Following his previously great performances for United, the right-form back has dipped this season. In fact, he has suffered alongside a slew of other Red Devils stars this season due to their inconsistent record.
Since interim manager Ralf Rangnick took over, observers such as Gary Neville have criticized some of the players’ body language.
While the results have improved after Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s departure, United’s performance has been criticized.
However, according to journalist Duncan Castles, Wan-Bissaka is now under fire for his behavior off the field.
The right-back has been ruled out of United’s last four games. Rangnick acknowledged that the player was “still sick” in mid-January. Castles, on the other hand, claims that there is more to the narrative.
According to Castles, the right-back has missed “a lot of training.” He went on to say that Wan-argument Bissaka deviates from standard practice. Furthermore, other members of the squad are said to be discussing what’s going on at United’s Carrington training facility.
“I’m informed that he failed to show up to training on at least one occasion, citing illness as a reason, calling in to say that he was ill and that’s why he wasn’t coming in for training,” Castles said on the Transfer Window podcast.

“At a football team, that’s really unique.” In general, if you have an illness, you will come to the training ground, let the club physicians assess you, and then they will make a choice in consultation with the player as to whether you train and, of course, the best approach to get you fit enough to play again.
“I’m informed he’s been penalized by the club for not showing up to training.”
“Other players have been notified that there is a disciplinary issue involved, and other players have commented on his attitude and issues with him on the training field.”
Rangnick remarked of Wan-Bissaka ahead of the 3-1 win over Brentford in January: “He’s still ill, I’m concerned.”
“He won’t be available for the game, and he won’t be available for the West Ham game either.” Hopefully, he’ll be back for training after the international break.”
Rangnick, though, made no mention of Wan-improvement Bissaka’s during his most recent press conference on Thursday.
Lingard takes aim at Rangnick
Castles’ allegation comes after Anthony Martial and Jesse Lingard have chastised Rangnick for their comments about their respective circumstances in recent weeks.
The two cases have sparked debate over whether or not player power is a factor at Manchester United.
Rangnick claimed that Martial turned down the opportunity to play in the 2-2 draw against Aston Villa. Martial responded by saying he would “never insult” the club.
Rangnick also stated on Thursday that Lingard requested time off to “clear his thoughts” after failing to secure a transfer out of Old Trafford in January.
Lingard, for his part, retorted that he will “always be professional.”
