Still coach Ralf Rangnick will present the bosses of Manchester United with a relentless analysis of the current squad. The English newspaper reports Mirror. Numerous stars would get away very badly.
As a coach, Ralf Rangnick is not allowed to continue at Manchester United beyond the summer – but that does not mean that the 62-year-old does not continue to have a great influence on the sporting field. Rangnick should write a kind of summary of the current United squad and send it to the bosses.
The new coach Erik ten Hag should get a quicker overview of the quality of the squad. And the Dutchman might not like what he is supposed to be reading.
Devastating verdict on some stars
Rangnick’s criticism in the dossier would be partly scathing, like the English newspaper Mirror writes. According to this, players repeatedly disregarded Rangnick’s clear instructions in the games and did not follow Rangnick’s tactics.
Many players are “not fit enough” and cannot go full speed for 90 minutes or more. Opponents would run faster and with more stamina than the United stars, he said Mirror continue.
Need for improvement in all parts of the team
Specifically, defensive players such as Victor Lindelöf, Phil Jones, Eric Bailly and Aaron Wan-Bissaka should be mentioned, who lack the quality to play for United. Harry Maguire, about whom there has been a heated debate for weeks and which recently even resulted in death threats for the player, is an issue. Maguire also shows some weaknesses, but the transfer fee of over 80 million euros is a reason not to just drop the defense chief.
Rangnick also sees room for improvement in midfield: With two strong defensive midfielders and a director in front of them, United are better positioned than they are currently. Attackers Jadon Sancho and Marcus Rashford fell short of expectations, the new coach had to push the players to their limits. And although Cristiano Ronaldo delivers quite well with 22 goals this season, a new attacker should also come.
