The Portuguese also rap the club’s young stars for not listening to experienced voices in the dressing room.

Now, interim Old Trafford manager Rangnick has admitted his side ARE divided.

And the German has urged serial winner Ronaldo, 36, to continue giving advice to the team ‘in a very direct way’.

Ahead of their trip to Aston Villa tonight, Rangnick declared: “The bigger and younger players have to play as a team and unite on the pitch.

“We have a lot of talented, top players and that brings me back to what Cristiano said – we have to work and grow as a team together.

“If it is necessary to speak directly to the boys, it helps a lot, even in the dressing room.

“If Cristiano, or any other player, says that to the players live on the pitch, or in the dressing room, they are very welcome to do it.

“We now have enough older, experienced players who can be more than role models in training, on the pitch and in games.

“But they can also do it during all the conversations in the dressing room, or when they are together in the hotel before games. This must happen. In a team, in a united collective, it happens automatically.

“And I can just invite, challenge and ask all the players – also the older players – to do it on a regular basis.

“That helps even more in a team that we currently have.”

There are several factions in the United camp.

As SunSport revealed yesterday, some young players feel threatened by Ronaldo and afraid of making a mistake or not turning to him because of the reaction they might get.

But Rangnick says now is the time for everyone to refocus and get their season on track.

He added: “The younger players we have, they have high talent and we have enough older players.

“And, in the end, it’s a team sport. It’s a ball game that we have to play together.”
