Wayne Rooney Finally Explains His Concerns With Ralf Rangnick’s 4-2-2-2 Formation

Speaking to The Athletic about his thoughts on Ralf Rangnick’s tactics at Man United, Wayne Rooney said: “It had got to the point with Ole where everyone could see it was coming to an end. With the new manager now, you don’t know.

“I’m sure it’s a lot different to anywhere he has managed before. There’s a lot more pressure, managing a lot of high-profile players.

“I was at his first game against Crystal Palace and I thought they looked very good. My only concern, with that shape, was that when you come up against better teams — Liverpool, Man City, Arsenal — you could get punished.”
