5 most popular reactions to reports of unrest in Man United dressing room

A turbulent campaign so far for Manchester United continues to get worse with every match day.

Even a change in stewardship in the form of new interim boss Ralf Rangnick hasn’t brought along respite for United fans.

The move was surrounded by a considerable amount of hype, with expectations of a football renaissance taking place at United, featuring an aggressive style of play alongside Rangnick’s trademark ‘gegenpressing’.

Unfortunately, so far it has been the opposite, and as cliche, as it may sound Rangnick’s Reds have indeed been ‘de-pressing’.

An agonizing defeat to Wolves at home has further complicated matters for the German manager, as it prompted reports of unrest within United’s ranks.

The leaks suggest that 11 United players are currently unhappy, with certain fringe players being at the forefront, including some who are plotting moves away from Old Trafford.

The leaks led to a plethora of reactions from supporters.

Users online were quick to take aim at the fringe players mentioned in the report, with some even suggesting that a select few benchwarmers could’ve been a source for these leaks.

Fans also sprung questions at club captain Harry Maguire.

The English centre back is far from a fan favourite at Old Trafford and his captaincy has often been a hotly debated topic.

With the emergence of reports which suggested a crumbling dressing room, fans reasonably questioned the abilities of their side’s captain, and also his influence within the locker room or rather the lack of it.

Some even expressed sympathy towards their new gaffer.

Ralf Ragnick’s task of rebuilding Manchester United was always going to be a daunting one.

The newly surfaced leaks perhaps add more insight into the complexities of the challenge the German faces, one which is certainly overburdening.

According to many fans, it appears that the club leaked some transfer rumours of their own to suppress the dressing room leaks.

The lack of a quality defensive midfielder has always been seen as a chink in United’s armour, and these new reports suggested an imminent signing to fill that slot.

The likes of Ruben Neves and Boubacar Kamara are among those associated with United in the past few hours, with the timing of the rumours causing United fans to question their legitimacy.

Some fans made their displeasure regarding the state of their beloved club be known, with the reports undoubtedly fueling their anger.
