A number of current Manchester United players are upset over the criticism meted out by former players such as Rio Ferdinand, Paul Scholes and Gary Neville, according to the Daily Mirror (h/t Metro).

United have made a less than mediocre start to the season, with the team already seven points behind the pace at the top. Furthermore, we are out of the Carabao Cup as well.

The report claims that some players have shared the clips of the United legends criticising and pointing out mistakes. And the players are shocked that the legends do not care for the club.

Scholes has been a vocal critic of not only the players but of Jose Mourinho too. The report adds that some players believe the criticism has been excessive and think the former United players are scared of getting on the wrong side of Mourinho.

Mourinho and his players haven’t had the greatest of relationships this season either. Paul Pogba and the manager were caught on camera having a bit of a dispute, while Anthony Martial was fined (h/t Manchester Evening News) for missing a part of the pre-season due to the birth of his child.
