Jadon Sancho caused confusion after blacking out his Instagram profile and deleting all of his posts.
The forward was the high-profile absentee as he was snubbed by Gareth Southgate for a spot in England’s World Cup squad earlier this year.
Though he is yet to explain why he has deleted his posts, it’s understood that Sancho is taking a break from social media to focus on his family and the next stage of the Premier League season.
The 22-year-old, who joined the Manchester club only last summer for a whopping £73million, has struggled for form since arriving in England, last making an appearance for the Three Lions in September last year.
It was also recently reported that the 22-year-old’s timekeeping was an issue for Southgate before he failed to earn a place in the World Cup squad.
Those who have been called up to Qatar have been sharing snaps on social media from their luxury hotel.
The likes of Jack Grealish and Sancho’s United team-mate Harry Maguire have been sharing snaps from their trip.
Another one of Sancho’s club team-mates Marcus Rashford has also been left out of England’s squads over the past year after he struggled for form and confidence last season.
However, he has earned his place back and is in Southgate’s 26-man squad currently in Qatar.
Sancho started this season at United under new manager Erik ten Hag, but has recently been left out of the starting XI, with Anthony Elanga preferred out wide.
He missed United’s four games before the break through injury.
It was reported that Sancho was late for a team meeting ahead of England’s World Cup qualifier away to Andorra in October 2021.
Southgate only starts meetings when all players are in attendance, so he and his squad were left to wait. The United man was then left out of the next England squad.
The 22-year-old has been capped by England on 23 occasions since making his debut in 2018.
Though he has removed all posts from Instagram, he hasn’t done the same on his Twitter account.
