Man United dressing room discontent as fears the Reds are far from united begin to grow

Manchester United’s dressing room is reportedly divided behind the scenes as suggestions first-team players Paul Pogba and Anthony Martial were the main contributors in Romelu Lukaku’s decision to join Inter Milan begin to emerge.

United’s performances on the pitch have been far from satisfactory after the Reds started the 2020-21 campaign in dire fashion as crushing 3-1 and 6-1 Premier League defeats to Crystal Palace and Spurs respectively signalled an onrushing wave of expected criticism.

However, the scenes off the field of play could be even bleaker than those on it if recent claims from leading journalist Di Paolo Condo of La Repubblica are anything to go by.

Paolo Condo claims that the Reds’ camp is not a happy one with discontent continuing to grow after Pogba and Martial played a key role in former striker Lukaku opting to depart the club in favour of a move to Serie A side Inter Milan last summer.

In his report Paolo Condo, as quoted by Express said: “If things don’t improve, the next transfer window will be used by someone to attack Matic, and in the background remains the boulder of Pogba’s contract expiration, set at 2021.

“The players, then, talk to each other.

“Lukaku was tired of United because Pogba and Martial were struggling to pass him the ball, a picture of a dressing room divided in groups.

“When Sanchez and Young asked him before signing how things were at Inter, the first answer was ‘really good, there are no clans’.

“Times have really changed.”

The Italian journalist’s stunning claims come in light of a recent report from The Athletic who claim that Portuguese midfielder Bruno Fernandes is upset with manager Solskjaer after he hauled him off the pitch just after half-time during the Reds’ 6-1 thrashing against Jose Mourinho’s Spurs.

Although both reports have not been confirmed by the club, it goes without saying, the number of claims emerging taking a similar stance are definitely a worry for us fans.

    United betrayed José Mourinho for Pogba and his clan. Can the playful Pogba safe united ?

  2. Gary says:

    This sounds like a load of bollocks

  3. Dave says:

    Pogba is always angling for a move. He is at the biggest club in the World, but it would be his ‘dream’ to play for Real Madrid. The sooner we get rid of him the better, it’s not like he’s any good !!!!

  4. Oluwagbemiga Ogundiyan says:

    Unhealthy rivalry is the problem of united players. It’s expected because one player thinks the other is outshinning the other especialy one player been praised to high heavens after every match. In every ecosystem,its survival of the fittest.

  5. Philips says:

    If at all Paul want to leave, let him do that without spoiling our team.

  6. Sinclair Caswell says:

    Get rid of Pogba and Martial. Now we got Donny and Cavani. They will be the cause of Solskaer getting sacked. Ole’ better wake up and buy himself a hairdryer. His not ruthless enough.

  7. Patrick Oduma says:

    All these allegation about Pogba, Martial, Lukaku etc are of the past and should not arise anymore because after Lukaku’s departure, the team has been doing very well. The problem is with the coach. It is his duty to unite the players, field the right performing on form players for every game, avoid none performers like Lingard, Fred, Mensa, Lindelof etc. The coach himself should also act tough and active to the players. Ole’s problems is that he does not know how to read the opponents’ game and change it. He behaves as Mr Good to players. Let him act and stamp authority to players without fear or favor. If he covers those areas i have pinpointed, then we stand to start winning our upcoming games.
