Gary Neville reacts to Manchester United dressing room unhappiness report
Gary Neville has told Manchester United’s players to sort themselves out after a damning report highlighted the unhappiness within the squad.
The Mail reported United’s squad is divided by cliques and the players are unhappy with Ralf Rangnick’s training sessions dragging on until late afternoon.
Amid poor form on the pitch, more than a month after Ole Gunnar Solskjaer was fired, Manchester United fans are getting fed up with the players.
Neville had branded the players ‘whingers’ after the dismal Newcastle performance, and he gave his reaction to the latest reports this morning.
The former United right-back insists that recently results have not been terrible even if the performances have been, and wants to see the players take responsibility themselves.
Neville also took aim at the postponements ongoing across the Premier League and urged teams to find a way to play.
United had games cancelled against Brentford and Brighton, and Neville is of the view these games should have gone ahead, writing: “United should have been told to play.”
While Neville’s point is partially valid, the timing of the Brentford game put United in an impossible position with training base Carrington shut down and little time to prepare.
There is also the matter of sporting integrity, with some teams gaining a big advantage over others if lop-sided youth line-ups go up against full teams – although in United’s case, you do wonder whether the youngsters could do a better job sometimes.
As it stands, United’s upcoming game with Burnley is set to go ahead this Thursday, while no re-arranged dates have been given for the cancelled matches.
This week’s earlier opponents Newcastle have had their upcoming game with Everton called off due to a lack of available players.
