'They're not having him' – Man Utd boss Ralf Rangnick told he 'could be worst appointment in Premier League HISTORY'

'They're not having him' – Man Utd boss Ralf Rangnick told he 'could be worst appointment in Premier League HISTORY'

January 4, 2022

MANCHESTER UNITED interim manager Ralf Rangnick may prove to be "one of the worst appointments in Premier League history".

That is according to former Arsenal winger Perry Groves, who believes United made a major mistake hiring Rangnick as Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's replacement.

The Red Devils lost 1-0 to Wolves at Old Trafford on Monday with Joao Moutinho's winner sealing the German head coach's first loss in charge of the Manchester giants.

Although results picked up ever since the former RB Leipzig manager's arrival, the performances have still left much to be desired.

They barely won against Crystal Palace and Norwich and were lucky to scrape a point away at struggling Newcastle.

Groves told talkSPORT: "I think he could go down as one of the worst appointments in Premier League history.

"The players, you can tell that they're not having Rangnick.

"You can tell that they're not convinced by him. They're not actually putting the effort in they should be."

Rangnick admitted the loss to Wolves proves there is still a lot of work to be done at United.

However, the 63-year-old, who will undertake a consultant role at the club in June,refused to mention any names.

Rangnick said during his post-match interview: "The game showed we still have a lot of work to do and still have to take quite a few steps, both collectively and individually, especially against the ball.

"But in the first half in particular, in possession of the ball, there were too many unforced errors, too many giveaways. In those parts of the game, we just have to get better.

"I don't want to speak about individual performances of players, it is an issue of the whole team. We can only improve the team if we get better collectively.

"It doesn't make sense now to talk about individual performances."
