Ralf Rangnick insists the recruitment department of Manchester United needs to be fix has he further spoke on Bruno’s contract and Maguire captaincy.

Manchester United interim manager Ralf Rangnick insists that the recruitment of players at the club need to be fixed.

Rangnick, who will leave the role of being a manager to be a consultant for the club when Erik Ten Hag finally arrive is not pleased with the way the club handles the recruitment of players.

There are several players at Manchester United that are signed but doesn’t have an impact on the team.

Speaking ahead of the game against Chelsea Rangnick said: “I mean that’s obvious that recruitment is a vital part. And then of course also the quality of the job, of the coach, of the coaching staff, but recruitment is vital yes, and recruitment means getting in the best possible players for the kind of players you want to play.”

Manchester United midfielder Bruno Fernandes was given a new contract and since then his performance has dropped.

The Portuguese lost a penalty against Arsenal and also lost possession that led to the Gunners third goal.

When asked about given contract to players without the consent of the incoming manager Rangnick said: “I don’t know what has or hasn’t been the case in the past, how much influence the former managers have had on recruitment.

“I can only tell you what I’m used to in Europe or in Germany, and as you know in almost all clubs there is a sporting director with the manager or the head coaches, together with the scouting department, [to decide] which players will be coming. For example, in my last two clubs we never a signed a player without the approval of the manager and I’m pretty sure this will be the case with Erik.

“I’m also positive that Erik will make some suggestions, then together with the board, together with the scouting department and possibly myself we will then hopefully decide the right players. We have never signed a player at Red Bull, neither in Salzburg nor in Leipzig against the proposal or against the wishes of the head coach.”

When asked he if will advice Erik Ten Hag if Harry Maguire should continue as the captain of the team the German said:  “I can only tell what I have done in the past when I was the head coach or the manager, because in Germany it’s called match kapitän, so the captain of the team.

“I strongly believe that the captain should be elected by the team because he’s called the team manager, and we always did that. We always had a board of four or five players, we called it the spielkapitän, elected by the players, the player with the highest amount of votes was the team captain at the end. That’s how I did it, I know that not a lot of head coaches do it that way…”
