Four Man Utd stars in a furious dressing room clash after the nightmare start to the season continued with Brighton’s hammer blows

FOUR Manchester United stars were involved in a furious altercation in the dressing room following their home defeat to Brighton on Saturday.

And United legend Gary Neville claims unhappy players could be “BUGS” who are causing “discomfort and uncertainty” for Erik ten Hag’s problems.

SunSport can reveal captain Bruno Fernandes will face fellow midfielder Scott McTominay following United’s third defeat in four games.

The central defender pairing Lisandro Martinez and Victor Lindelof also lost to each other after a catastrophic defensive performance.

Manager Ten Hag tried to restore order as the post-mortem began in a shocking 3-1 defeat that sparked boos from angry fans.

The 53-year-old Dutch coach has banned Jadon Sancho from first-team training.

Ten Hag – already without Mason Greenwood and Antony after off-field problems – also stripped Harry Maguire of the captaincy and dropped him from his starting XI.

And in a TikTok video, former England full-back Neville said: “How popular is Sancho in the dressing room? How popular is Maguire?

“There are some vermin in Ten Hag that we don’t know from the outside and the discomfort and insecurity that are created inside.

“You have a player who is probably in the first team dressing room but is done with the academy. There’s Harry, who captained these players 12 months ago but has now almost distanced himself from the third, fourth and fifth centre-back teams.


“So Ten Hag has some situations there and I don’t know what damage that does.

“Since Sir Alex Ferguson left there have been many managers, good managers, who have found a challenge at United.

“I hope it’s just a difficult start to the season and not a repeat of what we saw before – where it became a challenge for Jose Mourinho, Louis van Gaal, David Moyes, Ralf Rangnick and Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.”

After their worst start to a Prem season, United next face a Champions League clash at Bayern Munich.

They are in 13th place with just six points from five games.
