I played for Man Utd under Fergie – Jadon Sancho would never see the light of day again if he was manager | The Sun

JADON SANCHO would never play for Manchester United again if Sir Alex Ferguson was still in charge, Ben Foster has claimed.

Ex-Man Utd goalkeeper Foster shared his thoughts on Sancho's explosive statement hitting back at Erik ten Hag's comments criticising his "performances in training".

Speaking on The United Stand YouTube channel alongside United fan and talkSPORT pundit Mark Goldbridge, Foster, 40, explained how there would be no room for Sancho's dissent under Ferguson.

He said: "It's crazy mate. If Alex Ferguson is manager at this moment in time of Manchester United, and Jadon Sancho does this, he will never see the light of day again for Man Utd.

"He'll never play for this club, he'll never be allowed in the training ground, you are done mate."

He continued: "I understand when [ex] players say they would do the same thing, that's fantastic, you are allowed to do that if you want to.

"But it's not going to help you. It's petulant, it's reactive, it's emotional, it's disrespectful, it just become a massive storm of news.

"Everyone wants to know; what's up with Sancho? What's up with Ten Hag? Has he lost the dressing room? What were Sancho's training sessions like this week?

"Sancho says he's applied himself very well in training, that's fantastic you should be applying yourself very well, that's the minimum."

Ferguson was famously ruthless with a big stars during his time at United, with the likes of David Beckham and Roy Keane -who was involved in an altercation with a fan after the Arsenal game – among them.

Ten Hag said Sancho was not in the squad for the 3-1 defeat at Arsenal due to his training performances in training throughout the week.

But Sancho, 23, posted a statement on his social media pages claiming he had become a "scapegoat" an believed there was an ulterior motive behind him being dropped.

He said: "I will not allow people saying things that is completely untrue, I have conducted myself in training very well this week.

"I believe there are other reasons for this matter that I won't go into, I've been a scapegoat for a long time which isn't fair!

"All I want to do is play football with a smile on my face and contribute to my team.

"I respect all decisions that are made by the coaching staff, I play with fantastic players and grateful to do so which I know every week is a challenge.

"I will continue to fight for this badge no matter what."

Sancho is yet to start for the Red Devils this season, coming off the bench in their three fixtures before the Arsenal match.

Instead, Alejandro Garnacho – who thought he had netted the winner for United before his goal was ruled out for offside – has started twice at left-wing before Marcus Rashford was restored there.
