Manchester United have called on the assistance of former coach, Mike Phelan to help settle the crisis currently rocking the club’s dressing room. Mike Phelan served as assistant to Sir Alex Ferguson during his time as the club manager.
There are currently broken relationships inside the dressing room at Old Trafford, needing immediate attention.
The crisis was said to have been intensified by their Monday’s dismal defeat to Wolves, with interim boss Ralf Rangnick battling a number of internal rifts which threaten to derail their season.
A number of the club’s top players are said to have grown ever more disillusioned at the club since the German’s arrival over his decision to continue selecting certain players in every game regardless of their performances.
According to reports from the Telegraph, the club will now turn to Phelan to ‘build bridges in the dressing room’ which has been divided into cliques.
Phelan, a former Manchester United player, also worked as Ferguson’s assistant for five years until the Scot’s retirement in 2013.
He came back to the club in 2019 to join Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s staff as assistant manager.
The former United midfielder recently held a two-hour talk with the interim boss to advise him on how to unify the dressing room.
The report claims United see Phelan as the ‘ideal man’ to help rid the squad of the harmful cliques that have developed.
