’Hara of endangering the mental health of England international winger Jadon Sancho due to their treatment of Sancho.
Until a “squad discipline” issue is handled, Man United has announced that Sancho would be working apart from the first team.
That ties in with something Sancho said on X (formerly Twitter).
Sancho was not included in the Manchester United roster that lost 3-1 to Arsenal earlier this month.
The 23-year-old’s lack of training to the “level required,” in Ten Hag’s estimation, was the cause.
Sancho denied the allegations and said he was being set up as a scapegoat by Ten Hag in his response.
Later, it was claimed that if Sancho apologized to Ten Hag, he would be welcome back into the Man United squad.
O’Hara commented on the situation, calling Man United’s treatment of Sancho “disgusting.”
“I think it is disgusting what they [Manchester United] are doing to him,” O’Hara said on talkSPORT.
Whether that was the proper thing to do or not, he has stepped out and made a statement, and I am aware of that. But did Ten Hag have the right to unearth him since he wasn’t even a member of the gang?
They will never be able to restore Jadon Sancho to his former glory with the treatment he is receiving right now. The only thing you’ll accomplish is making the football player feel more worse about himself.
I’m sure Jadon Sancho is having a tough time right now,” he continued. He’s always struggled with his mental health.Manchester United should be ashamed of themselves if they treat their own player so cruelly after proclaiming themselves “mental health ambassadors” and doing so much good for the mental health of their group and community.
“In this day and age, they shouldn’t be doing that…. We are all aware of what has happened in the past, but it is unacceptable to subject a young kid who is already experiencing mental health problems to such treatment.
