De Gea rubbishes claims of United player discord

David De Gea has made it vehemently clear that the Manchester United dressing room is undivided.

Reports earlier in the week suggested that the Red Devils players had challenged manager Louis Van Gaal in the wake of their 2-1 loss to Bournemouth on the weekend.

It is believed that the United squad are unhappy with the Dutchman’s tactics with some senior players having openly questioned him regarding their style of play.

But goalkeeper De Gea has played down those suggestions, stating that everything in the United dressing room is above board and that everybody is working together to ensure the fourth-placed side achieves the best results possible.

“There’s a great atmosphere. The dressing room is very together and united, they are a great set of lads and we’re all very happy with the group of players that we have and I think that’s really important in a team if it wants to achieve big things,” the Spaniard told Inside United.

“I think we have a very young side and I think that the youngsters who are coming up through the youth ranks are fitting in really well.”

“They are all good players and after all they represent the future of Manchester United and I reckon that gradually they will become the side of the future and we’re all delighted that they’re with us.”

“We know that the month of December is always a tough one with a lot of fixtures, and the tiredness can build up, so we need to come out of it at the end with a few good results.”

“We’re working on it right now.”

“We’re training hard and we’re preparing well so we can go into those games at our highest level of fitness in order to get through December well-placed near the top of the league.”
