Arsenal legend Ian Wright has accused Ralf Rangnick of not having enough trust in Mason Greenwood after he subbed him off during the Manchester United clash vs Wolves.
Man United endured another setback after losing 1-0 at home to a well-organised Wolves, thanks to an 82nd-minute strike from Joao Moutinho.
Mason Greenwood was one of the best players on the pitch for the Red Devils but somehow, Rangnick would go on to haul the youngster off, leaving both Edinson Cavani and Cristiano Ronaldo. A move that left fans no choice but to question his decision.
The German boss after the match said Greenwood was one of the best performers on the pitch but felt he wasn’t outstanding.
Rangnick said after that he was unwilling to make any change to his defensive midfielders McTominay and Matic, leaving him to choose between one of Greenwood or Edinson Cavani to come off.
Wright felt Ralf Rangnick went ahead to haul off Greenwood because it was an easier option for him rather than taking off either experienced players in Ronaldo or Cavani and felt it was a hint he has little trust in the 20-year-old.
‘I’m quite disappointed with Ralf there with omission about Edinson Cavani or Greenwood,’ Ian Wright told Premier League Production.
‘In this game, Greenwood wase giving more. For Greenwood to be taken off, because Cavani is more experienced and the stature of the player, says to me ‘I don’t trust him enough now’.
‘I’m not taking Mason Greenwood off. For him to say: ‘And I just chose Greenwood’ is just taking off the youngster who is doing more.’
