Pressure pile on Erik Ten Hag following dressing room bust-up report, compounding Manchester United’s miserable atmosphere

Manchester United have not had the best start to their season. With a string of poor performances and defeats, manager Erik Ten Hag is under heavy pressure after spending a lot of money this summer.

Furthermore, the team is also not in the best of conditions, with many of the club’s players embroiled in controversies off the pitch. This has affected both the performances on the pitch as well as the image of the club in the media. The atmosphere around and inside the club is now very negative. And now all this has resulted in a very bad incident in the dressing room.

Report: Four Manchester United players involved in dressing room altercation

Manchester United continued their poor start to the season with yet another defeat to Brighton on Saturday. Brighton completely dominated the Red Devils at Old Trafford, and the score line at the end was 3-1. United’s only goal was scored by teenage sensation Hannibal Mejbri. The loss was their third in the last five games, and fans booed the players and manager after the game.

Apparently, after the heavy defeat, there was a big altercation involving four players in the dressing room. According to the Sun, the players involved were captain Bruno Fernandes, Scott McTominay, Lisandro Martinez, and Victor Lindelof.

The source further said that Bruno had picked out midfielder Scott McTominay in the dressing room. Additionally, Lisandro Martinez and Victor Lindelof, who had been the center backs for the game, also verbally assaulted each other. The incident required manager Erik Ten Haag to intervene and put a stop to it. It is still unknown what the full extent of the altercations were.

Manchester United’s miserable early season

Manchester United have had other problems off the pitch as well. With Mason Greenwood finally getting game time at Getafe, many thought the controversies would stop. But then several allegations against Brazilian forward Antony started surfacing. He was accused by three different women, including his girlfriend of having assaulted them. This led to much backlash, and he is currently suspended from the team.

Another star winger, Jadon Sancho, is also banished from the team. He had publicly defended himself after his manager openly claimed that he was not training properly. This led to a fallout between the pair.

With many injuries also plaguing the team, such as those of Sofyan Amrabat and Raphael Varane, Erik is not getting the best out of his team. This has led to United losing crucial games against Tottenham, Arsenal, and Brighton, and now they are in 13th place in the Premier League with just six points.

Erik Ten Hag’s troubles haven’t ended yet, as they will face Bundesliga champions Bayern Munich in their opening UCL game on Wednesday. What are your predictions for the match? Tell us in the comments section.
