Four Man Utd stars ‘unhappy’ with Rangnick as teammate nicknamed ‘teacher’s pet’

Division and frustration continue to happen at Manchester United with one player labelling a teammate a ‘teacher’s pet’ as current malaise deepens.

United’s campaign suffered another huge blow as they were thrashed 4-1 by Manchester City at the Etihad on Sunday, slipping out of the top four as a result.




Roy Keane and Gary Neville were among the former United stars to slam the attitudes and application of the current team where a number of issues continue to cause major problems.

While Donny van de Beek and Anthony Martial were among those allowed to leave the club on loan in January, fringe players in the squad have still ‘expressed bitterness’ at being overlooked by Rangnick, according to the Manchester Evening News.




The report claims one player described a teammate as a ‘teacher’s pet’ due to his regular game time under the German. Another has grown increasingly jealous of the attention his rivals for a starting spot in the team have received.

Some members of the squad are still very much unsatisfied with Rangnick’s methods and have derided his accomplishments in the game.

The German manager’s only major triumph is a German Cup success in 2011 having largely taken up director roles over the last decade.

The report also claims Eric Bailly is among the couple of players unhappy with the situation with the defender ‘irked’ by Harry Maguire’s persistent presence in the starting lineup.




Diogo Dalot is also said to be shocked to have found himself out of the team again with Henderson still unhappy with his place in the pecking order behind David de Gea.

Marcus Rashford meanwhile is already considering his future at Old Trafford due to his lack of minutes, having started just two of the last 11 league matches.
