DIMITAR BERBATOV has told club captains Harry Maguire and Cristiano Ronaldo to ‘resolve it’ amid ongoing claims.
Reports suggest that the pair are feuding over who will carry the captaincy for the rest of the season.
But both Maguire and the interim manager Ralf Rangnick has declared trash of a rift.
Maguire was on Twitter and said: “I have seen a lot of reports about this club that are not true and this is another club.
“Not going to start posting about everything that’s been written but I need to make this clear. We’re united and focused on Sunday. Have a nice day everyone.”
The Bulgarian has told the couple that if there’s a problem, ‘talk it directly and work it out’ as it’s an unwanted distraction.

“Harry said it wasn’t. I hope he’s right.
“But if something happens then I hope they can talk face-to-face and work it out.
“What is certain is that this is not what United need right now. United are fighting for a place in the top four that they need to achieve.
“Nobody needs to talk about this in the middle of the season.”
Berbatov acknowledged the case that Ronaldo had the captain’s armband, saying he had ‘experienced everything in the game.’
But at the same time, Maguire does not like to ‘run away’ from the responsibility of wearing the captain’s armband.
He continued: “Obviously Ronaldo is an icon in football, he’s done it all and when you have a player like this on your side you need to use him, consult him. and listen to what he has to say.
“He leads by example in training and the way he plays.
“There’s a point for Ronaldo being captain because he’s been through everything in the game.
“On the other hand, Maguire is captain and, ok, he may have had a strangely bad game, but I don’t think he wants to abdicate that responsibility.
“If there’s anything in there, they’ve got to come together, sit down, talk to each other and the steward and just have the king sort it out!”
