BOSS Erik ten Hag fired a chilling dig towards Jadon Sancho – as an encouraging night for Manchester United turned awkward.
The Dutchman responded icily after Tuesday’s 3-0 Carabao Cup win over Crystal Palace when asked if the saga over outcast Sancho was nearer a solution.
The Red Devils’ winger is banned from all the club’s first-team facilities following a brutal exchange of words with Ten Hag.
And the manager told Sky Sports: “I don’t talk about players who are out of favour.”
Pushed on whether Sancho has an Old Trafford future now he has deleted his Instagram account Ten Hag added tersely: “I don’t know. It’s up to him.”
The ex-Ajax chief was far more comfortable bigging up youngsters like Facundo Pellestri and Alejandro Garnacho for “deserving” their chance in the comfotable third-round triumph.
But even those words could be taken as a jibe at Sancho.
Ten Hag said: “We had many young players on the pitch and you see they are progressing.
“With me you don’t get the opportunity, you have to deserve it!”
Sancho has been in trouble since hitting back after Ten Hag claimed he was omitted against Arsenal on September 3 due to his poor training.

The Englishman responded with a now-deleted post that contradicted his manager’s verdict.
The 23-cap star wrote: “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!”
It’s understood United officials met soon after to discuss Sancho’s future and how to resolve the situation.
But it’s believed the only way the problem could be soothed, at least in the short term, is Sancho apologising to Ten Hag.
