According to the Manchester Evening News, Ralf Rangnick’s player selection strategy is causing resentment among Man United players in the dressing room.
Some fringe players are very bitter over how they’re being completely ignored over a direct rival to their position.
One anonymous player has described a teammate as a ‘teacher’s pet’ because of their regular appearances
Another unnamed player struggling for minutes is becoming jealous of the attention the competitors in their position receive.
Marcus Rashford, for one, is concerned over his lack of playing time and he was bemused to be among the substitutes for the Manchester Derby.
Eric Bailly is also irked by how consistently Harry Maguire gets to start games over him and is open to leaving in the summer.
Diogo Dalot is also surprised by his withdrawal from the starting XI after starting eight consecutive matches at right-back in recent months.
One dressing room source has admitted the players find it ‘bizarre’ over how the season has unraveled and some players acknowledge the blame can’t fully be put on Rangnick.
