Man Utd duo ‘separate’ as teammates remain stunned by training ground collapse

Ralf Rangnick has reportedly been forced to halt a Manchester United training session after two players were involved in a meltdown forcing them apart

Reports say Rangnick cut the session short

Two Manchester United players were reportedly involved in a crisis at the training ground which forced caretaker manager Ralf Rangnick to end their session early on Thursday.

It was claimed by The Sun that the unnamed pair were involved in a ‘complete farm’ towards the end of the Red Devils training session. Rangnick reportedly reacted by ordering the rest of United’s ‘stunned’ squad to return to the locker room at their Carrington training complex.

Despite their humiliating 4-0 loss to Brighton & Hove Albion last Saturday, the 63-year-old has given his side four days off, with the Red Devils only returning to action on the final day of the season next Sunday. However, tensions reportedly boiled over on their return, with the feuding teammates set to be separated.

Rangnick will take charge of his final game as boss against Crystal Palace and the trip to Selhurst Park will mark the end of what is guaranteed to be the worst Premier League campaign for England’s 20-time champions in terms of points. The famous German coach will then make way for Erik ten Hag, who is expected to say goodbye to Ajax this weekend during his visit to Vitesse.

Ten Hag wrapped up his third Eredivisie title in four full terms on Wednesday with an emphatic 5-0 win over Heerenveen, as the 51-year-old said emotionally: “I’ve worked with so many great people, in especially the players. We’ve done so many great things together. But there is a time to leave.

Also speaking to Voetbal International post-match, Ten Hag revealed the moment that decided to leave Amsterdam. “It was not that long ago. In fact, only after the discussions with Man Utd, which only started during the last international break, at the end of March,” explained the Dutch tactician. “These conversations were so good that I had the feeling: I want to take on this challenge.

“Then it started to come to life in my head and I made the decision to leave Ajax.” Ten Hag added: “It was a tough but great challenge. It’s the greatest thing ever. There’s something to build at United and something to win. Manchester United are such a big name in the football history challenge to put the club back on the winning track.

“Old Trafford is nicknamed the Theater of Dreams for a reason. It’s a club with a name, fame and allure in international football. Everyone knows the history of great teams. From Sir Alex Ferguson of course, but also further back in time: the great team of the late fifties, which suddenly disappeared with the plane crash.

“The story is impressive, but I also started to dive into the present and the future. And the options that are available. They are there, also financially. If you also have a good idea of ​​the people there, then the image is good and then the factors are present to take this step.

“I know that Manchester United went through a very careful procedure. They also knew a lot about me. They had done scouting, done analysis, collected data, had interviews with people who had worked with me. Several rounds of discussions followed So they didn’t decide overnight, neither did I.
