‘I’m sure he will not mind’

Paul Scholes has remarkably revealed a conversation with Jesse Lingard in which Manchester United midfielder described the locker room as a “disaster”.

Another season below par from United is about to run out, exacerbated by Saturday’s 3-1 defeat to Arsenal. The Red Devils improved in the attack from the 4-0 loss to Liverpool on Tuesday.

In the end, however, Arsenal punished the visitors in a controversial affair at both ends.

The result went Man Utd sixth in the Premier League table. Interim boss Ralf Rangnick therefore admitted that a top-4 ranking is now highly unlikely.

Meanwhile, midfielder Scott McTominay hit a lack of faith from the players against the Gunners. And criticism of the locker room from experts like Scholes has been frequent and hard-hitting.

Speaking before the latest result, Scholes actually revealed a conversation with Lingard, who is set to leave Old Trafford at the end of the season when his contract expires.

“It’s an absolute mess,” the former United star said DAZN.

“It’s a disaster in a locker room. I had a quick chat with Jesse the other day and I’m sure he would not mind telling me that the locker room is just a disaster.”

Rangnick was therefore asked about Lingard’s reported comments after the match. The manager insisted that there were no problems with his dressing room – but that it was not the most harmonious group.

“I do not know, you have to ask Jesse Lingard if you have this information,” the German said.

– It is clear that after matches like today or the matches in Liverpool or Everton there is massive disappointment in the locker room.

“This is normal. It would be a problem if it was different, so it’s normal for me. I think the whole group is fair to each other.

“I dare not say that they are well with each other, but I do not see that there is a problem with the mood in the dressing room.”

Man Utd situation worsens after Arsenal

United revealed on Thursday that Erik ten Hag will be their new manager from next season.

However, the fourth defeat in seven matches has only made the size of the task the Dutchman faces more clear.

Lingard is one of those players whose contracts expire at the end of the season.

And while Ten Hag could therefore spray money out on new signatures, experts such as Scholes has urged the club to take more care with signings to ensure they can build from a solid base under their new coach.
