Handbags at Manchester United. We can’t have a crisis at Old Trafford without the tabloids reporting on a scuffle amongst the lads.
After the game on Saturday against Brighton, I know part of me wanting to think some of the players were just as annoyed. Now reports claim four Manchester United players were involved in a “furious dressing room bust-up”, as per The Sun.
These are usually nothing stories – true or not – because footballers fight all of the time. It happens and they get on with it.
Club captain Bruno Fernandes allegedly confronted Scott McTominay, who was brought into the starting line-up as Erik ten Hag overlooked the need for a right winger.
Meanwhile, it is believed Lisandro Martinez and Victor Lindelof lost it with each other following a poor defensive display from the centre-back pairing.
Like I said above, this is a nothing story but I’ll take some joy in knowing the players are hurting too. They can make amends with a positive result in Bavaria on Wednesday night.
Or is that too much to ask for a side that has been depleted with injuries and investigations?
