Ralf Rangnick – Football professor
The problem stems from Solskjaer’s final months as captain of the Red Devils. Some players are described by teammates as “the coach’s darling”, due to a group of stars who regularly start, while others struggle to find opportunities to play. Outrage has thus spread in the Man Utd dressing room.
Ole was fired, Ralf Rangnick was appointed as interim coach. Some players decry CV (resumé) and are not satisfied with the method of the German strategist. They questioned why the club would hire a coach who is serving as the sporting director of the Russian league, and were not convinced by Rangnick’s background in Germany, where his biggest achievement was the Nations Cup with Schalke. 2011.
A source from the dressing room said the players feel it is “strange” with the way Man Utd are going this season. Some admit they can’t blame Rangnick – who only signed a six-month contract with the club.
Marcus Rashford is uncertain about the future, when the striker has not been used recently. The Three Lions player only started 2 of the last 11 matches, so it is rumored that he will consider a plan to leave.
Eric Bailly is only the 5th choice at center back. The Ivorian star is not satisfied by the regular presence of Harry Maguire, despite the Man Utd captain constantly having disastrous performances. Bailly has only played 7 times this season. He was a substitute in the match against Man City, although Raphael Varane was positive for COVID-19. The 27-year-old defender is therefore ready to leave Old Trafford in the summer, despite having renewed last year.
Diogo Dalot was surprised when he was suddenly dropped from the squad, despite having 8 consecutive starting matches. In the match against Atletico Madrid, Rangnick chose Victor Lindelof for the right-back position. After that, Aaron Wan-Bissaka suddenly started in the confrontation with Watford and Man City. As is known, the British star had a disastrous performance.
Dean Henderson has only had 3 appearances since the beginning of the season. Obviously, the British goalkeeper cannot be satisfied, when the 2022 World Cup is approaching. Henderson is therefore likely to leave next summer.
