Out of favour Ben Amos told to move in Manchester United dressing room by Chris Smalling

Ben Amos

The fourth-choice stopper was told to change places in the Manchester United dressing room.

The goalkeepers are certainly in the news at Manchester United this week. Manchester United snapped up former Barcelona goalkeeper Victor Valdes on a free transfer this week on an 18-month deal.

With his signing saw the re-emergence of the Real Madrid rumours for their star goalkeeper David De Gea. Manchester United are trying to tie him down to a new contract but the fears remain.

Anders Lindegaard is another in the news. It looks like the Dane will be on his way out of the club in the winter. He is being linked with plenty of moves as he looks unlikely to play in the future, with Valdes now ahead of him in the pecking order.

So what about the fourth-choice? Ben Amos has not enjoyed his time at United under Louis van Gaal. In the summer he was criticised by the Dutch coach for conceding a long-range striker from AS Roma midfielder Miralem Pjanic.

With that and almost zero chance of first-team football it can't be too enjoyable for the stopper.

Now it has been revealed that he has been shoved out of his corner in the Manchester United dressing room.

Manchester United defender Chris Smalling told United Uncovered that Amos has been moved out of his former place in the dressing room, over to the 'goalkeeper corner', because of his wet gloves:

"I sit in the right-hand corner next to Jonny Evans. Ben Amos used to be next to me, but he moved because he kept leaving his wet gloves on the side - we pushed him over to the goalkeeper corner! I was also next to Danny Welbeck, but his place has been taken by Jesse Lingard, and Tyler Blackett is next to him – it’s quite a young corner, but it’s also a fun corner to be in."

It doesn't seem like Amos can do anything right at the moment.
