Manchester United ‘have tasked Mike Phelan with unifying the dressing room’ at Old Trafford with as many as SEVENTEEN first-team players currently unhappy at the club

  • The interim boss has failed so far to drastically improve fortunes on the pitch 
  • It is reported that many stars inside the Old Trafford dressing room are unhappy 

Mike Phelan has been handed in the unenviable task of unifying the Manchester United dressing room.

And Sportsmail revealed on Wednesday evening that as many as seventeen first-team stars at Old Trafford are unhappy at the club.

All this has led to the need for United to find immediate solutions, and according to reports they have found one in the form of Phelan.

According to the Mirror, Phelan has been asked by Rangnick himself to speak to players as a whole and indiviudally in a bid to bring stars back onto the same page. 

Phelan is a respected and well-established figure at the club, having acted as a No 2 for Sir Alex Ferguson, as well as Ole Gunnar Solskjaer. 

United fell to defeat for the first time since Ralf Rangnick took the interim role against Wolves 

Rangnick has become aware of the situation following a series of meeting with players to discuss their futures.

Anthony Martial will leave on loan this month if Sevilla improve their opening loan offer, and is set to move permanently in the summer.

Paul Pogba and Jesse Lingard have shown no inclination to renew their contracts which are due to run out at the end of June, enabling both to leave on free transfers and deal United a huge financial blow.
