MANCHESTER UNITED players exchanged embarrassing messages in their group chat ahead of the 7-0 defeat by Liverpool.
United conceded six goals in the second half as they collapsed hopelessly at Anfield.
The defeat left them 14 points behind Premier League leaders Arsenal and nine behind Manchester City in second place.
However, prior to the Liverpool demolition, the United squad were WhatsApping each other about the possibility of winning the quadruple.
The Daily Mail claim the players have been talking about taking the league’s top two, although that may now seem like a step too far.
United remain in the hunt for the Europa League and FA Cup this season to add to their Carabao Cup trophy.
They meet Spanish club Real Betis in the round of 16 in Europe and they play Fulham at Old Trafford in the quarter-finals of the FA Cup.
The report also suggests that despite the defeat that brought Man Utd back to earth with a bang, manager Erik ten Hag stressed he didn’t want the result to ruin their campaign.
The boss is expected to punish players for poor performance and he allegedly silenced his team and listened to the celebratory noise from the Liverpool dressing room.
He also called the players to the Carrington training ground at 9am the day after the loss to analyze the game and infuriate them, with Ten Hag being there from 7am.
