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.”
“The most important thing is that the players need to buy into it. He needs to get them working as a group rather than as individuals.”
There have been concerns over Rangnick’s 4-2-2-2 formation at United, with the Red Devils failing to impress under it.
With United players unhappy with the new system set in by the German gaffer, Ralf could be forced to change his tactics to get his side winning games consistently going forward.
