Four Manchester United players are rallying squad and very annoyed at ‘false’ stories



| Last Updated:


Four Manchester United players have been rallying their squad following a difficult spell of form under Erik ten Hag this season.

The Reds have failed to inspire after a promising debut campaign with Ten Hag at the helm.

Unlikely to qualify from their Champions League group and sitting seventh in the Premier League table. But results have not even been the largest worry this season.

The performances from the team have been largely unimpressive, most recently against Newcastle United, and that has led to various reports in recent days emerging.

One suggested that Ten Hag has lost ’50 per cent’ of the Old Trafford dressing room, with players unhappy with the manager’s training methods, whilst another claimed that some ‘time-served’ players have questioned the latest signings of Ten Hag, including the addition of Rasmus Hojlund.

This is a familiar sight for United since Sir Alex Ferguson retired. Negative reports about the dressing room have always crept in under all managers at the club.

However, there are a quartet of United players who are attempting to lead the team away from their current form despite the negativity around the club.

UtdDistrict understands that Bruno Fernandes, Raphael Varane, Harry Maguire and Luke Shaw have been leader figures throughout this whole period, and are rallying the squad.

Those four players are also very annoyed at the constant “false” stories, however, they are keeping the squad focused and are determined to re-find the form of last season.

Various outlets, including the Manchester Evening News, have since been banned from Erik ten Hag’s press conferences for not providing the club a right to reply in their latest stories.

“They should come to us first and not go behind our back,” said Ten Hag when asked about the ban on Tuesday afternoon. “Printing articles that’s not the right thing.

“I think we have another relationship and they should give that to us beforehand and we have a normal and professional discussion and debate about it.”

United have a difficult upcoming schedule ahead of Christmas with five matches, including a huge game away at Liverpool and their final Champions League group-stage clash against Bayern Munich.

They will be focused on Chelsea travelling to Old Trafford for their league fixture on Wednesday evening, kicking off at 20:15 BST.
