EPL: Manchester United players regret appointment of Rangnick, demand new manager

Manchester United players have admitted that the club should not have appointed Ralf Rangnick as the club’s interim manager.

A section of the squad is of the opinion that the club made a huge mistake in not bringing in Tottenham’s boss, Antonio Conte as their new manager.

Reports in England said another crisis is brewing in the club’s dressing room under Rangnick.

The German is currently facing a divided dressing room at Old Trafford, with his own methods and tactics being questioned.

The Sun reports that behind the scenes, the German has developed a reputation for being ‘aloof and overconfident’.

The players are regretting the missed opportunity to bring in Conte before Ole Gunnar Solskjaer was sacked.

Rangnick was appointed to take charge at Old Trafford until the end of the season when he is expected to take up a consultancy role at the club.

Conte was considered the favourite to become new Manchester United boss when Solskjaer’s position became untenable.

The former Juventus, Chelsea and Inter Milan boss reportedly ‘loved’ the idea of becoming Manchester United manager but no official offer was made, with the club viewing him as a combative figure who would not serve as a long-term solution.

Conte was then appointed Tottenham manager and was unveiled on November 2, following the sacking of Nuno Espirito Santo.

United players, according to the report, are now expecting the club to bring in Paris Saint-Germain boss, Mauricio Pochettino in the summer.
