Manchester United have reportedly sanctioned Aaron Wan-Bissaka after he failed to turn up to training on more than one occasion.
The right-back’s form has dropped off this season following his once stellar displays for United.
In fact, he has struggled alongside a host of other Red Devils stars amid their patchy form this term.
Since interim manager Ralf Rangnick came in, pundits such as Gary Neville have criticised the body language of some of the playersWhile the results have improved since Ole Gunnar Solskjaer left, United have been told their performances could have been better.
But according to journalist Duncan Castles, Wan-Bissaka is now in the firing line for his actions off the pitch.
The right-back has missed United’s past four games.
Rangnick confirmed in mid-January that the player was “still ill”.
However, Castles has claimed that there is more to the story.
Castles said that the right-back has missed “a lot of training” sessions. He added that Wan-Bissaka’s reasoning does not conform with the usual practice.
What’s more, other members of the squad are reportedly talking about the goings-on at United’s Carrington training base.
“I’m told that on at least one occasion he failed to turn up to training, citing illness as a reason, calling in to say that he was ill and that’s why he wasn’t coming in for trainingI’m told that on at least one occasion he failed to turn up to training, citing illness as a reason, calling in to say that he was ill and that’s why he wasn’t coming in for training,” Castles told the Transfer Window podcast.
Wan-Bissaka sanctioned by Man Utd – report“That’s very unusual at a football club. Generally if you have an illness you’ll come into the training ground, allow the club doctors to assess you, and then they make a decision in collaboration with the player as to whether you train and obviously the best way to get you healthy again to play.“
