When asked about whether the Man United players are being affected by all the speculation on who will be the new manager and that is impacting their performances, Ralf Rangnick said: “I don’t think this should be an excuse.
“We are Manchester United. We have lots of international players. There shouldn’t be an alibi. There will be a new manager next season. If this is announced now or in 10 days it shouldn’t have an impact.”
Erik ten Hag is reportedly on the verge of being announced as the next United manager, but he won’t be able to take charge of the club before next season anyhow.
The players are definitely not doing their chances of being in the squad under Ten Hag any good with these performances and fell further behind in the top-4 race after the Everton loss.
