Crisis has resurfaced in the Manchester United dressing room as the players revolt manager, Ralf Rangnick’s treatment of Jesse Lingard.
The players are not happy about how things have played out following Lingard’s omission from Friday’s FA Cup clash with Middlesbrough.
The England international was not named in the squad for the FA Cup defeat to the Championship side, with Rangnick insisting that the forward had told him he wasn’t in the right frame of mind to play even after the 29-year-old refuted the claims.
And now The Mirror reports that the saga playing out in public has not gone down well with some of the Red Devils stars and Rangnick faces a fresh dressing room revolt.
The senior players at the club see all this as a distraction and do not want such unnecessary noise to continue with pressure growing on them to save their season with a decent run in the Champions League and a top-four finish in the league far from guaranteed.
An insider told The Mirror: “It isn’t the United way to voice these issues in the media.
“This is a time to stick together, not go public with things that might cause division.”
