Pundit issues Man United dressing room unrest claim amid Harry Maguire reveal

Frank McAvennie has claimed that an acceptance of poor performances is “embedded” in the Man United dressing room.

Speaking exclusively to Football Insider, the former West Ham striker said none of the players in the United team have been playing well.

The Red Devils lost 4-0 to Brentford on Saturday (13 August).

According to the Manchester Evening News (15 August), there was a “huge” argument in the dressing room at the club’s Carrington training ground on Thursday (11 August).

The decision to keep Harry Maguire as captain is said to be disputed by several members of the squad, including a number of high profile players.

The second defeat in a row for Erik ten Hag marks the worst start to a season for United in 30 years.

McAvennie suggested that the players seem to be accepting of the lacklustre position at the club.

Maybe it’s embedded in the dressing room now, this acceptance,” he told Football Insider.

It looks as if there’s an acceptance from the players that United aren’t going to do anything. You can’t do that.

You can turn things round very quickly. I’d be delighted if all these players came out and proved me wrong. None of the players have been playing well, you can go through the whole team at Man United.

There’s players who have been there for a lot of years. [Marcus] Rashford and [Anthony] Martial were playing well when the team were playing well. That shows you the character of the team.
