MANCHESTER UNITED star Jadon Sancho is keeping himself in shape throughout the World Cup in Holland – and now we know why.
The 22-year-old winger, who left fans baffled by his blacking out his Instagram account recently, has won 23 caps for England.
He moved to Old Trafford last year after a stunning few years in Germany at Borussia Dortmund.
That had led to him becoming a regular in Gareth Southgate’s England squad.
However, a drop in form for his club has seen him lose his Three Lions place which has resulted in him missing out on the World Cup.
Sancho’s last appearance for England was back in September.
And some reports have claimed that it was his timekeeping that proved to be an issue for Southgate.
Sancho was allegedly late for a team meeting in October 2021 ahead of England’s World Cup qualifier away to Andorra.
The ace has found the net three times in 14 appearances this term at club level since Erik ten Hag took charge of United.
And despite his form dropping off since his electric start to the season, Sancho is still hard at it in training now away from the Red Devils.

Now the MEN have claimed that he is working with Dutch coaches in Holland “on the advice of Ten Hag in order to keep fit and refocus” during the World Cup break.
They state that sources have told them “Sancho is working hard to improve his form and taking advice from Ten Hag”.
Sancho has been snapped training with Dutch amateur club OJC Rosmalen as he took part in some ball work around mannequins.
When Ten Hag was asked about Sancho’s World Cup snub earlier this month, he said: “He has had some really good performances and was going in a good direction.
“But the last few weeks he struggled with illness. Then it’s normal that you don’t get the nomination. Every manager will take only fit players to the World Cup.”
