Senior Manchester United stars such as Cristiano Ronaldo and Bruno Fernandes are losing faith in Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's tactics, but the manager will not quit regardless.
Solskjaer remains adamant he can turn the tide at Old Trafford after returning to the Carrington training complex this week.
He took a holiday in his native Norway at the start of the international break but is now readying for a hectic run of fixtures which sees United play nine matches in less than a month.
The Red Devils boss is looking to turn around a run of form which saw six defeats in the last 12 games – but several of his players aren't convinced he can do it.
According to The Sun, Portugal pair Ronaldo and Fernandes, who are two of the leading voices in the dressing room, believe performances should be much better.
Those on the outskirts of the first team, such as Donny van de Beek and Jesse Lingard, are bemused at their lack of game time.
And overall, a number of the squad are growing 'disillusioned' with Solskjaer's tactics and team selection.

But despite all that, he remains positive and is frustrated that the overall progress during his reign is not being taken into account.
The United hierarchy have stuck by him so far, but have been exploring alternative options for if they do decide to give him the sack.
And Solskjaer's future likely rests on their final two group games in the Champions League.
United travel to face Villarreal next Tuesday, which is a crunch game with both teams on seven points.
Two weeks after that they face Young Boys at Old Trafford, and if they fail to qualify for the knockout stages after that, then it's hard to see him staying.
The rest of their season mainly lies on the European competition, which has reportedly been made a priority after falling nine points behind in the Premier League title race.
The game after Villarreal is another away trip to the league leaders Chelsea, which if he's still in charge for, will be another vital match for Solskjaer.
It's shaping up to be a make-or-break period for United.
