Manchester United interim manager, Ralf Rangnick, has admitted there are “unhappy” players in his squad.
However, the German has urged them to be professional, as they look to bounce back from the 1-0 defeat to Wolves.
Rangnick explained the bloated squad he inherited from his predecessor, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, has led to some players being left out in the cold.
“When you have a big squad, in the last two games, we had most players available and only 10 field players can play and three substitutes.
“Then you have quite a number of players who don’t even play or not even in the squad. Those players are unhappy about the situation – it’s obvious, clear.
“I tend to explain to players every two or three weeks why they are not playing and that is an issue in our team and other clubs.
“We have players with contracts expiring in the summer, we have maybe also one or two players who want to leave and are under contract.
“It is about the players dealing with that in a professional way, to show in training, to show up and get a chance to play,” Rangnick told a news conference on Friday.
