Ralf Rangnick happy with Manchester United squad

Ralf Rangnick has been appointed as interim manager for Manchester United following the departure of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and the club will decide his future. Since taking over the club last month Rangnick said he is “more than happy” with the attitude of his squad.

Immediately after joining, the German coach led the football team to victory in his first match at the Red Devils when they outplayed Crystal Palace. He guided the team to a first home clean sheet in the Premier League this season in his managerial bow against Crystal Palace. And for his second match that was for Champions League Rangnick led a much-changed line-up against Young Boys but had to settle with a draw.

Now in the job for more than two weeks, the German told Sky Sports those games – and a fortnight’s worth of training – has helped him to get up to speed with the quality of his new squad, and that he has been delighted with their response to their poor start to the season ahead of visiting Norwich, live on Saturday Night Football.

“So far, I’m more than happy with their attitude and eagerness to learn and get information that will help them get better not only against [without] the ball but with it,” he said. Rangnick says his main focus has been improving the defence and that will be key to getting better results.

“Having only two clean sheets until the Crystal Palace game and having no clean sheets since April at Old Trafford, it was very clear for me where our first focus should be for the first couple of days and weeks.”

“If we can produce more clean sheets, if we don’t even allow [the opponent] to even shoot on our goal, the more I’m convinced that we will win games because with this group of players we are always capable of creating chances and scoring goals.”
