“Morale in Manchester United is low. Ralf Rangnick inherited a split dressing room from Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, and as many as 17 players are reportedly dissatisfied. Many players are expected to leave in the coming months,” the Daily Mail reads.
Anthony Martial, Paul Pogba, Jesse Lingard, Edinson Cavani, Donny van de Beek, Dean Henderson and Eric Baily – these are the players who may leave anytime soon. The English tabloid says Martial can be loaned to Sevilla in the winter. Pogba and Lingard will not renew their contracts, which will expire in the summer, and Cavani has been informed that he cannot leave in January, but the Uruguayan will be a free player in the summer.
What about the rest? Donny van de Beek, Dean Henderson and Eric Bailly are unhappy with the rare game and will be looking for new options after the season. But these names do not end with the Daily Mail.
The Phil Jones stopwatch is tempted by Burnley, and Nemanja Matić, Fred and Diogo Dalot are players with ending contracts this summer, so they are already looking for new teams.
The difficult situation of Manchester United
Ralf Rangnick has a difficult task, because he took over Manchester only a few weeks ago, and today he has to face many problems. The situation in the league is also not colorful. After 19 rounds, the “Czerwony Diabły” only have 31 points and are only seventh. However, they only lose four points to the fourth place, which is guaranteed to play in the Champions League.
At the end of February, United will also compete in the Champions League, where they will face Atletico Madrid in the 1/8 finals.
What about Rangnick? “He’s a problem too”
The team’s problem is also that under Rangnick’s leadership, he doesn’t play any better than he did during Solskjaer’s tenure. Although Manchester United lost only on Monday (0: 1 against Wolverhampton), a week earlier they presented very poorly in the match against Newcastle United in the relegation zone (1-1).
Rangnick himself is also supposed to be a problem. As reported by ESPN, the German has so far not convinced the team with his tactical idea. What’s more, Rangnick has a problem with gaining respect from players, because some of them treat him as just a temporary solution that will not have a big impact on the club’s future. In the same ESPN article, we even read that one of the Manchester United players immediately after hiring Rangnick was to check on the Internet who his new coach was.
– It’s not good. The atmosphere is very bad and it seems that there are big problems ahead of the team, a source close to the team dressing room told The Mirror.
Manchester United will play their next game on Monday when they take on Aston Villa in the FA Cup. The Rangnicka team will also play with the same team on January 15, when they return to the fight in the Premier League.
