Cristiano Ronaldo leads 'Man Utd player revolt' against manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer

The situation around van de Beek in particular appears to be on the cusp of giving Solskjaer a major headache.

The United squad are reportedly said to be confused at why the Dutchman hasn’t been given a real opportunity, whilst Old Trafford’s thunderous reaction to the midfielder’s introduction as a late substitute is the clearest hint yet that some United fans are on the cusp of turning against Solskjaer.

Although that will be a concern, the more pressing issue for the United boss will be using the international break to do whatever he can to keep his squad onside.
