THE BALL – “I don’t understand how Rangnick was elected coach of this club” (Manchester United)

to toggle. The elimination of Manchester United in the Champions League at the feet of Atletico Madrid on Tuesday sparked a wave of indignation from supporters of the Old Trafford club. But not only.

Paul Scholes, former player of the red devils – wore the red jersey for 19 consecutive seasons – did not spare German coach Ralf Rangnick, hired for six months after the dismissal of Norwegian Solskjaer last November.

“I don’t understand how he was chosen to coach this club, honestly, I don’t know, I don’t understand. Hiring a ‘real’ coach is something important, “defended the former midfielder, now 47, at BT Sport, after the defeat at home to João Félix’s team in the knockout stages of the Champions League.

“There is talent in this team. The first thing Manchester need to get closer to winning again is a ‘fit coach’ working for this team. If Diego Simeone had been on the bench today, United would have passed.”
