Why Jadon Sancho's Man United career is at a crossroads

"I will continue to fight for this badge no matter what," Jadon Sancho said in the final line of his bombshell social media statement on Sunday night, but the truth is he's now fighting to save his Manchester United career.

After Erik ten Hag revealed in the immediate aftermath of United's 3-1 defeat to Arsenal that Sancho wasn't part of the squad at the Emirates because of poor performances in training, the England forward hit back almost immediately, essentially accusing his manager of lying. "Please don't believe everything you read," he said in a statement posted within an hour of Ten Hag's postmatch comments.
