Manchester United Players 'Struggling To Adapt' To Later Training Sessions, Low Morale Report Emerges After One Month

Manchester United players are reportedly finding it hard to adapt to later training sessions under interim manager Ralf Rangnick - even leaving Carrington in the dark.

United dropped points for the first time under Rangnick on Monday evening in a dismal 1-1 draw with Newcastle United at St James' Park.

Much was made about the attitude of some players during the game and the Daily Mail have revealed morale is very low within the United squad right now.

Players are said to be unhappy with later training times and left in the dark at 5pm on Tuesday.

Dressing room cliques are forming within the squad and new seating arrangements at Carrington allow for more isolation.

Six four-seater booths have been installed and it means less interaction between a number of players.

United started the season as potential title contenders after signing Jadon Sancho, Raphael Varane and Cristiano Ronaldo over the summer.

But a poor start under former manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer saw him sacked in November after a string of humiliating defeats.

A number of dressing room leaks towards the end of his tenure proved things weren't all rosy at United, despite claims Solskjaer had 'rebooted the club'.

Club legend Gary Neville slammed Ronaldo and Bruno Fernandes on Sky Sports after not clapping the away fans at full-time against Newcastle.

"Something isn’t right in there,’ he claimed. "There is definitely whingeing going on. They are all at each other. The spirit of a dressing room is really important and I don’t think they’re all with each other at the moment."

Ronaldo has stormed down the tunnel a number of times this season, notably against Everton and against Watford, which was Solskjaer's final game in charge.

Fernandes has struggled since Rangnick's arrival and doesn't seem suited to the 63-year-old's preferred 4-2-2-2 formation.

The Portugal international usually played behind the striker under Solskjaer but now finds himself taking wider positions on the pitch.

Rangnick's arrival hasn't done anything to convince those who wanted out to stay either.

Dean Henderson and Eric Bailly are said to be regretting their new contracts and Donny van de Beek is still eager to leave in January.

United are seventh in the Premier League table and sit seven points behind Arsenal in the top four.

They return to action on Thursday night against Burnley.
