Manchester United Players Unhappy with Club’s Treatment of Sergio Romero

Sergio Romero Unhappy

A number of Manchester United players are reportedly disappointed with how the club have handled Sergio Romero and his situation, according to ESPN. The 33-year-old has emerged as a popular figure in United’s dressing room during his five years with the club, but now finds himself as third choice goalkeeper.

Despite, falling down the pecking order at United, a whole host of clubs were after the Argentine’s signature. In fact, early Premier League front-runners Everton, were close to striking a deal with Romero, before the deadline last week.

Sergio Romero’s Situation at Manchester United has Left Players Unhappy

A lack of Respect Shown by Manchester United Towards Romero

The 2019/20 campaign followed a similar path to past seasons. Romero remained a substitute during the league games, but started in the cup competitions. The Argentine enjoyed another great spell between the sticks for the Red Devils, and guided the club to the semi-finals of the Europa League and FA Cup.

However, much to the shock of fans and even the players, Romero was omitted from both starting XI’s. Ole Gunnar Solskjaer opted to use David De Gea in the latter stages of both competitions, in a season where United’s number one made a high-number of errors.

Not only did Romero deserve a chance when De Gea was costing his side much needed points. But, to then drop Romero in the semi-finals of both the FA Cup and Europa League was wholly unjustified. Something that has not gone down well with the rest of the squad.

What are the Options for the Argentine?

The shutting of the transfer window last week has not helped the Romero’s situation, severely limiting his options. Despite there being a domestic window still in play, it prevents a lateral move within the Premier League. A move to the Championship would not be breaking the rules, but the 33-year-old still possesses the ability to play at the highest level.

Another opportunity for Romero lies in the MLS. The division’s transfer window runs through to October 29, and could provide a gateway for Romero to get back to regular first-team action .
