Former Manchester United deputy boss Rene Meulensteen has called the club’s current squad ‘lost’ amid frequent reports of disharmony in the dressing room.

The Red Devils have endured a terrible season in which they failed to qualify for the Champions League. The final low came on Saturday when they were humbled by a 4-0 defeat by Brighton.

Her campaign was met with near-continuous reports of discontent from the dressing room. This disharmony is unlike the environment Meulensteen helped create during his six years as one of Sir Alex Ferguson’s assistants.

Given how far United have fallen since their hugely successful stint at Old Trafford, Meulensteen has now looked to beat the current group of stars. He believes they have struggled to live up to expectations and accuses them of looking “lost”.

“There were a lot of expectations, including from myself. When Ronaldo comes in, he only comes in for one reason and that is to improve the team and basically make United challenging again,” he told talkSPORT.

“They were second in the league so no reason to think otherwise. For some reason there was a lack of consistency early in the season and performances faltered.

“The season has derailed more and more. You saw the frustration it was when they were eliminated from that competition, then eliminated from the FA Cup and then lost ground in the league.

“They changed managers and Rangnick came in. Rangnick’s influence hasn’t delivered what everyone expected to push into the top four and the Champions League is so important. They have derailed and irritation has turned into frustration.

“When I see United play, I see a losing team. You are completely lost. There is no cohesion, no organization, no structure, there is nothing fundamental that you need for a successful performance.”

Meulensteen also accused the United dressing room of not having the pride needed to properly represent the club. He believes the frequent reports of dissatisfaction have caused the seasons to turn into a disaster.

“The most important thing when you sign for a club is to represent it with pride. We know that some of the players who have come on board have never really committed themselves to the club. Then you get fed these rumors through the media that he’s not ‘happy’ and this or that player wants to leave,” added the Dutchman.

“If you have a very solid dressing room and those players want to be there together in the dressing room, they want to do well together and fight for each other. But when you have people in there who don’t really want to be there, you can feel it. You can feel it and it affects the performances.”
