Angel Gomes scoffs at claims of Man Utd training bust-up

Manchester United midfielder Angel Gomes has denied he was sent home from training after he missed the 6-0 win over Tranmere.

The attacking midfielder, 19, was among the substitutes but failed to make it onto the pitch in the FA Cup fourth-round riot at Prenton Park.

The Sun reports after Ole Gunnar Solskjaer left him on the bench, rumours quickly begun to circulate as to why.

One fan claimed it was was because he was sent home from training for arriving late and had "no chance" of being considered for Tranmere.

Supporter Jamie Allen - a local journalist - wrote: "Angel Gomes apparently late for training so was sent straight home.

"No chance he was going to start against Tranmere."

But Gomes has laughed off that claim, quote-replying to the now-deleted tweet with a series of cry-laughing emojis.

Man Utd, meanwhile, quickly commented on the speculation, calling it "absolutely not true".
