Rangnick, who was put in as a ‘firefighter’, “Performance so far? Naturally below expectations”

[인터풋볼] Reporter Jong-Heon Oh = Manager Ralph Langnick, who recently took over Manchester United, looked at the present with a cold look.

Britain’s ‘Mirror’ reported on the 29th (Korean time), “After arriving at United, coach Rangnick admitted that he did not achieve as much as he wanted. After the arrival of the new manager, United went undefeated in four matches, but Newcastle played after a break on the 16th. The United game was different from the previous one.”

Manchester United did not perform as expected under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer at the beginning of the season. In all competitions, they recorded 7 wins, 3 draws and 7 losses, and the win rate was only half, and they fell to their knees in succession against rivals Liverpool (0-5) and Manchester City (0-2). In the end, manager Solskjaer was sacked after a 4–4 loss against Watford.

First of all, Rangnick is the man who will lead Manchester United until this season. Coach Rangnick was the mastermind who led the team to promotion to the German Bundesliga during the 2015-16 season as both manager and director of RB Leipzig. After serving as Manchester United’s interim manager this season, Rangnick will serve as an advisor for the next two years.

a good start After making his Manchester United debut against Crystal Palace in early December, he did not lose in 4 matches (2 wins, 2 draws), including the recent match against Newcastle. However, critics arose as they played a sloppy game against Newcastle, allowing a preemptive goal in the seventh minute of the first half. It was fortunate that Edinson Cavani’s equalizer gave them one point.

In this regard, the global media ‘ESPN’ said, “If coach Rangnick can’t improve his performance further, he has no choice but to struggle to get points against strong teams. Now, manager Rangnick’s honeymoon period is over. It’s a very serious condition,” he said with concern.

Of course, there were big variables outside of the game against Newcastle. It’s the aftermath of COVID-19. The match was the first official match Manchester United had played in about two weeks. After playing the 16th EPL round against Norwich City on the 12th, Manchester United faced a situation where they had to postpone two matches in a row due to the bad news of Corona 19.

First of all, Director Rangnick looked at the current situation coldly. When asked if he had achieved as much as he wanted in the past few weeks at United, he replied: “Of course not.” He continued, “As an ambitious coach, you want to go faster and bigger. But to do that, you need training.”

“As everyone knows, we had to close the training ground for four days. After the Norwich game, only a few players gathered to train. He also surprised me in a negative way,” he said.
