- Jadon Sancho has left fans puzzled after completely blacking out his Instagram
- The Manchester United forward was snubbed by Gareth Southgate from the England squad
- Sancho, 22, has been struggling to reciprocate his Borussia Dortmund form since making the move to Manchester United
Manchester United forward Jadon Sancho has blacked out his profile and deleted or archived all his Instagram posts in a move that has left fans puzzled.
Sancho has not had the most positive starts to the season, and despite initially showing some promise under Erik Ten Hag, his form has slowly dipped once again.
In fact, his form has taken a massive hit that Gareth Southgate completely overlooked him for the England squad for the Qatar World Cup.
Prior to the snub, the former Borussia Dortmund man missed Manchester United’s last two games through illness.

So far this season, Sancho has three goals and one assist in all competitions.
In the wake of the World Cup snub, Sancho has been subjected to ridicule on social media as he became the laughingstock of the internet for his spectacular fall from grace.
Sancho had at least 30 goal involvements in the last three seasons prior to joining Manchester United, and his dip in form will surely have affected his confidence.
So much, in fact, that he seemingly decided to go ‘ghost’ on his social media.
Fans who noted Sancho’s social media activity were quick to express their concern. Here are some of the comments:
Jadon Sancho has had to deal with constant racist abuse and also deal with the death of a family member whilst adapting to a new league and playing under 4 different managers in the space of a year. Insane amount of psychological strain for a 22 year old.
"I hope Jadon Sancho is okay man
"You don’t think it’s draining constantly getting abuse for something you love doing? No wonder he’s not performing, he probably doesn’t care as much anymore
"Sancho would have benefited staying at Dortmund for a little longer.
“He genuinely would have benefitted joining a club that A, played the football he was suited to and B, paid him a lesser wage so he had less expectation to live up too and something to strive for.” Said one fan.
