Rangnick in trouble at Man Utd? (Sports News)After taking over the post vacated by Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, Manchester United interim manager Ralf Rangnick is facing trouble at Man Utd, as there are players that are dissatisfied about the way he is running things. Let’s look at this in greater detail.

Rangnick in Trouble at Man Utd - Details

The “godfather of gegenpressing” was chosen following a dismal record during the start of the season, both in the Premier League and the UEFA Champions League. The club was also eliminated from contention in the EFL Cup under Solskjaer. A veteran of football in Germany who has mentored Chelsea’s Thomas Tuchel and Liverpool’s Jurgen Klopp, Rangnick was brought in to duplicate the feats of his students.

So far, the former RB Leipzig boss has had three wins in his first five games. However, their showing has been underwhelming, as the club have struggled to beat relegation side Norwich City (1-0); settled for a 1-1 draw with another relegation candidate, Newcastle; and lost to mid-table side Wolverhampton (0-1).

Pundits and fans have voiced their displeasure with Rangnick’s tactics. Former United star Gary Neville also called the players “whinge-bags”, spending more time arguing than playing in the match with Newcastle.

Rangnick in Trouble at Man Utd - The Coach's Concerns

Rangnick himself has acknowledged that there are players who were unhappy with playing time given to them. In the first few weeks, Rangnick said that his playing style could not implement his trademark “rock n’ roll football” strategy with attackers such as Cristiano Ronaldo and Bruno Fernandes.

The German manager has made clear his immediate concerns regarding Man Utd. Firstly, the he said that his  ‘”style isn’t suited to his defenders’ and cmay have to ‘compromise his system to steer them back on track’. Man Utd skipper and defender Harry Maguire, for one, has had a disappointing performance after having fine form for the England team that went all the way to the European Championship finals last summer.

Secondly, ‘Rangnick’s coaching team has opined that the physical conditioning of the team is below what they had expected’.

Rangnick in Trouble at Man Utd - Press Statement

“When you have a big squad, in the last two games, we had most players available and only 10 field players can play and three substitutes,” Rangnick said in a news conference on Friday. “Then you have quite a number of players who don’t even play or not even in the squad. Those players are unhappy about the situation — it’s obvious, clear.

“I tend to explain to players every two or three weeks why they are not playing and that is an issue in our team and other clubs. We have players with contracts expiring in the summer, we have maybe also one or two players who want to leave and are under contract.”

Rangnick also acknowledges that it will be a hard task to get a better showing in the Premier League, especially now that their best chance would be to secure the fourth slot behind Man City, Chelsea and Liverpool, and play in a European tournament. Apart from this there is the challenge of making it through to the Champions League with the trophy in their sights.

The German and his men will try to get things in order in their FA Cup third round tie against fellow Premier League side Aston Villa: their first match after the loss to Wolves. Will the Red Devils finally get their act together? We shall see.
