Manchester United’s new interim manager Ralf Rangnick has expressed his frustration after the players overlooked his instructions during the game against Young Boys. 

The 63-year-old boss gave a full rest to the first team players and went with the reserve players who haven’t had many game times this season. However, United led the game through an acrobatic strike from Mason Greenwood. But, the lead didn’t last long as the visitors equalized the game before the interval. In the end, the game finished in a 1-1 draw, despite both teams had opportunities to find the winner.

Speaking with the MUTV, Ralf Rangnick said that they played much deeper than his liking and invited the press by sloppy passing. The German boss also said that he was disappointed with the way his side conceded the goal. He said:

“We were too deep, we sent several pressing invitations including the goal we conceded. What really was a little bit annoying was the way we gave the goal away because we played too many balls into the first line of their pressing area, and this was also the case with the goal we conceded. 

“We could have cleared the ball easily and whenever we played the ball into the second and third line, we were always dangerous. I told them that before the game, but they still played in that situation, a five-metre pass, and they were just waiting for that ball.”

Which of the Manchester United players might get a chance under Ralf Rangnick? After yesterday’s performance:

Ralf Rangnick completely changed the starting lineup against Young Boys and none of these players had played together before. Therefore, it would always be difficult for the fringe players to play at their highest level. However, few of them had a very good game. 

Eric Bailly displayed a tidy performance in defence and could get more game time under the German boss if he continues to perform like this. Another defender who performed well is Teden Mengi, the youngster was impressive after replacing Luke Shaw in the second half. 

Donny van de Beek also had a good game apart from the mistake that led to the goal. The Dutchman was very comfortable with the ball and played a few good passes from the deep. Meanwhile, Mason Greenwood also performed promisingly and scored an excellent goal. 

But, Rangnick said that the youngster will have to develop physically in order to play regular first-team football. Therefore, it will be interesting to see how the German manager moulds the 20-year-old into a world-class forward.
