Manchester United embraces both ‘protest wave + assault on girlfriend’… All included in PL 25-man squad

Manchester United added two controversial strikers, including Jadon Sancho, who caused a protest, and Anthony, who is under investigation for assaulting three women, including his former lover, to this season’s Premier League player list. .

Manchester United confirmed the Premier League squad for the 2023/24 season on the 14th (Korean time). This list includes 16 non-homegrown players and 9 homegrown players.

A homegrown player is a player who spent at least three years with an English Football Association (FA) team before the age of 21. There is a rule that all teams participating in the PL must have at least 8 homegrown players, but Manchester United registered 9 players, one more.

Among the homegrown players in the confirmed Manchester United squad is Jadon Sancho. On the 4th, Sancho caused a stir by criticizing the manager on social media, saying, “I have been a scapegoat for a long time,” when Manchester United manager Eric Tun Haag excluded him from the list due to ‘insufficient skills’ ahead of the match against Arsenal in the fourth round of the Premier League.

Because of this, Sancho’s future has become uncertain, and on the 8th, he received a request for a rental contract from Saudi Arabia’s Al-Etifaq, but the agreement between the clubs failed to proceed smoothly.

However, on the 13th, Sancho deleted the SNS post in question, acknowledged that his actions were wrong, and bowed his head.

Sancho had a conflict with the club and complained that he had been treated poorly, but he was included in the Manchester United squad for the 2023/24 season and was given the opportunity to play. He did not show perfect form last season, scoring 7 goals and 3 assists in 41 games. However, he showed that he can still be a good resource in the Premier League, recording a season rating of 7.3.

Sancho is not the only player who received a ‘surprise selection’ from coach Turn Haag.

Brazilian winger Anthony, who is currently temporarily suspended by the club due to controversy over assaulting his girlfriend, was also included in the Premier League squad. Anthony showed that he is an average resource at Manchester United last season, scoring 10 goals and 5 assists in 47 games. However, since Coach Tun Haag brought him to Manchester United from Ajax in the Netherlands, he is starting as a starter this season, but he was recently excluded from the Brazilian national team due to issues related to assaulting his girlfriend, and Manchester United also announced that he would not be able to train.

’90MIN’ also announced on the 11th that Anthony is currently living in Brazil and that Manchester United will not return to Old Trafford until all charges are cleared.메이저사이트

However, he made it known that Manchester United were waiting for him by being named in the Premier League squad. This means that if Anthony provides a sufficient explanation and overturns the charges, he is welcome to return at any time.

In a statement released on his SNS on the 6th, Anthony claimed his innocence, saying, “I am not guilty,” and added, “I cannot reveal the progress of the current investigation, but the evidence I submitted will prove my innocence.” It has been said.

In addition, the Manchester United squad includes homegrown players such as Harry Maguire, Scott McTominay, Mason Mount, and Marcus Rashford, while non-homegrown players include Tyrel Malacia, Lisandro Martinez, and Sofiao Amrabat. , Bruno Fernandes, Donny van de Beek, etc. are listed.

Rasmus Høirun and Alejandro Garnacho are not on the list, but since the two players are under the age of 21, the club can use them freely without any restrictions, so it appears that they were not included in the list. Hoirun is 20 years old and Garnacho is 19 years old, and must register on the list before two and three years have passed, respectively.

Manchester United aims to rebound through the PL 5th round match against Brighton & Hove Albion on the 16th. Currently, they only have 2 wins and 2 losses.
