GARY NEVILLE has claimed Manchester United have "bugs in the dressing room" amid a chaotic start to the season.
Erik ten Hag's side lost 3-1 to Brighton at the weekend to leave them languishing in 13th in the Premier League table.
It has been a turbulent time for the club recently amid the manager's public dispute with Jadon Sancho, who has since been banished to youth-team.
This comes after Harry Maguire was stripped of the captaincy over the summer.
Neville is hoping Ten Hag will soon turn form around but the Sky Sports pundit is worried that there are more behind-the-scenes problems.
He explained: "How popular is Sancho and Maguire in the dressing room?

"He's got some bugs in there that we don't know from the outside, what discomfort and uncertainty is being created on the inside.
"You've got a player at the moment who is probably changing in the first-team dressing room but obviously over with the academy.
"You've got Maguire, who has been captain of these players 12 months ago, now almost alienated as third, fourth, fifth centre-half.
"He's got some situations in there I don't know the damage that's having.

"But in terms of his work on the pitch I don't think Ten Hag will change.
"The fact of the matter is there has been many a manager over the last ten to twelve years since Sir Alex Ferguson left that have found challenges at Manchester United.
"What I'm hoping at the moment is it's just a difficult start to the season and it's not a repeat of what we've seen previously.
"We've seen it becoming challenging for Jose Mourinho, for Louis van Gaal, for David Moyes, for obviously Ralf Rangnick and Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.
"So I hope it is not the beginning of that."
Man Utd have a chance to ease Neville's concerns on Wednesday night as they head to Bayern Munich for their Champions League opener.
They then face Burnley away in the Premier league.
