According to reports, Manchester United has disputed that four of its players engaged in a “furious dressing room bust-up” following their Saturday 3-1 defeat to Brighton.
The Red Devils were destroyed on Saturday by goals from Danny Welbeck, Pascal Gross, and Joao Pedro, with teenage midfielder Hannibal Mejbri scoring a late consolation goal for Manchester United.
With their third loss in as many Premier League games, Man Utd are currently 13th in the early standings after their first five games.
Ten Hag, who had a great first season at Old Trafford, is under increasing pressure to turn things around, but he is dealing with a lot of challenges at the club.
Due to a disagreement with Ten Hag following remarks made in public that criticized the performance of the winger in training, Jadon Sancho is currently training separately from the first-team group.
While Antony, another Man Utd winger, has been given a leave of absence to investigate claims of violence towards women brought against him.
Four Manchester United players ‘were embroiled in a furious dressing-room bust-up after Saturday’s home defeat to Brighton,’ according to The Sun.
According to reports, before Ten Hag “tried to restore order,” captain Bruno Fernandes “confronted fellow midfielder Scott McTominay” and “centre-back pairing Lisandro Martinez and Victor Lindelof also lost it with each other following a calamitous defensive display.”
When the Daily Mail inquired about the article in The Sun, the Man Utd’refuted the claims of the report’.
It follows reports from Football Insider that Harry Maguire, who didn’t come off the bench against Brighton, “stomped out of Old Trafford” and “exited the stadium within 15 minutes of the match’s conclusion.”
And former Manchester United player Gary Neville said there are currently “some bugs” in the locker room and “discomfort and uncertainty” all around the team.
How well-liked is Sancho in the locker room, Neville asked Sky Sports? How well-known is Maguire?
We are unaware from the outside of the anguish and worry that Ten Hag’s bugs are causing on the inside.
“You have a player who is over with the academy but is probably changing in the first-team dressing room. Harry, the team’s captain a year ago, has now all but lost the respect of the third, fourth, and fifth center-half.
“So Ten Hag has some circumstances there, but I’m not sure how much harm they’re doing.
Since Sir Alex Ferguson left, numerous competent managers have encountered difficulties at United.
“I’m hoping it’s just a difficult start to the season and not a repeat of what we’ve seen previously — where it started to become challenging for Jose Mourinho, Louis van Gaal, David Moyes, Ralf Rangnick, and Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.”
