Just In: How I identified Man United problem in two weeks – Former Club boss finally speaks

While the belief series of problems ravaging the Manchester United club, former interim manager, Ralf Rangnick has revealed that it took him two weeks to identify the club’s problems after replacing Ole Gunnar Solskjaer last season.

Rangnick, who is currently Austria’s head coach, was handed the responsibility of guiding Man United mid-season until the end of the 2021-2022 campaign.

The German arrived in England after leaving the role of sporting director at Lokomotiv Moscow.

Renowned for handling recruitment and sporting development at different clubs, Rangnick failed to improve on-field matters at Man United from the dugout.

Rangnick guided a disjointed Man United squad to a sixth-place finish in the Premier League at the end of May this year.

Speaking to Austrian daily Der Standard, Rangnick said, “As a coach or sports director, it’s about being able to develop things and minimising the chance factor as much as possible. That you develop a team in a direction where you use game control and a certain type of football to create significantly more chances than you allow the opponent to have.”

He added: “It would not have taken Manchester United six months to do that. After just two weeks, it was clear to me where the problems were and what would have to be done to fix them – but the question is whether you have the option of changing these things.”

From this revelation it now becomes apparent that the managers are not allowed to make independent decisions at Manchester United and that compounds the problem more.

However, we are positive that the story will change in this new era and that Erik ten Hag will bring a ray of hope to the Red Devils camp.
