“The atmosphere [in the dressing room] is amazing,” said Ralf Rangnick in his post-match interview quoted by The Guardian.
“Quite rightly, the boys were celebrating. They know what a massive win this was. This was an extremely emotional game and an extremely emotional moment.
“If you score in the last seconds of the game and there is no time for the other team to reply: knowing this was extremely emotional.
“Thank you to the [fans] – the way they supported the team all through the game, they pushed us and carried us through the game. It was amazing. Since I arrived, it was by far the best atmosphere in the stadium.”
The interim boss reserved special praise for Marcus Rashford, who came off the bench to net the last-gasp winning goal.
“He’s one of the top strikers in England,” said Rangnick of Rashy. “We know the qualities he has.
“He has almost everything a modern striker needs: pace, skill, the size and physicality.
“In the end, it’s all about confidence for strikers and I’m pretty sure those two goals will have raised the level of confidence with Marcus and now it’s about taking steps, it’s about continuity.
“I think he can play a very important role for the rest of the season for us.”
After a visible dip in form post-surgery, the 24-year-old appears to have regained his confidence in front of the net.
Indeed, the win was emotional for the Red Devils and hopefully, this will give us the fuel to turn the season around.
