United really need this season to end

Manchester United’s training session on Thursday had to be ended early after two players were reportedly involved in a ‘scrap’ and needed to be ‘pulled apart’.

As reported by the Sun, the incident occurred towards the end of a training session at the club’s Aon Training Complex on Thursday.

The report adds that the two unnamed players ‘went at it’ and ‘had to be pulled apart’, which led to the session being stopped as the players were ordered back to the changing rooms.

Several players were said to be stunned by the altercation, with interim manager Ralf Rangnick giving his players some more time off with no fixture this weekend.

Rangnick and staff fail to impress

The German had given the squad four days off after their 4-0 thrashing at Brighton last weekend.

As reported by The Athletic, the mood at the Red Devils’ training sessions has been described as “totally flat” as Rangnick’s time in charge comes to an end – adding that sources close to the dressing room gave described the standard as “well below” that of predecessors Michael Carrick and Kieran McKenna.

It also states that the sessions put on by coaches Chris Armas and Ewan Sharp – which were overseen by Rangnick – have not gone down well.

United’s season draws to a close a week on Sunday when they travel to Crystal Palace to face Patrick Vieira’s men at Selhurst Park.

While the Red Devils cannot qualify for the Champions League, their spot in the Europa League is also in danger. If United fail to beat the Eagles, and other results go against them, they could still finish seventh and play in the Europa Conference League next season.
