An unnamed Manchester United player has revealed that the United players are unhappy with manager Erik ten Hag for his treatment of Cristiano Ronaldo and Jadon Sancho.
The Red Devils have endured a torrid start to their season, and the unrest has been punctuated by a fallout between the manager and Sancho, who is currently sidelined by the club due to indiscipline.
The English winger and his manager have publicly traded words, and there seems to be no immediate ending to the feud despite United’s struggles and injury woes.
Speaking on the popular online radio program talkSPORT, commentator Alan Brazil told his co-host Ally McCoist that he has heard the players are not having the manager’.
“Do you know what Ally – and I know you’ve got to be careful what you report on – this is only what I heard from a United player who told someone we know very well,” Brazil said.
“He said the players are not having the manager. They’re not having him, definitely not.
“By all accounts, they’re disgusted at the way he treated Cristiano, and they say Sancho is a great guy who works his socks off, so I don’t know who to believe, to be honest.”
McCoist replies: “I tell you one thing, you can guarantee it’s still not right there, is it?”
“No, he said the players aren’t having him, they’re not having him”, Brazil responded.
United’s blushes were spared last time out by Scott McTominay’s late heroics, with the Scotsman scoring two late goals to give the Red Devils a 2-1 win over Brentford just before the international break. But things remain unstable at Old Trafford, with United struggling in the Premier League and sitting at the bottom of their Champions League group after two games.
