Rangnick advice for Manchester United future

Ralf Rangnick has offered his advice for Manchester United that will help the building process for next season.

Former Manchester United interim manager Ralf Rangnick has offered some key advice for the club ahead of next season campaign.

The Red Devils ended the Premier League season on a disappointing note following their defeat to Crystal Palace yesterday.

The club has signed a new manager Erik Ten Hag that will take charge for next season which will see Rangnick move to an advance consultancy role.

The German has now offered his advice that will help the club on their rebuilding process for next season.

Rangnick believes that the club needs to understand why some players need to move to the club in order for them to sign the right players.

“For me, it’s about [understanding] why do players move to a certain club,” the 63-year-old began, talking in his post-match press conference.

“Apart from quality, talent, the physicality that you need for this league, and mentality, I think the most important thing is that we find players for who [here] is the best next sporting step [for them].

“They shouldn’t want to come because it’s Manchester United and maybe they get a good contract here, it should be for developing their careers and taking the next best possible step in their careers. That happens and you have a completely different level of motivation and energy.”

Rangnick explained that this advice followed success with such a strategy at his former clubs, namely RB Leipzig and RB Salzburg, for whom he acted as director of football.

“This is what we did at Red Bull with both clubs and I think we did well and fared well with that,” he explained.

“This [at United] is a different level of quality that we need, compared to what we had in the last years at Leipzig. They won the Cup [DFB Pokal] yesterday and they were 1-0 down and they could only do it as a team. This is important: that we build a team that really deserves the name ‘team’. Even in hard times, they stick together, they play together, they fight back they bounce back. And this is, for me, the most important part.”

Focus will quickly turn onto the new era at United. Incoming manager Erik ten Hag watched on from the stands in south London and will start work in earnest over the next week.
