Jadon Sancho is refusing to issue a public apology to Erik ten Hag as he feels the Dutchman has shown double standards with his treatment of the Manchester United winger.
The Dutchman told reporters following a 3-1 defeat to Arsenal that Sancho was not named in the squad due to his performances in training.
Sancho labelled the claims ‘completely untrue’ on Twitter, and essentially labelled his manager a liar.
Since face-to-face talks on Monday, Sancho has deleted the tweet. That move was seen as a step in the right direction.
However, Sancho is refusing to back down from his belief that he’s been used as a scapegoat.

The midfielder was told to issue a public apology for his statement, and he refused to do so.
That’s seen Sancho banished from first-team training, with United confirming on Thursday that he is training individually.
But Sancho shows no signs of backing down, and the Telegraph say he feels wronged by Ten Hag’s ‘double standards’.

Sancho feels there’s wide inconsistencies in how Ten Hag treats him compared to some of his team-mates.
Football Director John Murtough has intervened in an attempt to sort out the dispute between the pair.
But it’s possible that Sancho has played his last game for the club.
