Manchester United: Steven Gerrard pinpoints what Rangnick need at Old Trafford
Aston Villa boss, Steven Gerrard, has pinpointed what Manchester United manager, Ralf Rangnick, needs at Old Trafford.
Rangnick has had a turbulent week after suffering his first defeat at Man United on January 3.
The German watched as Wolves defeated Man United 1-0 in a Premier League tie at Old Trafford.
Following the defeat, reports of dressing room disharmony emerged, with as many as 17 Man United players said to be unhappy at the club.
Speaking during his pre-match press conference ahead of Aston Villa’s FA Cup third round tie against Man United on Monday, Gerrard said, Rangnick needs time to put his identity and philosophy on Man United’s squad.
“I think everyone still respects the fact that Manchester United are a good team at Old Trafford,” Gerrard said.
“They are capable of beating anyone there if they have a good night. There certainly will be no disrespect of the opponent we’re going to face.
“When new managers take over, they need time to put their identity and philosophy on it.
“If you analyse their results, they haven’t been as bad as what people are suggesting.
“I have analysed it properly and I don’t get involved in some of the things that are said about opponents, managers or players.
“Everyone knows Manchester United deserve that respect in terms of what level they are operating at.”
