The Red Devils hierarchy appointed the German tactician as an interim manager until the end of this season after sacking Ole Gunnar Solskjaer. Following the conclusion of his spell as the interim boss, the 63-year-old will take over the consultant role for two more years from next season.
Meanwhile, as per the report, Manchester United players are exasperated by Ralf Rangnick’s training methods as they believe that the German boss’ training methods are ‘old fashioned’. The players are also bemused by the fact that the German tactician does not involve in the training sessions and has handed over the responsibility of training the squad to his assistant, Chris Armas.
The report further claims that the 63-year-old emphasises building team shapes and organizations and therefore, uses the 11 vs 11 sessions, but the players feel that dynamic drills should be implemented more in order to keep the sharpness in between the games.
Despite the players’ being frustrated with Rangnick’s training methods, the German’s process seems to be working well as Manchester United have conceded fewer goals in the last few games than they were conceding under Solskjaer. However, the biggest problem that United have at the moment is in the opposite end of the pitch.
The Red Devils have dominated the last two games and created lots of chances, but failed to convert those opportunities.
Rangnick will have to find a quick solution in order to improve the squad to achieve the main objective of this season. After being eliminated from the F.A Cup, the Old Trafford outfit have wasted the only realistic chance of winning a trophy. So, finishing in the top four spot seems to be the only way of ending the season with some positives.
Manchester United had favourable runs of fixtures in the last few weeks to improve their position in the league ahead of a tough period in March. But, they haven’t been able to take full advantage of that as they are currently out of the Champions League spot.
