[골닷컴] Reporter Kang Dong-hoon = Patrice Evra (40, France) reacted negatively to the appointment of Ralph Langnick (63, Germany) as interim manager by his former team Manchester United. Above all, Evra emphasized Manchester United’s DNA and expressed disappointment.
Manchester United announced on the club’s official website on the 29th (Korean time), “Manager Rangnick has signed a contract to serve as interim manager until June next year. Also, after his temporary managership ends, he will serve as an advisor for two years.”
After taking over as manager, Rangnick said, “I am excited to take over as Manchester United manager. This season, we will focus on making Manchester United a successful season.
Manchester United fans raised expectations when Rangnick took over as manager. Undoubtedly, coach Rangnick has long established a reputation as a representative of the Bundesliga for a long time. Every time he took over the team, he flexibly operated tactics and showed his ability to systematically lead the team. In particular, he is called the teacher of coaches who dominate the current soccer world, such as Jurgen Klopp (54, Germany) and Thomas Tuchel (48, Germany).
After retiring from the managerial position, he worked as a general manager and sports director, discovering large prospects based on his outstanding eyesight. Accordingly, expectations are being raised that large-scale signings will be made during the transfer market.
But Evra had a very different idea. Evra recently participated as a panelist at ‘Amazon Prime Video Studio’ and said, “Man Utd has its own play style and DNA. On the other hand, when it comes to Rangnick’s style, there is a big difference from Manchester United.” “I’m really angry. Who is Rangnick?” ? Was he a manager? Has he ever lifted a proper trophy? Where does our history and tradition that we have accumulated over the years go?”
“Rather, I think Rangnick should be taught to young players at the academy, but I will support him because he has already been appointed. However, fans should remember and respect United’s history, tradition and DNA.”
