Man Utd’s worst Premier League season ever

Ralf Rangnick has been heavily criticized by former Manchester United centre-back Rio Ferdinand, who has urged the club to prevent him from doing any further interviews or press conferences.

The interim manager has just one game left of a tumultuous tenure, with Rangnick undeniably underwhelming in terms of on-pitch results but offering something different when it comes to his interactions with the media. The former RB Leipzig boss is an open book when it comes to publicly exposing everything that is wrong inside the club.

Rangnick has spoken openly about being told there was no player available to help the cause as he identified some forward transfer targets. He has also been guilty of moaning to the press about the players actually available to him and their athleticism.

Indeed, many fans have embraced his refreshing honesty and, surprisingly, it seems to have endeared him to United faithful. However, Ferdinand believes it has now gone too far and Rangnick should be banned from speaking to the media.

“I don’t agree with the way he airs the dirty laundry in public while he’s still on the hotseat, while he’s still in there,” the ex-England international told his YouTube show Vibe with FIVE. “Sometimes it’s nice for fans, you want to get a little glimpse, but there’s information that he gives away [that he shouldn’t be].

“You’re still on the job man, relax, have some respect for the people around you. Make waves behind the scenes. Push, pull, and jostle behind-the-scenes people for positions and results. I’ve been saying that for a few weeks now, he’s been saying a bunch of stuff, almost to shirk responsibility. But he has to take some responsibility that the team has gotten worse since he’s been in there.

The former United star went on to claim that while Rangnick has an excellent reputation for working behind the scenes, he has fallen spectacularly short of what the club brought him to do this season.

“Despite all the great work he’s done at previous clubs, a lot of it has been recruiting and winning players. He was hired as a manager to run this team and take it to the Champions League,” Ferdinand added.

“He failed in that department and that is undeniable. But then he puts the blame everywhere and that’s the part that I find really a little uncomfortable.”
