Manchester United star Jadon Sancho has maintained his fitness throughout the World Cup in the Netherlands – Now we know why.
The 22-year-old winger, who has 23 caps for England, left fans baffled by his Instagram being blocked recently.
He moved to Old Trafford last year after an amazing spell in Germany at Borussia Dortmund.
This led to him becoming a regular in the England squad under Gareth Southgate.
However, his club’s decline in form saw him lose the Three Lions’ place and miss out on the World Cup.
Sancho’s last appearance for England was in September.
Some reports claimed that it was the timekeeping that proved problematic for Southgate.
Sancho was allegedly late to meet the squad in October 2021 ahead of England’s World Cup qualifier on Andorra soil.
The ace has scored three times in 14 appearances this season at club level since Erik ten Hag took charge of United.
And despite his form dipping since his electric debut this season, Sancho is still tough in training now away from the Red Devils.

Now the men’s team has claimed to be working with Dutch coaches in the Netherlands “on ten Hag’s advice in order to keep fit and refocus” during the World Cup break.
They state that sources told them that “Sancho works hard to improve his form and takes advice from Ten Hag”.
Sancho underwent training with Dutch amateur club OJC Rosmalen where he participated in some ball exercises around the crossbars.
When Ten Hag was asked about Sancho’s World Cup neglect earlier this month, he said: “He’s put in some really good performances and he’s been going in a good direction.
But the last few weeks he suffered from illness. Then naturally you will not get the nomination. Every coach will only take two players who are fit for the World Cup.”
