The mood at Manchester United is pretty low.
After crashing out of the Champions League prior to the March international break, it dawned on us that United will go five years without lifting a single trophy.
As we pointed out in a recent article, the problems we are seeing this season do not come down to the manager or the players, but the Glazer family.
Former United defender Gary Neville has urged the American family to press the reset button.
However, it seems like the mood inside the dressing room got worse over the weekend after United drew 1-1 with Leicester City at Old Trafford.
According to the Manchester Evening News, a number of players were left baffled to see Marcus Rashford left on the bench by Ralf Rangnick, and we agree that it was a baffling call by the manager.
Although Rashford has not been at his best this season, I don’t recall him suggesting that our season is ‘dead’, like Paul Pogba (via Daily Mail), who started ahead of him and offered nothing on the pitch.
Moreover, United were without Cristiano Ronaldo and Edinson Cavani, so Rangnick opted to start Bruno Fernandes as a false nine.
Rashford is a popular figure in the dressing room and this reaction doesn’t surprise us one bit.
