Man United boss Louis Van Gaal has revealed that some of his senior players came to him to tell him of the problems in the dressing room.
Reports this week have suggested that there is growing unrest within the squad and that there have been problems during training.
However, Van Gaal has moved to clear up the situation by revealing to the media that captains Wayne Rooney and Michael Carrick came to him to discuss the issues and to resolve them.
“Rooney and Carrick came to me and said the dressing room is flat,” he told the assembled media.
“They told me because they wanted to help me. I communicate not only with my captains, but they tried to warn me.
“I then went to my dressing room and discussed this with my players, and we discussed a lot of aspects, but not what some have written.
“Maybe you have to consider how many players are coming to the manager to say something. In my career, I didn’t have so many who come to say something about the atmosphere in the dressing room or the way we train.
“But it is very positive that they are coming to you and that they trust you. I think I have a superb relationship with my players.”
Van Gaal added that some players have even come to him to apologise for reports in the media, and that he believes that the supporters and players are satisfied with the direction in which the club is moving.
However, following the defeat to Swansea prior to the international break, he will be under pressure to deliver a result when the Red Devils take on rivals Liverpool on Saturday.
