According to the British press, four Man Utd players had a big argument in the Old Trafford dressing room after the home team suffered a 1-3 defeat to Brighton.
Although the season has just begun, Man Utd is already facing great difficulties. The 1-3 loss to Brighton pushed the Red Devils down to 13th place in the Premier League with 6 points. They experienced the worst start in this tournament when they lost 3/5 of their first matches.
It is worth mentioning that the root of the problem lies in the serious rift within Man Utd. Not long ago, Jadon Sancho publicly criticized coach Ten Hag in the newspaper. After that, Sancho decided not to apologize to the teacher and accepted to practice alone.
After the loss to Brighton, the situation got even worse for Man Utd. According to The Sun, there were two arguments between four players in the Old Trafford dressing room when Man Utd lost.
First, captain Bruno Fernandes shouted at Scott McTominay. The Portuguese star was unhappy when McTominay completely disappeared in the midfield.
This makes it easy for Brighton to counterattack and pushes Man Utd into a passive defensive position. It feels like every move Brighton makes puts Man Utd in a dangerous situation.
In the second argument, Lisandro Martinez and Victor Lindelof expressed dissatisfaction with each other. The Man Utd midfielder pair did not create a connection in that match.
Sharing on social networks, former Man Utd midfielder Gary Neville said that coach Ten Hag gradually lost control in the dressing room. He said: “What kind of voice does Sancho have in the Man Utd dressing room? How influential is Maguire?
Coach Ten Hag is making mistakes that outsiders cannot know. We all feel the discomfort and insecurity within Man Utd.
You can see a player (Sancho) who should be in the same dressing room as the first team but is now training alone. Maguire used to be the captain but is now shunned and ignored.
I don’t know the extent of the club’s damage. After Sir Alex Ferguson retired, many good coaches had to face challenges in Man Utd’s dressing room.
I hope this is just a temporary period of turmoil and will not happen again. Previously, Jose Mourinho, Louis van Gaal, David Moyes, Ralf Rangnick and Ole Gunnar Solskjaer all encountered turbulence with internal problems.”
