Rangnick holds two-hour call with Ten Hag over state of Manchester United squad

Ralf Rangnick had a disappointing spell in charge of Manchester United as interim manager.

The German will now take charge of Austria’s national team instead of working as a consultant at United, which was an arrangement that we thought would see Rangnick work at the club for at least two more years.

Erik ten Hag has already been appointed as the new manager however, it became clear that it was not his decision whether Rangnick would remain at the club. The Dutchman stressed that was a decision the club had to make.

According to the Telegraph, Ten Hag has held talks with Rangnick about the state of the team, with the pair spending two hours on a call.

Rangnick has been honest about the players since he took the job at Old Trafford, so I’m sure he gave a brutal assessment to the new boss.

The report adds that Rangnick became increasingly concerned at how well the current group of players gel together after years of ‘muddled thinking’ in the transfer market. Figures at the club may have changed their tune on Rangnick after United’s season went from bad to worse after Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s dismissal.

United suddenly believe they can build for the future without Rangnick’s influence on football matters. I hope they’re right but he wasn’t a very good manager.

    Rangnick was always going to fail. He was tasked with picking up a team that routinely got thrashed (or at least should have) and could barely pass a ball to each other and in fact just a terrible group of players. Players ole incidentally waxed lyrical about.

    Also spurs got conte. So if united wanted to finish in the top 4 then they should have appointed conte.

    Rangnick was rubbish ofc. I doubt ten hag will succeed. Murtough is calling the shots and he thought ole was doing a good job. Nuff said.

    Manchester have become a laughing stuck to the world,I hope new then new manager can fix the dressing room with players that are ready to work with him
    Likes of Paul Pogba don’t create any better opportunity to see united into another tone
    One of the other problem with the board was racist in selection’Balley Amend were better option for rotation but rather unfortunate this guy’s were not given ample time. We have many young players caming up we all need 6 to 7 players to come on board and also include 3 to 4 young players from academic to be part of the first team and the should also given some game time

    I believe united will come back to glory it just a matter of time with our new manager
    He has a lot to do, but definitely he will conquer.
