Manchester United goalkeeper David De Gea has dismissed talk of any dressing room unrest at Old Trafford and insists there’s a “great atmosphere” within the club.
Reports on Wednesday morning claimed that senior stars at the club had questioned Louis van Gaal’s tactics after Saturday’s embarrassing 2-1 defeat to Bournemouth.
That came just a week after claims that players were unhappy with Van Gaal’s methods – although Maroune Fellaini insisted the players were “total trust” in the Dutchman.
And now De Gea has played down talk of unrest within the squad and insisted the dressing room is ‘united’ despite the poor run of results.
He told Inside United: “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.
“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.”
