A HOST of Manchester United stars have “urged Jadon Sancho to say sorry and end his feud” with Erik ten Hag.
We reported yesterday how the England international winger, 23, has allegedly been BARRED from all first-team facilities with the Red Devils.

The row erupted on September 3 when Ten Hag accused Sancho of not training well enough to warrant a place in United‘s matchday squad to face Arsenal on September 3.
Sancho instantly hit back on social media, describing himself as a “scapegoat and essentially calling his manager a liar.
The ex-Dortmund ace has not featured for the club since and was banished from first-team training under Ten Hag’s ruthless stance – with some team-mates disagreeing with the Dutchman’s call.
Now The Mirror has claimed that the likes of Marcus Rashford, Luke Shaw and former captain Harry Maguire have attempted to step-in to try and resolve the issue.
They claim that his team-mates have attempted to persuade Sancho to apologise to the boss.
They state that senior colleagues “have all pleaded with him to swallow his pride” and told the attacker that “there will only be one winner in his ongoing battle” with the Dutchman.
And they advised that the £73m ace should back down in order to start playing again.
They quote a source as saying: “Jadon’s team-mates have been telling him to back down and say sorry to the boss.
“They want him to apologise. They sympathise with him and the way he feels, but recognise a line was crossed with what he posted.”
We reported how Sancho is not allowed to go into any of the areas at the club’s Carrington HQ that are for the senior men’s team – including the canteen.
He has been eating alongside the academy players – as well as training with them – with no return date to get back into the first-team fold.
Ten Hag, though, is said to be willing to relent and welcome Sancho back – but only on one condition.
A source said: “There is an easy way to resolve this situation, which is for Jadon to say sorry to the manager.
“Something has to give – and it won’t be the manager.”
Sancho joined United from Dortmund for £73m in 2021.
The 23-cap Three Lions international, though, has struggled to deliver with just 12 goals in 82 Red Devils appearances.
