Jadon Sancho nearing Man Utd return

Manchester United forward Jadon Sancho has returned to training after a lengthy spell on the sidelines.

Sancho has not played for the Red Devils since the end of October and has been on an individual training regime since November.

The former Borussia Dortmund star missed out on England’s 2022 FIFA World Cup squad before not being included in Man Utd’s warm weather training camp prior to the Premier League re-start.

Now, however, Sancho finally looks set to return to action for Man Utd in the very near future, with the forward being spotted in first-team training this week for the first time in over two months.

Speaking in early January about Sancho, manager Erik ten Hag hinted that the player’s issue was both a physical and mental one, stating: “With the physical, there’s also a connection of mental.

“I think he’s now making good progress on the physical part and that will help him. I hope he can return quickly but I can’t say how long it will be. In this moment, he is not fit enough, no.”
