Manchester United players express anger at the club for treatment of teammate


Manchester United have an embarrassment of riches at the goalkeeper position.

Their number one between the sticks is David de Gea. Despite some blips in recent times, he remains one of the most reputable goalkeepers in world football.

De Gea’s backup is Dean Henderson. The English youngster was one of the Premier League’s best last season for Sheffield United.

And their third-choice goalkeeper is Sergio Romero. The Argentine is probably good enough to start for most teams in the Premier League. He is without doubt the best third-choice goalkeeper in world football.

So it comes as no surprise that Romero was agitating for a move away from United this summer.


Romero was linked with a move to a whole host of clubs including West Ham and Everton but a move never materialised.

According to ESPN, United were holding out for £10m and refused to let him leave for a penny less.

That led to his wife ranting on Instagram about their lack of respect for the Argentine.

And it appears that his wife isn’t the only person that is unhappy about how he has been treated by United.

That’s because ESPN claim a number of United’s players have expressed their disappointment about how their teammate has been treated.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and Sergio Romero

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer ‘surprised’ the dressing room when he omitted Romero from the FA Cup semifinal against Chelsea and Europa League semifinal against Sevilla last season.

The Norwegian also left Romero out of his squad for this season’s Champions League, with 37-year-old Lee Grant taking his place instead.

Those decisions have led members of United’s dressing room to express their sympathy with Romero’s situation. They feel he has been unfairly frozen out after five years with the club.


Romero is a very solid goalkeeper. As aforementioned, he is good enough to be first-choice at a few Premier League clubs.


Fair enough, he isn’t as good as De Gea and Henderson. So why do United feel the need to keep him at the club against his will?

He’s been a good servant for the club so he should be granted the right to leave the club should he want to.

It’s not as if he has contributing anything at the moment anyway, so United are basically paying him just to turn up to training every day.

Fair play to the United players that raised their concerns and stood up for him.
