Manchester United midfielder Fred has spoken out against recent reports claiming there is unrest in Old Trafford’s locker room.
After a series of overwhelming results, including a 1-1 draw against Newcastle and a 1-0 loss to Wolves, dissatisfaction at United has been a common theme in the English press.
Countless stores have reported that there are frustrations from players about results, as well as manager Ralf Rangnick.
Fred has been mentioned in these statements, and some suggest that he belongs to the unhappy group in the locker room. However, the midfielder has now struck back.
“In recent days, I’ve read several fake news stories involving my name and other MUFC athletes,” he wrote on Twitter. “I’m not used to answering controversial things in public, but this time I have to do it.
“I just want to say that I am very happy here and I have never expressed any dissatisfaction and the opportunity to leave the club. Do not be misled by fake news. We will continue to work with great commitment to achieve our goals.”
Although Fred may not be among the unfortunate group, there are many players who are anxious to move on from United in the coming weeks in the midst of concerns about their playing time.
Rangnick has confirmed that forward Anthony Martial is looking for a transfer, while midfielders Donny van de Beek and Jesse Lingard join goalkeeper Dean Henderson and are frustrated by their lack of minutes.
Left-back Luke Shaw hinted at splits within the group during the defeat against Wolves, which hinted that the players were not “all together” in the match.
That defeat left United in seventh place in the Premier League, where Rangnick’s men missed the chance to take over Tottenham and reduce the gap to the top four.
