Manchester United’s interim manager Ralf Rangnick is battling “very low” morale just four games into the job, amid growing concerns about divisions and clicks within the squad.
With a terrible result when Ole Gunnar Solskjaer was fired in November, United showed a short promise in Rangnick’s first match against Crystal Palace, as it seemed that the players immediately took advantage of his philosophy.
But a 1-0 victory over Norwich that flattered to fool and then this week’s gloomy 1-1 draw against Newcastle where United were lucky not to lose has raised new questions.
Former United captain Gary Neville openly questioned the attitude of several players against Newcastle in his role as a savvy for Sky Sports and the lack of unity and cohesion in the squad that was evident during Solskjaer’s last months as manager does not seem to be improving.
Despite the arrival of a new coach and coaching staff, which often results in at least a temporary boost – which was the case when Solskjaer was appointed in December 2018 – United continue to look sluggish and Rangnick has a big job to do but just pull his hand. the troupe together.
The Daily Mail writes that the mood on the training ground is perceived to be “very low” and that there is “growing concern” that locker room clicks will form. The latter has been further fueled by the recent addition of four-seater booths in the gym, making it possible for a small group of players to break off and socialize with each other.
It is said that there are even problems with players struggling to adapt to the timing of Rangnick’s workouts, which are usually held later in the day.
The German also has to deal with the consequences of Solskjaer’s preference to avoid confrontation, with several players including Anthony Martial, Donny van de Beek, Jesse Lingard and Eric Bailly dissatisfied with peripheral roles after previously receiving assurances that have not been true.
