Man United legend questions Rangnick’s credentials after Southampton


'He's a manager': Man United legend questions Rangnick's credentials after Southampton deadlock

Former Manchester United midfielder Paul Scholes was quick to take aim at the club’s caretaker boss, following another disappointing result on Saturday afternoon.

Ralf Rangnick, of course, led his troops back into action today, looking for a comeback result against Southampton after falling to a disappointing 1-1 draw with Burnley in midweek.

However, when all was said and done at Old Trafford, the Red Devils were once again forced to settle for a share of the spoils.

This comes after Jadon Sancho’s first half was disallowed by Che Adams shortly after the interval, dealing another blow to Manchester United’s hopes of clinching a top 4 spot.

And, as mentioned above, one person who evidently feels much of the blame for the club’s struggles should be placed on boss Rangnick is Paul Scholes.

Speaking to BT Sport at the back of the full-time whistle in Manchester on Saturday, club legend Scholes questioned the lack of long-term planning at Old Trafford, before suggesting the current boss of his former club belongs in the room. of meetings, instead of the bench:

“The looting of Ole was coming, we all knew it but we all felt that, where was the plan?” Scholes questioned. ”There has to be a plan, there has to be an elite coach in the football club to revive the football club.

“It’s Manchester United, they should have the best of everything and not to have a plan and bring in what is a sporting director, he has managed a team two years out of the last 10.

“Don’t get me wrong, I like the man, he presents himself well, but he seems to have lacked training for the last five or six years. They are a team of individuals, you look at the difference today at Man United against Southampton.

“Southampton was brilliant, the training, the methods, the passages of the game, it was fantastic.

“You look at Manchester United and they were all over the place. McTominay was left alone in midfield, Pogba left alone in midfield, where Bruno Fernandes plays, I don’t know.

“He’s playing all over the pitch, the wing players aren’t working hard enough, it’s not always about having possession, sometimes you have to do ugly things that give you a little bit of pain. Very often, this team falls back and is very easy to play against.

“One team has a suitable manager, the other team has a sporting director who is not the right one for Manchester United.”

Top 4 run away

United’s last point secured on Saturday actually saw the Red Devils move up a place in the Premier League table, overtaking Arsenal in fifth place.

The Gunners, however, have not one, but two games against Ralf Rangnick and company. Nowadays.

This means that, if both Arsenal and north London rivals Tottenham hit three-pointers in their respective games, Manchester United are poised to drop to seventh in the English top flight, in the midst of a season that is, in general, quickly out of control.
