Several Manchester United players have been left ‘underwhelmed’ by the early impact of Ralf Rangnick at Old Trafford since his appointment, according to reports.
The German boss endured his first defeat as Man United interim boss on Monday after losing 1-0 to Wolves.
The disappointing defeat to the Wanderers means the 7th place Red Devils are four points behind 4th placed Arsenal, though they have a game in hand.
Though Manchester United have recorded three wins and a draw in Rangnick’s first five Premier League matches, the team’s performance hasn’t been scintillating.
Just as they underperform on the pitch, it’s just how they feel in the dressing room and ESPN have reported that some of the players have been ‘underwhelmed’ by the former Leipzig manager’s start to life at United.
Before his appointment, loads of positive comments were said about the German manager.
The likes of Thomas Tuchel, Jurgen Klopp, and several German bosses reserved special praises for Rangnick, and he was nicknamed as the father of gegenpressing, which inspired many to expect the ex-Leipzig boss to turn things around at United.
However, since joining the squad, the team hasn’t shown any significant change and one source reportedly told ESPN that a Man United player had to Google who Ralf Rangnick was when his appointment was finalised at the end of November.
Ralf will have to help Manchester United finish in the top four this season in order to enable the club to maintain its place in the Champions League for the third time in a row.
And also boost his chances of becoming the permanent boss at United, if he aspires to.
