Manchester United Player Speaks Out After Allegations Of Revolt

Manchester United players are reportedly unhappy at the club due to Ralf Rangnick's management, but one of them has hit out at the reports.


Rangnick lost his first match, since taking over from Ole Gunnar Solskjaer in December, when his team went down 1-0 to Wolves on Monday evening.

The defeat was followed by a number of reports about how unhappy players were with his methods, with up to 17 of the squad named as having issues.

Whilst some fans have come out in defence of the manager, with Steve Howson going viral for his spot on analysis of the issues, no player has so far spoken.

However, Brazilian midfielder Fred has now redressed the balance, with the 28-year-old taking to social media to say that he has no issues with the manager.

"Over the past few days I have read several fake news involving my name and other MUFC athletes," the former Shakhtar player took to Twitter to say.

"I'm not in the habit of answering controversial stuff publicly, but this time I will have to.

"I just want to say that I am very happy here and I have never expressed any dissatisfaction and the possibility of leaving the club.

"Don't get misled by fake news. We will continue to work with great dedication to pursue our goals."

Fred has had his issues at Old Trafford, and has never lived up to the £50 million price tag that Jose Mourinho spent on the midfielder in 2018.

The midfielder started Rangnick's reign off in perfect fashion, impressing with his pressing in the German's debut game against Crystal Palace, it was then his brilliant screamer that secured all three points.

However, midfield remains the area of the pitch that fans and pundits alike think United are weakest in and both the Brazil international and partner Scott McTominay have been particularly criticised.

Liverpool legend Steve Nicol recently claimed the pair were not good enough to be starting and making a big enough impact for United.

Rangnick would no doubt love more of his players to come out and make their feelings known, having told Anthony Martial recently to speak up if he wants to leave.

The former RB Leipzig boss would probably like it even more if they started producing performances on the pitch however...
