Ralf Rangnick reacts to Ronaldo’s critics

Ralf Rangnick assumed control of Man United after Ole Gunnar Solskjaer was fired in November of last year. The club also announced that the German would continue in a consulting capacity for an additional two years following the end of the current campaign.

Rangnick, however, was ultimately fired from his consulting position because he was unable to raise performance levels while serving as interim manager. He left the club after United finished with their lowest-ever Premier League point total.

Ralf Rangnick led Manchester United in 24 games throughout which he won ten, tied seven, and lost seven.

Rangnick’s tenure at United was a complete failure. The players did not support him and did not believe in his plan.

Ronaldo was one of the players that made it clearest that he disagreed with the manager’s strategies out of all those who made no effort for Rangnick.

At the time, it was said that Rangnick’s high-pressing method, which required a striker to initiate the press and take the lead in the defensive effort, did not sit well with Ronaldo.

After getting harsh criticism from Ronaldo, who was interviewed by Piers Morgan recently, Rangnick was obliged to reaffirm this week that he is focused on managing Austria’s national team. Rangnick was appointed Austria’s national team manager in late April.

The 37-year-old Portugal international has blasted the club’s Glazer’s owners, manager Erik ten Hag, and their choice to employ Ralf Rangnick, an ex-boss.

In an interview with Piers Morgan, Ronaldo said: “It astonished me that Ralf Rangnick, who isn’t even a coach, was appointed Manchester United’s manager after Ole was fired. If you’re not even a coach, how are you going to be the leader of Manchester United? I’d never even heard of him.”

When questioned over Ronaldo’s remarks, Rangnick responded: “I’m the team manager of Austria’s national team; it’s not my business to judge that. It is the responsibility of both Manchester United and the sports media.”

Note that the Portuguese international, who is about to depart United after giving a shocking interview to Piers Morgan last week, has angered the host.

Morgan suggested Arsenal get Ronaldo during the winter transfer window after the interview.

Although the Portuguese may “still add something to the Emirates,” Wilshere advised that Arteta should avoid signing Ronaldo.

“I still believe there is an advantage to having him, to see how he lives and how he does things”, Wilshere said.

“No, I don’t think Mikel would want him, and neither would I.”
