Before the 4-1 thrashing to Manchester City back in March, a report from The Times claimed that Manchester United players are ‘privately questioning’ Harry Maguire’s place in the starting XI.
The captain went on to start the Manchester derby and we all know what happened after that.
According to the Daily Mail, that information was leaked by a player, whose identity hasn’t been revealed, leading to a sense of ‘distrust’ in the dressing room.
Players have reportedly identified the ‘poisonous’ teammate behind the leak. Incidentally, the player himself has not impressed with his performances, much like the rest of the team.
It’s one thing for fans to be frustrated with Maguire. However, considering how poor the entire team has been, it’s futile for players to point fingers at each other.
Senior management is also unhappy with the person behind the leak, with some officials feeling the squad is ‘exploiting’ player power at the club.
Meanwhile, it was also reported that United have investigated these leaks and are ‘confident’ it won’t repeat next season.
