Manchester United have had a horrid start to the season so far and injuries and controversies have not helped the team. With the ongoing investigation of Antony and the recent fallout between Erik ten Hag and Jadon Sancho, Manchester United are currently without two right-wingers.
TikTok and Instagram star MattyFC recently made a video discussing that what is the main problem at the club. He goes on to say that the problem isn’t with the players or the manager but with someone else. The creator then goes on to show a list of injured players before showing Paolo Gaudino who is the First-team rehabilitation and fitness coach for Manchester United.
He says that Paolo is the problem and needs to be immediately sacked as he goes on to text him over Twitter saying “TEN INJURED PLAYERS PAOLO, YOU ARE COSTING US THE POINTS, YOU ARE THE PROBLEM #SACKAPAOLOGUADINO”. He further says that Paolo needs to be fired and taken out of the office.

This video he made blew up on social media with Olympic gold medalist Usain Bolt liking it. Some fans took the post for the fun purpose it was intended while some criticised the behaviour of the creator for blaming the wrong person.
Some comments are – “Bros going through it rn” , “We’ve blamed coaches, players and the owners.. I agree time for a new scapegoat Paolo out” , “Paolo Paolo Paolo ….. your days are numbered”, “that’s the problem same thinking with me”, “Bro came from Arsenal send him back asap”. Some fans even called out the creator saying he is the actual problem.
List of injured players currently at Manchester United
Manchester United did not have luck on their side as they started the season with many of their players out injured which led them to loan Sergio Reguilon from Tottenham as they did not have a fit left back in the team. Erik ten Hag have also said that due to injuries he still hasn’t been able to play his best starting 11.
Manchester United currently have NINE players dealing with injuries 😳
Aaron Wan-Bissaka is the latest to pick up an injury and has been ruled out for “several weeks” 🤕 pic.twitter.com/umg7S1v7cT

Aaron Wan-Bissaka, who impressed at the back end of last season is out with a thigh injury and is expected to return towards the end of November, Joining him is new signing Mason Mount who should return by the end of this month. Second-choice keeper Tom Heaton is also out with a calf injury. Sofyan Amrabat has not featured the full 90 minutes as he has some back problems.
Amad Diallo and Tyrell Malacia are both out with knee injuries but it seems Malacia will return before October but Diallo is expected to miss a good part of the 2023/24 season. Harry Maguire and Luke Shaw were also out with injuries but Maguire should be back before the end of the month and Luke Shaw the following month. Youngster Kobiie Mainoo is also out due to an ankle injury.
Since Mason Mount’s injury, Manchester United have gave up 5.2 xG, conceded eight goals & got three points from a possible nine; evidently, the 𝙨𝙖𝙢𝙚 𝙥𝙧𝙤𝙗𝙡𝙚𝙢𝙨 persist, with or without the pre-determined scapegoat of Mason Mount.

With Varane being injured, it put United in a lot of jeopardy but thankfully they had Lisandro Martinez. But recently the Argentine has also suffered a slight knock and hence missed the match against Burnley but is expected to return rather quickly. Adding to this Manchester United is also missing two of their most expensive signings,Antony and Jadon Sancho due to disciplinary issues but for separate reasons.
