MANCHESTER UNITED star Jadon Sancho keeps in shape during the World Cup in Holland – and now we know why.
The 22-year-old winger, who left fans stunned when he recently blacked out his Instagram account, has won 23 caps for England.
After some impressive years in Germany with Borussia Dortmund, he moved to Old Trafford last year.
This had led to him becoming a regular in Gareth Southgate’s England squad.
However, due to a slump in form for his club, he lost his spot with the Three Lions, resulting in him missing out on the World Cup.
Sancho’s last appearance for England was in September.
And some reports have claimed it was his timekeeping that proved to be a problem for Southgate.
Sancho was reportedly late for a team meeting in October 2021 ahead of England’s World Cup qualifier in Andorra.
The ace has scored three times in 14 appearances at club level this season since Erik ten Hag took charge of United.
And although his form has waned since his electric start to the season, Sancho is still tough in training now without the Red Devils.

Now the MEN have claimed he is working in Holland “on the advice of Ten Hag to keep fit and refocus” with Dutch coaches in Holland during the World Cup break.
They state that sources have told them “Sancho is working hard to improve his form and is taking advice from Ten Hag”.
Sancho was invited to practice at Dutch amateur club OJC Rosmalen when he took part in some ball work involving mannequins.
When asked about Sancho’s World Cup nudge earlier this month, Ten Hag said: “He’s put in some really good performances and he’s heading in a good direction.
“But in the last few weeks he has been struggling with illnesses. Then it’s normal not to get the nomination. Every manager will only take fit players to the World Cup.”
