Manchester United boss Erik ten Hag could have a plan in place to get Jadon Sancho back to his best after the star was seen training individually at an amateur club in Holland. The former Borussia Dortmund man has struggled since his big-money move back to the Premier League, but will hope to see an improvement after the World Cup break.

Sancho was spotted putting in extra work at OJC Rosmalen, in a bid to bounce back from being snubbed by Gareth Southgate for a place in the England squad in Qatar. The 22-year-old has also recently shut off his Instagram account in a bid to stay focused for when the club football calendar resumes.

Sancho is training in Ten Hag’s homeland, and is working with a coach that he was recommended to by the United boss according to Dutch journalist Joost Blaauwhof. OJC Rosmalen sent the player their well-wishes on Twitter, writing: “We hope you had a pleasant training with us! You are always welcome to train with us and have a good time.”

United are set to resume training next week ahead of their seven-day training camp in Spain, where they will face La Liga sides Cadiz and Real Betis before English football resumes with their Carabao Cup tie with Burnley next month and then their first Premier League game after the World Cup at home to Nottingham Forest on December 27.

Sancho has strong competition on the flanks at United, with Marcus Rashford and Antony ahead of him in the pecking order, while Alejandro Garnacho made a strong impression after breaking into the team and he also has Anthony Elanga for competition. United icon Rio Ferdinand claimed that Sancho has lost his “swagger” since moving to Old Trafford.

“The confidence and the swagger when he walked through the doors at Old Trafford isn’t there right now,” Ferdinand said on Vibe with Five in October. “He’s just coming back out and playing back and recycling the ball. This isn’t you man.

“I don’t know what it is and Antony has been the same in some games. A lot of the time he comes back, doesn’t go on the outside or cross the ball. He’s exciting but he’s still passing the ball back a lot.

“With Sancho I just feel that it’s in there and what I will give him credit for is his defensive work. His shape has been good but it’s the other side of the game that’s missing and that’s why we bought him.

“We didn’t buy him to be a defender, we bought him to destroy teams. I want to see more from him and Antony in that area.”
