Man United will finish with their worst PL points total; Souness: “There’s nothing about Rangnick’s CV that would warrant him getting the job at Man United”; Dublin: “Ronaldo was laughing. Is he laughing at his players? Is he saying what’s going on here, am I at Man United or not?”
Graeme Souness has questioned the decision-making at Manchester United over the appointment of interim manager Ralf Rangnick, claiming the players aren’t listening to him.
United will finish the season with their worst points total in the Premier League era after falling to a disastrous 4-0 defeat at Brighton.
Rangnick said his side were “terrible” and “humiliated” on the south coast as their supporters chanted, “You’re not fit to wear the shirt” during the second half.
And Sky Sports pundit Graeme Souness went further by claiming the United players have stopped listening to the interim manager, who shouldn’t have been appointed.
“Looking at that Man United team, the guy that’s in charge now, they don’t listen to him,” said Souness on Saturday Night Football.
When I see someone speak in management I always imagine me back in the dressing room as a 22-year-old and that guy speaking to me. He’s (Rangnick) not going to get me at it. Fergie (Sir Alex Ferguson) would get me at it. Those Man United players have stopped listening a long time ago.
Man United have had 10 years since Fergie of ridiculously-poor football decisions. What geniuses at Man United sat down and thought, ‘We’re going to get rid of Ole (Gunnar Solskjaer) and there’s a guy who is an advisor at Lokomotiv Moscow, I’ve been told he’s the man’? There’s nothing about his CV that would warrant him getting the job at Man United.
If you go back to the players they’ve signed and renewed their contracts to this latest guy who has come in, I just don’t know where they’re getting their football decisions from. They’ve consistently got them wrong for 10 years and that’s why they’re in the mire.”
