At the end of a catastrophic season, Manchester United must deal with strong tensions in their group. Two players came to blows during a training session on Thursday. New proof, if need be, that everything is wrong with the Red Devils.
It really is time for the season to end for Manchester United. While he had great ambitions last summer, especially after the return of Cristiano Ronaldo, the Mancunian club saw a complicated exercise to say the least. It’s simple, nothing is going well with the Red Devils, who will not play in the Champions League next season. An inevitable sanction for their clearly insufficient level of performance on a collective and individual level.

Feelings of frustration and anger therefore invaded the locker room, which ended up exploding this week. According to information from the Sun, two experienced players came to blows in training! The tabloid speaks of a violent scene between the two elements concerned, who had to be separated by their teammates. An incident so shocking for the witnesses that manager Ralf Rangnick and his technical staff had to end the training session and send everyone back to the locker room. All while the group came out of a four-day rest after the stinging defeat at Brighton (4-0) last Saturday.
A final goal for MU
Apparently, this was not enough to calm these two players whose identity has not yet filtered. But if the information is confirmed, there is no doubt that the English press will not be long in communicating their names. Anyway, even if the initial objective is definitively lost, Manchester United must still save a place in the Europa League, or in the Conference League. Ralf Rangnick therefore has every interest in restoring serenity before going to challenge Crystal Palace next weekend, during the last day of the Premier League.
