Manchester United boss Ralf Rangnick refuted claims that his training methods were outdated by insisting that the development of the team during his term has been obvious. The claims followed disappointing results against Middlesbrough in the FA Cup as well as against Burnley in the Premier League. He believes that the team is making progress which is apparent in their games so far despite their poor run of results.
“Nothing to be honest, I have not read any newspapers and don’t know about those articles,” Manchester United manager Ralf Rangnick said. “The way the team has developed over the past couple of weeks is obvious tactically, and that is because of the work we are doing in training – both on the pitch and in video analysis.”
“I think it is important that the players have realized that there has been a good development in the past few weeks, in possession and without the ball,” he added. “They realize that we controlled the game, but then if we conceded a goal, we should stick to the game plan and not lose our shape and lose composure. This was the most harmful part of it that we just didn’t stick to that game plan, we didn’t have the same positioning on the pitch. Hopefully in the next games, if we have the same amount of opportunities, we score more than one goal. This is an issue, we have to be more effective.”
