Erik ten Hag has lost "more than half of the Man United dressing room", damning report claims
| Last updated
Manchester United manager Erik ten Hag has lost "50 per cent of the dressing room", a new report claims.
The Red Devils are now in seventh place, nine points behind league leaders Arsenal after 14 games.
The result continued a wretched away record for Ten Hag, who has just one point from 11 matches against the top nine clubs in the league.
With United heading out of the Champions League, pressure continues to mount on Ten Hag.
And Kaveh Solhekol has been sharing information on how the players view Ten Hag at present.
Speaking on Sky Sports, he claimed that the dressing room is split and the exile of Jadon Sancho is a factor in the situation.
But that's not all. Many United players are said to be unhappy with the style of play deployed and believe they are doing too much needless running during training sessions.

There are also questions over his man-management skills and how stubborn the former Ajax boss is.
Solhekol explained: “Some senior players have spoken to Erik ten Hag about where they feel the club is going wrong. They've spoken to him about their other experiences of playing for big clubs, and they feel that the manager should be a little bit more touchy-feely.
“They feel his man-management could be a little bit better, but Erik ten Hag is the boss and he's the one who calls the shots. He is not for turning. He is going to do things his way.
"I've also been told that a few of the players believe that he is too set in his ways and he's too robotic.”
United return to action on Wednesday with a massive clash against Chelsea at Old Trafford in what could be a pivotal game for Ten Hag.
