The Spaniard was dropped from United’s line-up for the game against Leicester City on Sunday afternoon in favour of the Red Devils newest signing, Radamel Falcao who won his first start in the fixture at the King Power stadium.
Murphy feels that the former Chelsea man will become frustrated at being left on the bench for a long period and worries that the play maker could become a problem in the dressing room.
“Manchester United won 4-0 against QPR, they played really well and Juan Mata scored. What more can he do he?” Murphy told the BBC.
“The problem for Man Utd this season will be leaving big names out. Without Champions League football, will Louis van Gaal be able to keep those players happy?
“Because it does not matter how much money you earn, if you are not playing you are unhappy.
“And those players could become a negative influence on the team.”
Van Gaal has a wealth of attacking talent at his disposal this season with Angel Di Maria arriving at Old Trafford along with Falcao however, defensively the Dutchman is short of numbers which means he may have to dip into the transfer market again in January.
