What is going on at Manchester United?



What is going on at Manchester United?

Is it high time the media starts asking Manchester United the hard question behind what is really going on behind the scenes?

To quote Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp, “it’s starting to look like a witch is in the building” as Manchester United adds more woes to their existing problems.

Not to get too superstitious, but the recent injury crisis plaguing the Red Devils team has called for closer examination into what the team does in training that has resulted too often injuries to key players.

Just last night, it was confirmed that Centre Back pairs, Lisandro Martinez and Sweden international, Victor Lindelof will be out for no less than one month after both sustained fitness concerns following the 1-1 draw to Brentford and in training.

Lisandro Martinez of course being the consistent figure when it comes to taking the sick bed this season.

The Argentine has so far since his move to Manchester United, tallied a number of appearances on the fitness table than he has in the Manchester United kit on a matchday. Martinez of course isn’t alone as Mason Mount, Sofyan Amrabat, Rasmus Hojlund, Casemiro, Anthony Martial, Luke Shaw, Aaron Wan Bissaka, Harry Maguire, Christen Eriksen and many others have all gone to the fitness table this season at one point or the other.

That’s not leaving the fact that one of Erik ten Hag’s first signing in his debut season, Tyrell Malacia has written himself off the books of Manchester United players as nothing has been heard of the former Ajax star until this day.

The latest injuries come just when the Red Devils are about to face two back to back clashes with two bitter rivals; Chelsea and Liverpool.

Reports according to gossip sources had alleged that the Dutch manager’s intense training regime is the obvious suspect for the worsening situation, however on pitch this season, results have not learnt any credence to Manchester United or even Erik ten Hag doing much to prepare for games.

Instead, the common narrative headlined are sympathetic analysis that the team this season has been marred by injury woes.

Thus, this begs the question; are Manchester United doing too much in training that has resulted in them doing so little when it comes to the real game? Or is something much worse going on behind the scenes?
