Despite an unfounded assertion from Jesse Lingard, Manchester United interim manager Ralf Rangnick has stated that there is no serious problem with the club’s dressing room.
Former Red Devils player Paul Scholes said during Saturday’s 3-1 loss to Arsenal that Lingard had told him the club’s dressing room was a “disaster”.
Rangnick declined to state that there was a completely unified dressing room, where “the players got along fairly well”, in the German’s words.
“I don’t know, you have to ask Jesse Lingard,” Rangnick told reporters.
“Obviously, after matches like today, there is a lot of disappointment in the dressing room. That’s normal for me.
“But I think the whole group gets along reasonably well, and I wouldn’t dare say they get along well with each other. But I don’t see a problem with the dressing room.”
