Jadon Sancho spotted watching Man Utd U18s after being banished from first-team

Jadon Sancho watched Manchester United's Under-18s instead of the first-team's defeat to Brighton in the wake of his axing.

The 23-year-old was spotted in attendance at the Red Devils' Carrington training ground on Saturday (September 16) afternoon. He was picked up by MUTV's cameras watching on from the sidelines.

He witnessed the youth team claiming a 2-1 victory over Nottingham Forest, despite them going down to 10 men in the first half after 17-year-old forward Ashton Missin was shown two yellow cards in the space of a minute.

That game finished roughly 40 minutes before Erik ten Hag's side kicked-off at Old Trafford against the Seagulls – but Sancho didn't make the seven mile journey across Manchester to lend his support.

He was banished from training with his team-mates this week after refusing to apologise to his boss for claiming he'd lied about his lack of effort. Ten Hag had said that was the reason why he didn't feature against Arsenal before the international break.

Sancho responded with a shock statement posted to social media hours later, which could spell the end of his United career. Daily Star Sport understands he's expected to be sold when the January transfer window rolls around.

Who's side are you on – Sancho's or Ten Hag's – and why? Let us know in the comments section.

Ten Hag didn't entertain conversation about the situation in his pre-match press conference on Friday. "I think everything has been said," he told reporters.

Without Sancho, United were convincingly beat on home turf. Goals from Danny Welbeck, Pascal Gross and Joao Pedro put Brighton well in control, with Hannibal Mejbri scoring a consolation.

Ten Hag was booed by his own fans for taking off Rasmus Hojlund for Anthony Martial in the second half, and chants of "Viva Ronaldo" could be heard inside the ground as they slipped to a third defeat in five games.
