It is not the best of times at Old Trafford and Carrington as Manchester United struggle on the throes of a difficult campaign this season, MySportDab reports.
According to reports from Samuel Luckhurst of Manchester Evening News, Manchester United dressing room is in disarray after the Carabao Cup defeat to Newcastle United.
Sources close to United dressing room have revealed some Man United players have began to question Erik ten Hag’s tactics and game-plan as the dismal start to the season continues.
Erik ten Hag was held in high regard by Man United players with his ruthless grip and disciplined approach to player management.
Now, the Dutch is reportedly beginning to lose his control of the team as some players are reportedly fed up with his antics and are doubting his tactics.
However, the identity of the revolting players are undisclosed but it is pretty evident United’s on-field scrappy performance is possibly linked to a deep-seated fissures in the dressing room.
It is not the first time the club has been in the news for chaotic dressing room this season.
Jadon Sancho’s fallout with Erik ten Hag further lifted the lid on the disconnect and disunity among players in Manchester United dressing room with Erik ten Hag’s searing influence also said to be a factor.
With the latest report from Samuel Luckhurst, it is more likely there will be tough days ahead for Erik ten Hag especially if United continue to struggle this season.
The Dutch now face a hydra-headed task of mending broken links between players in dressing room, restoring the confidence of his players on his style of play, and overturning the unending run of poor results.
For the first time in Manchester United history since 1931, United have lost five home matches at Old Trafford in their first 10 matches with the last two defeats suffered with ignominious goal margins.
Erik ten Hag will hope to reverse the tide of shameful defeats and below-par performances when the team travel to take on Fulham at the weekend in the Premier League.
