Ralf Rangnick is facing his first major challenge as Manchester United’s interim manager as he tries to sort out the dressing room unrest left behind by Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.
According to Chris Wheeler from DailyMail, there have been attitude problems among the team players at Carrington claiming that the mood at the training ground is very low.
United’s players seemed to be struggling to adapt to Rangnick’s later training session.
Reports suggest that there are some ongoing dressing rooms cliques and these have only grown after four-seater booths were installed at their canteen.
The German coach insist to hold training sessions late and United players were left in the dark at 5 pm on Tuesday.
Having criticized their body language in a narrow 1-0 win against the bottom-dwelling Norwich last time out, Rangnick preferred to focus on the lack of physicality against second-form bottom Newcastle.
Ronaldo once again made a hasty exit at the final whistle and questions remain over his lack of chemistry with certain teammates, notably Mason Greenwood.
Former Man United player Gary Neville also hinted at a leadership struggle between Ronaldo and Harry Maguire and it’s understood that the United skipper has been more subdued since Ronaldo returned to the club. Neville had some infuriating comments on the two Portuguese international players.
Rangnick has a very tough task to salvage anything from this season.
United are currently seven points off the Premier League top four. They will look to put up a quality performance to get back on track against Burnley on Thursday.
Rangnick needs to build some characters in the dressing room and needs to find solutions for the upcoming games.
