Manchester City thrashed United 4-1 on Sunday, their crosstown rivals.
Ralf Rangnick’s appointment as an interim manager by Manchester United has been slammed by Paul Scholes.
Manchester City thrashed Manchester United 4-1 on Sunday to add to United’s dreary season. Another derby defeat for United, and they’ve fallen out of contention for a playoff spot to Arsenal, who are playing well despite having three games remaining on their schedule.
With just eight percent possession in a 15-minute period of play, the display was particularly damning for Rangnick’s players because it was a near-complete surrender to their opponents.
Scholes, on the other hand, is not surprised, and he has questioned the club’s decision to bring in Rangnick to start replacing Ole Gunnar Solskjaer until the end of the current season. In an interview with Premier League Productions, he said, “What do we expect?” As a temporary solution, we’ve brought in an unexperienced coach.
There is a lot of pressure on Manchester United because of their status as one of the world’s most successful football clubs. ” It doesn’t matter who you’re up against when you’re playing. Until now, he hasn’t been to a prestigious nightclub. In the last decade, he’s coached a club for just two of those years.
The question is, how did United come to the conclusion that this man would be the right man for the next six to seven months? ” I’m baffled by it. On the field of play, the players appear to be disoriented.
“I was surprised by how well they played in the first 20 minutes; they seemed at ease with the ball and [Paul] Pogba up front looked alright.” Substitutes have worked well for him recently, but the team was deflated.
“You can criticize Manchester United all you want today, but they’re up against one of the best teams we’ve seen in recent memory. During the second half, it appeared as if the players had lost their way. “They didn’t seem to know what they were doing,” I said.
Blues took the lead through Kevin De Bruyne, but United came back strongly and leveled the score through an excellent Jadon Sancho strike. Manchester United’s defeat was confirmed by two goals from Riad Mahrez in the second half and two goals from Kevin de Bruyne before the interval.
There are those who believe Rangnick has strengthened United’s defense, but Scholes says they were lucky it wasn’t a bigger margin of victory. If it isn’t five or six, they’re lucky. Five or six saves from the goalkeeper this time around “she said.
Defensively, you said Ole had shored things up before the game, but he hadn’t. Never in a million years would I have expected this to happen to me. If he thinks that, he’s wasting his time and energy. For a long time, the keeper has prevented him from being beaten. “Today was the same as yesterday.”
