Manchester United are once again entering a very difficult period, from which they have only ever escaped in the last 10 years with a change in coaching. However, it is the coach that they are now trying to protect, as they have banned 4 journalists from their press conference after the news broke that Erik ten Hag had lost half of his cabinet.
Manchester United have started this season as badly as they did last year. In the Champions League, in a relatively playable group, they won only once in 5 games. And that was saved 3 points at the very end by Andre Onan’s penalty.
In the EFL Cup, the Red Devils only reached the second round, where they faced a stronger Newcastle. The same team was behind their 6th league defeat this season. Manchester United are now 7th in the Premier League. But that’s definitely a great position for the kind of performances they put on the pitch.
So it’s no wonder the media is hitting Manchester United from all sides. Now, however, Sky Sports reporter Kaveh Solhekol has gone even further by reporting that ten Hag has lost half of his cabin.
So he reported on what Red Devils fans have been observing on the pitch for some time now. Perhaps after every game lately, the talk is that the players look completely disengaged during the game.
The crown was put on it on Saturday’s game against Newcastle by Anthony Martial, who argued directly with coach ten Hag during the game. But he is far from the only Red Devils player who is like that.
Manchester United were quick to respond
The club’s management reacted to this speculation about problems inside Old Trafford by banning 4 journalists from today’s press conference for the upcoming game against Chelsea.
“We are taking action against a number of news organisations, not for publishing what we don’t like, but for not contacting us first to give us the opportunity to comment, challenge or put it into context.
We believe that this is an important principle that needs to be defended and we hope that it will lead to a new way of setting up our cooperation,” the club said.
