Mike Phelan is being asked to help unify Manchester United’s broken dressing room.
We’ve all read the reports about a crisis unfolding at Old Trafford, Ralf Rangnick will be doing his utmost to turn things around and lift the mood to give the team every chance of improving results this season.
In order to do that, Rangnick will call upon Rangnick to ‘help unify the dressing room’ after the pair held a two-hour meeting about the situation, according to the Telegraph.
Phelan is believed to be the perfect man to build bridges in a dressing room, which is said to be an unhappy place at the moment, with all of his experience he has gained from coaching at the club under different managers – dating back to Sir Alex Ferguson.
There were calls for Phelan to be shown the door by sections of social media following Solskjaer’s sacking because many felt he had such a big influence over the decisions made during the Norwegian’s reign.
It’s interesting now to find that the interim manager may call upon his services at a time of need.
Dressing room unrest is part of football and getting over it can take time. It’s important that the players don’t edge into holiday mode before the season ends, and they will have nothing to play for unless results quickly improve.
