Marcus Rashford Responds To Claims He's Irritated With Cristiano Ronaldo

Another day, another story from inside the Manchester United dressing room.

The roof at Old Trafford might be leaky but it's nowhere near as bad as they players inside the ground, with Gary Neville recently revealing he knows who it is.

Barely a day goes by without a story of some sort of unrest at United coming out in the press, not helped by the club's recent poor run of results.

Having failed to win in the previous three games, including getting knocked out of the FA Cup, Ralf Rangnick's team finally earned all three points against Brighton on Tuesday night.

Whilst the performance was far from perfect, getting back to winning ways and going into fourth place again should have provided a bit of respite from the usual negative headlines.

However that's not lasted all too long, with new reports that some United players having become 'irritated' by Cristiano Ronaldo.

According to Bild writer Christian Falk, the likes of Harry Maguire and Marcus Rashford have become annoyed with the forward and his attempts to 'lead the dressing room with his own clique.'

Ronaldo has previously questioned his younger teammates' work ethic and attitudes this season, with his words initially getting plenty of praise.

However his own behaviour for United has been questioned, with the five time Ballon d'Or winner showing angry reactions to getting brought off and also at the end of games, by storming down the tunnel.

The latest report seems to be more about a clique of players, that Ronaldo is in, along with Diogo Dalot, Fred, Alex Telles and Bruno Fernandes, the squad's Portuguese speaking players.

The English speaking players clearly aren't happy with the set up and are 'irritated' by the whole thing, leading to more locker room unrest.

However, in a twist to the story, Rashford has hit out at the reports, claiming that they are actually 'made up' and that people are just 'looking for divides.'

With so many reports coming out of Old Trafford at the moment, and with the way the team continue to play, it is tough to work out what is true.

Ronaldo's own performances, and reaction during the Southampton game, have led fans to claim he has become broken at United, and that his relationship with Rangnick is non existent.

Despite his recent goal drought, the 37-year-old remains United's top scorer in the league this season, and his goals leave him equal fourth in the league.

However his return to the club, 12 years after leaving for Real Madrid, hasn't been the complete success that many thought it might be.

Three of Europe's top sides are reportedly interested in signing the former Juventus forward at the end of the season, and you have to think he'd want to join them if United miss out on a Champions League spot.
