Roy Keane believes Manchester United will be able to 'move on quickly' if Jadon Sancho apologises.
The Red Devils winger has been left out of Erik ten Hag's match day squads since the start of the month after he claimed he was being used as a 'scapegoat'.
Sancho's social media statement came after his manager told the media he wasn't training right when quizzed on why the ex-Borussia Dortmund star was absent for the Arsenal game.
Many ex-footballers and pundits have given their take on the situation, with some highlighting Sancho's mental health struggles last season as a factor to consider, whilst others have backed the manager.
Now, Man United legend Keane, who played 487 games for the club and won seven Premier Leagues, four FA Cups and a Champions League during that time, has backed Ten Hag's choice to be honest about Sancho's form in training.
Speaking on the first episode of The Overlap's show Stick to Football, he said: «I don’t think he is training right. I have no issue with his personality.
»I am not bothered about that [a player being withdrawn], the one thing we don’t really forgive a player for… we have all worked with players who have come in, they can be grumpy or whatever, but when they are training, they are training properly.
«My annoyance with Sancho would be if he is not training properly. Whatever it is about his personality, we're all different.»
Putting himself in Sancho's shoes, Keane admitted how gutted he'd be if a manager spoke about him like that in the media. However, he still maintained that Ten Hag was entitled to do so.
He continued: «I’d be embarrassed, I’d be ashamed of my life if the manager ever came up to me, or even spoke through the media because you get over that stuff.
