United believe someone is leaking information

Manchester United have begun a hunt to find a “leak” in their dressing room after fresh claims about Erik ten Hag and Cristiano Ronaldo emerged.

Ronaldo left United in November 2022 after he publicly attacked Ten Hag and the club during an explosive interview with Piers Morgan.

A number of claims have come out about what went on behind the scenes but TalkSPORT presenter and former United striker Alan Brazil revealed that some players were left “disgusted” by the way the Dutchman treated Ronaldo.

He said: “I was hearing, and you have to be careful what you report on – this is only what I heard from a United player who told someone I know very well. He said the players are not having the manager – definitely not.

“By all accounts, they were disgusted by the way they treated Cristiano Ronaldo and they say [Jadon] Sancho’s a great guy. He works his socks off.”

Brazil added: “He said the players are not having him. Not having him.”

Last week it was reported that United were keeping tabs on an anonymous account on X that had been leaking first team news, injuries and talk of unrest behind closed doors.

As revealed by the Mail Online, the account raised suspicion at the club having gained a large audience in a short space of time as well as its accuracy on the news it was delivering.

A club insider told the paper: “Preparation for games these days is so thorough that leaked information about team line-ups and injuries can give the opposition an advantage to exploit.

“United fans should be hounding out these accounts that routinely leak this kind of information, and questioning what is their motivation for doing it.”
