What Ralf Rangnick said about Manchester United in 2019

Author: | Posted in Sports No comments

As Ralf Rangnick becomes ready to become Manchester United’s new interim manager, reports are emerging of his comments to Manchester United in 2019.

When he was interviewed by the Times in 2019, Rangnick spoke about the club’s condition since Sir Alex Ferguson left. He also pointed out the mistakes that Manchester United have made in the transfer market over the last few years. He said:

“Since Sir Alex left, they have underperformed. They have not won the title since he left. In any club, if you can not get the right players, then at least you should not sign the wrong ones.”

Rangnick was in the running to become Manchester United’s interim manager following Jose Mourinho’s dismissal in 2019. When asked to confirm these rumors, Rangnick replied:

“Then you have to have the best possible coaches to develop these players. There is a lot of room for a vision for #mufc, but I’m very happy where I am. “

Rangnick was also contacted by Chelsea to be their interim manager after firing Frank Lampard, but he declined the offer by saying:

“I’m not a temporary coach. For the media and the players, you would be a four-month manager.”

This marks a massive turnaround from his above comments about Chelsea’s temporary manager job. Rangnick has agreed a six-month deal until the end of May. He will have two more years in a consulting role at Manchester United.

Ralf Rangnick is known as the godfather of “Genepressing”. Jurgen Klopp has cited Rangnick as being “one of the best, if not the best German coach” and was instrumental in influencing Klopp’s style of play. His approach is focused on a very pressured football style, being proactive and entertaining at the same time.


Rangnick will not be available for Manchester United’s Premier League clash with Chelsea

Work permit procedures prevent Ralf Rangnick from joining dugout in time for Manchester United’s Premier League match against Chelsea on Sunday.

Ralf Rangnick’s first match as Manchester United’s new manager will be against Arsenal at Old Trafford.

Earlier, when Rangnick was present at Old Trafford, he was on the road and managed Schalke in the UEFA Champions League semi-final 2010-11 against Manchester United. He lost to his future employers 6-1 overall.
