After suffering third loss in five games, Manchester United’s locker room drama intensifies ahead of Bayern Munich UCL clash

After enduring their third loss in five games, tensions in Manchester United’s locker room have reached a boiling point, resulting in a physical altercation between Bruno Fernandes and Scott McTominay on one side and Emiliano Martinez and Victor Lindelof on the other. This incident has only added to the ongoing drama, as they prepare for their upcoming UEFA Champions League clash against Bayern Munich.

Not withstanding their recent woes on and off the pitch, the Red Devils have recently received an injury boost with Kobbie Mainoo, Mason Mount, and Sofiyan Amrabat returning to training with the team ahead of the Champions League clash against Bayern Munich.

United players involved in a heated altercation after loss to Brighton

Out of 15 obtainable points, Manchester United have only realized six this season. Erik Ten Hag’s side have had three losses in five matches, and their recent loss was at Old Trafford against Brighton, courtesy of strikes from Danny Welbeck, Pascal Gross, and Joao Pedro. Hannibal Mejbri scored a late consolation goal for the Red Devils.

Manchester United has not only been losing on the field. Lately, they’ve been struggling off the pitch as well. Antony and Jadon Sancho have been sidelined indefinitely following a criminal allegation and ‘insubordination’, respectively. There are also a number of injured first-team players. Some of whom will be out of the team for months.

Following the Brighton game, tempers flared in the United changing room. The Sun reported that club captain Bruno Fernandes featured in a brawl with Scott McTominay as Lindelof and Martinez had their own disagreement.

Ten Hag attempted to reassure and calm the players as the Dutchman began to analyze what he observed from his team during the match against in-form Brighton. Brighton had an impressive start to the season, securing victories in four of their first five league games.

It has been a season of injuries for several first-team Manchester United players. The latest to join the list is Aaron Wan-Bissaka, who will be out for weeks after suffering a hamstring injury and being taken out in the Brighton game.

However, the likes of Mason Mount and Kobbie Minoo, who have been away for a while now, may return to the lineup, as they’ve been pictured training with the team today, ahead of the clash against Bayern Munich.

As reported by the Mirror, Sofyan Amrabat, who picked up a minor injury on his International duty in Morocco, has also been seen training privately ahead of tomorrow’s Champion’s League clash.

Notwithstanding the good improvements in the United team, Bayern Munich remains a formidable opponent. They have also had their share of good news, with Kingsley Coman and Joshua Kimmich reportedly back from injury.

Thomas Tuchel stressed: “Joshua had an inflamed tendon, and we didn’t want to take any risk with him,” said Tuchel. “The medical team clearly said he could only play 60 minutes, and that’s why we brought him off in the 60th minute.”

Therefore, the duel between Manchester United and Bayern Munich is set to be a blockbuster on Wednesday night, as both teams will line up at relatively full capacity. What are your predictions regarding the match? Share your thoughts with us in the comments.
