LONDON: The split is increasingly being felt in Manchester United’s dressing room as the club look to qualify for the Champions League with some players unhappy with Ralf Rangnick and the selection of players by him.
The Manchester Evening News named Eric Bailly and Marcus Rashford as two players increasingly frustrated with life under Rangnick while claiming some United stars labeled a player a ‘favorite player’ for often playing under the German operator.
It also claimed players complained about Rangnick’s qualifications despite feeling unhappy with his training pattern. The main trophy of his career was the German Cup in 2011 with Schalke.
Bailly was reportedly disappointed with captain Harry Maguire who suffered a decline in performance but still started the match compared to himself.
The Ivory Coast international has made just seven appearances for United this season and was placed on the bench in the 4-1 defeat to Manchester City despite Raphael Varane testing positive for COVID-19.
Maguire’s performances have often been the focus and he once again failed during the defeat at the hands of City.
Meanwhile, it is understood Rashford is thinking about his future at United.
Sportsmail reported yesterday that the England international has only 18 months left on his contract and is thinking about his future ahead of the summer transfer phase.
He has not started in the Premier League since February 12 although Cristiano Ronaldo and Edinson Cavani were on the injured list ahead of the meeting with City.
The press also named Diogo Dalot as another unhappy star at United.
The Portugal international started just eight games before losing his place to Aaron Wan-Bissaka in a 4-2 win over Leeds.
Wan-Bissaka continued to be given a place in United’s starting line-up despite only winning a draw at home to Watford before losing to City.
