The England international has not featured for Manchester United since his feud with Erik ten Hag became public.
Steve Bruce has suggested that the key to resolving Jadon Sancho’s suspension lies in an apology from the player to the entire team.
Erik ten Hag criticized Sancho’s training performance earlier this month. It promoted a furious response on social media from the player, who accused the manager of dishonesty. He has since had to train on his own and hasn’t featured in any of the club’s last five games.
Ten Hag has refrained from commenting on Sancho’s future or the deletion of his Instagram account.
Speaking on Sky Sports, Bruce emphasized, “The only way this is going to be resolved is if he goes in to say to the manager that he apologizes. And he apologizes to his teammates.”
Bruce, who made 414 appearances and won 12 trophies during his spell as a United defender between 1987 and 1996, urged Sancho to show respect for Ten Hag’s decisions.
“The kid’s a talented player, ” Bruce added on the 23-year-old.
“We haven’t really seen the best of him here, but we know he’s got really, really good ability. But he can’t have the issue now where there’s rules for one and rules for another.
“Ten Hag’s been like that since he’s walked through the door, he will not put up with this ill-discipline.”
