Jadon Sancho ‘returns to training with the Manchester United first team’ following Erik ten Hag’s decision to send him to Holland in a bid to improve his physical and mental wellbeing

  • Jadon Sancho has returned to training with Manchester United ‘s first-team
  • The 22-year-old winger went abroad to work on his physical and mental health
  • The England star returned to Carrington last week and trained on his own
  • Sancho has joined back up with the squad ahead of their game with Palace 

Jadon Sancho is said to have returned to training with Manchester United’s first-team on Tuesday afternoon. 

The 22-year-old was sent to Holland by United manager Erik ten Hag in November 2022 amid concerns over his physical and mental readiness to play for United.

Sancho was also left off the club’s mid-World Cup training camp to Spain with Ten Hag explaining that he was not in the right frame of mind or fitness to play.

Ten Hag thought it would be beneficial for Sancho to break up his routine by flying over to Holland to train in a different environment. 

Therefore, Sancho took part in a series of sessions at Dutch amateur club OJC Rosmalen with coaches recommended by Ten Hag.

Sancho was pictured returning to Carrington last week to continue his work on an individual programme before joining up with the first-team squad. 

‘He is back in Manchester and will start individual training,’ said the United boss when asked for an update on Sancho’s comeback last week.

‘Of course, the time is coming but the time is not now. He is making progress and we will see when he is ready to return to the squad.’ 

The Athletic have now reported that Sancho returned to first-team training on Tuesday afternoon. 

Sancho has not played for the club in over 10 weeks, with his last minutes coming in October’s 1-1 draw with Chelsea at Stamford Bridge. 

His turbulent last two months came as a bit of a shock after the former England man started brightly under Ten Hag, including scoring three goals in his first eight games.
