Manchester United exile Jadon Sancho was spotted watching the Under-18s in action at Carrington on Saturday.

It comes as the first team prepare to face Brighton – live on talkSPORT 2 – with Sancho urged to stay away.

Sancho was in attendance at Carrington to watch United’s Under-18s in action

The 23-year-old has been training alone at Carrington after being banned from first-team training.

And he was present at United’s training ground as the Under-18s kicked off against Nottingham Forest Under-18s in an early kick-off on Saturday.

While he watched the academy team play, there is no chance Sancho would be involved against Brighton, who the Red Devils face in a Premier League clash in the final kick-off of the daytime.

Erik ten Hag has told the striker he will not train with the first team after refusing to apologize following a public row.

The United boss accused Sancho of not training well enough in preparation for the game against Arsenal before the international break.

This claim was vehemently denied by the Englishman, taking to social media to denounce his boss’ comments and pinning it on his personal Twitter page and liked by Marcus Rashford.

He wrote: “Please don’t believe everything you read. I will not allow people to say completely false things.

“I did very well in training this week.”

Sancho has since deleted the post

United released a statement on their website revealing that Sancho would not be training with the first team.

This came after it was reported that the player refused to apologize to Ten Hag for his social media posts.

The Dutch coach refused to answer questions about the former Borussia Dortmund star when asked about his availability for the rest of the season.

And speaking on talkSPORT’s The Sport Bar, former Tottenham star Jamie O’Hara was shocked by the way United treated the winger.

“I think what they’re doing to him is disgusting,” O’Hara said on The Sports Bar.

“I know he made a statement, whether it was the right thing to do or not… but was Ten Hag right to dig him up when he wasn’t even involved in the group?

“We all know that Jadon Sancho needs to be better on the football field. And to achieve this, it allows him to start playing football again, to train and to enjoy his football.

“What they are doing to him right now will never bring Jadon Sancho back to his best. All you’re going to do is mentally harm the football player and make him feel worse than he already does.
