Despite finishing seventh in the Premier League and trailing Aston Villa by five points, Manchester United is grappling with consistency issues on the pitch this season.
The Champions League standings show the team at the bottom of their group with one game left, and their EFL Cup journey was cut short with a humbling 3-0 defeat to Newcastle United.
Erik ten Hag, the manager of Manchester United, is facing additional challenges as reports from Sky Sports suggest that he has lost certain sections of the locker room at Old Trafford.
Chief reporter Kaveh Solhekol highlighted several concerning reasons for this unsettling development.
According to insider information, a significant portion of the dressing room is no longer supportive of Ten Hag.
Some players express confusion about the team’s direction, feeling that training sessions involve excessive physical exertion and lack clear objectives.
Approximately half of the changing area is said to have turned away from the manager.
In discussions with a few veteran players, concerns have been raised about the team’s overall performance and deficiencies.
These players believe that Ten Hag should adopt a more sentimental approach, drawing from their experiences with other top-tier teams.
The pattern at Old Trafford since Sir Alex Ferguson’s departure in 2013 has become a source of frustration for United fans.
The team often starts well under a new manager before underlying issues surface. Previous managers, including Louis Van Gaal, Jose Mourinho, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, and now Ten Hag, have faced challenges leading the team.
Despite initial success, recent rumors suggest that Ten Hag may encounter additional problems as Manchester United gears up for crucial fixtures against Bayern Munich, Liverpool, Chelsea, and Bournemouth.
It is imperative for the Red Devils to address these issues swiftly and rediscover their form on the field.
