According to Manchester United fanzine Red Issue, a major dressing room bust up occurred in the aftermath of the 3-0 defeat to Liverpool on Sunday, with an unnamed player branding beleaguered boss David Moyes ‘clueless’, and his coaching staff ‘useless’.
The currently unconfirmed reports claim that the player, who is said to be a senior player, let rip following the humiliating loss at Old Trafford on the weekend, with United’s hopes of a top four finish now all but over.

A Steven Gerrard brace and a goal from Luis Suarez condemned United to yet another defeat at home this season, and while there is no talk of unrest at boardroom level concerning Moyes’ tenure, these latest reports of severe unrest among the playing staff will be hard to take for the struggling United faithful.
They have seen their side drop off the pace at an alarming rate this season, which has prompted many to claim that Premier League title could be beyond them for many years to come, as former City defender Danny Mills told the BBC last night,
“It could be 10 years at least before they win the title again,” Mills told BBC’s Match of the Day 3,
“The whole rebuilding process is going to take three or four years at least.”
“Then you have got to think Manchester City, Chelsea, Liverpool will strengthen – and Tottenham and Arsenal could possibly strengthen as well.”
