Ralf Rangnick evaluates Atletico Madrid’s defeat

Manchester United staff are ‘concerned’ about the club’s transfer plans at the end of the season as many key decisions are on hold until Ralf Rangnick’s appointed successor.

The German was appointed at the end of November last year as Ole Gunnar Solskjaer replacements but only on an interim basis, meaning that the top of United’s hierarchy are still in the spotlight for a permanent appointment to take over at the end of the season. There are a number of names in the running, including the Paris Saint-Germain Boss Mauricio Pochettino.

Based on walkie talkie, many of those working at the club can’t plan particularly far as things could change depending on who replaces Rangnick in the summer. There are concerns that the delay caused by the process could only further damage United’s fortunes in the long term.

Things have turned significantly bleak around Old Trafford as it was after they were dropped Champions League at the hands of the La Liga giants Atlético Madrid. The Spanish side stopped the slightest threat United could muster as they held out with their hands for most of both feet.

By Diego Simeone The team were the dominant force in the first leg in Madrid but Anthony Elanga’s belated equalizer stoked United’s hopes of progressing to the next round of the most elite club competition. Renan Lodi’s header in the 41st minute at Old Trafford was enough to split the two sides and knock United out.

The loss means any semi-realistic hopes of a silver title for United this season are over as the club’s title drought continues. The Red Devils have not had any major honors since the 2017 Europa League when Jose Mourinho was at the top.

PLEASE SAY YOURS! Who should Man Utd appoint as their next manager? Comment below

There are doubts as to whether United will qualify for next season’s Champions League given their poor form. Rangnick’s team is currently fifth in the table, one point behind Arsenal despite having played two more games than the Gunners.

West Ham only two points behind the Red Devils with the same number of games played, while Tottenham Hotspur are gasping for breath as they are two points behind United with a game in hand. Failure to qualify could cause a massive exodus of players who want to keep trying at the highest level.

The likes of Edinson Cavani and Paul Pogba have been expected to have time for their careers at United at the end of the season, but a further fallout could see the likes of Cristiano Ronaldo also began to consider their options.

Rangnick’s brief tenure undeniably failed to inspire as United were knocked out of both the Champions League and the Champions League. FA Cup on your watch. Any chance of the 63-year-old remaining in charge after this season appears to have been extinguished following a string of poor recent performances.

United can barely afford another season behind schedule and no longer in contention for major titles with months of the campaign still to play. That’s why the next appointment needs to be made sooner rather than later.
