Man Utd stars have concerns over ‘too basic and very British’ training approach

Manchester United players are reportedly unhappy with the level of training.

Manchester United players have concerns over the current training ground set up and believe the coaching is ‘too basic’ and ‘very British’. There are also concerns over Kieran McKenna’s influence and players reportedly fear he has too much control.

McKenna is first team coach for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer but the Mirror report that United players are concerned about his regimes and feel the technical coaching is not up to scratch.

United had an initial boost after Solskjaer replaced Jose Mourinho in December 2018, but have struggled since he was appointed to the job full time.

United are seventh in the table after 25 games this season, below Sheffield United and level on points with Wolves.

Solskjaer has come under pressure but appears to still have the faith of Ed Woodward.

But the players are seemingly less convinced by the current regime.

United have won one of their last five games – a 4-0 win over Norwich – and are six points back from the top four despite Chelsea’s struggles.

With 35 points they are a stunning 38 points behind runaway leaders Liverpool.

Bruno Fernandes is the first foreign player signed since Solskjaer took over while there have been a host of exits, including Romelu Lukaku, Ander Herrera, Alexis Sanchez and Marcos Rojo.

The likes of Nemanja Matic, Juan Mata and Anthony Martial are all uncertain of their futures as well, with some players believing domestic players are preferred.

Solskjaer last week insisted it was important for him to get rid of players who don’t fit the club culture.

“I’ve been asked to do this job,” Solskjaer said. “I think the fans see what we’re trying to do and it had to be done.

“As I’ve said last week, three weeks ago, four weeks ago, five weeks ago – it’s a rebuild.

“We’ve got players here now who will go that extra yard, that culture I want to set, that’s the Man United culture.

“I know we’re not in the Sir Alex Ferguson era, but the players that we have, they have the right mentality and they’re good personalities.

“That, for me, is the first tick. You don’t stay here if you don’t give everything to this team.”
