Manchester United News: New year, same old problem with Manchester United. The fallen giants are looking into crisis midway through the season. The 20 times English Champions sacked Ole Gunnar Solskjaer in order to see a change in fortunes, but it’s not looking rosy.
Ralf Rangnick, the interim manager, is already feeling the heat as he faces a disgruntled dressing room. It’s not even 10 games under his helm, but the German is already facing a crisis.
The former RB Leipzig manager is facing the same issues as his predecessor. If reports are to be believed, there are already Cliques formed within the United squad.
Manchester United News: What do the reports say?
As many as 11 players are willing to leave the club if a close source is to be believed. They are not happy with how things are unfolding for them at the club.
The players feel marginalized the same way under Rangnick as they did under Solskjaer. This has led to an unpleasant atmosphere inside the United dressing room.
It is also believed that the players are not impressed with Rangnick’s tactics and his coaching. The position of Rangnick is also weakened by the fact that the German is here only till the end of the season.
Luke Shaw admitted that United players are disjointed and are not pulling together. The defender made the comments after United lost to Wolves at home.
The source further added that: “The atmosphere is looking very bad right now. If things continue like this, there will be massive problems for the club ahead.”
Which players are unhappy?
The likes of Donny van de Beek, Eric Bailly, and Dean Henderson are some of the players who are very frustrated with not getting a chance under the interim manager.
Rangnick is accused of doing the same things which Solskjaer did, that is picking up favourites. Lingard and Donny are waiting for their first start of the season. Whereas Henderson wants to go out on loan after not being able to dislodge him from the number one spot.
Rangnick wants Henderson to stay. However, the 23-year-old wants to play regularly in order to become the number one for England in this year’s world cup in Qatar.
Eric Bailly is also questioning his future at the club. The defender feels he should play more than enough since United defensive woes are for everyone to see.
The feeling of being robbed of showcasing their talents is hampering the unity and harmony of the dressing room.
Even the ex-United captain Gary Neville was vocal about the divisions in the squad. He talked about the issues that might flare up between Ronaldo and Maguire.
The Portuguese maverick is a frustrated figure because of the display of United on the pitch. The mercurial number 7 will be hoping that things change around quickly and United can start winning.
