Ralf Rangnick urges Man Utd stars to speak out as Cristiano Ronaldo


Manchester United’s interim manager Ralf Rangnick has insisted he has no problem with Cristiano Ronaldo speaking out against the team’s current game and urged the rest of his senior players to follow suit.

In a telling interview, Ronaldo recently discussed his disappointment with the latest results and claimed, among other things, that young players – without referring to United’s players directly – are not prepared to react to criticism or harsh advice from veteran players.

When asked about the comments, Rangnick insisted that he had done something similar to Ronaldo and urged the rest of the team to express their views in an attempt to improve the atmosphere at Old Trafford.

“We have so many top talented players and that brings me back to what Cristiano said – we have to work and develop as a team together and if it is necessary to talk in a very direct way to the boys, it helps a lot, even in the locker room,” he said. Rangnick.

“If Cristiano, for example, or any of the other players approach the players directly on the pitch or in the locker room, they are more than welcome to do so.

“I will do it myself as a coach – and my coaching staff in the video before and after the match – but we can only develop individual players if we develop the team’s performance. It’s not just Cristiano, we have Edinson [Cavani], we have Harry [Maguire], we have a lot of other senior players, David de Gea in goal, Victor Lindelof, Bruno [Fernandes].

“We have enough experienced older players who can not only be role models in training, on the pitch and in matches, but also in all those conversations that take place in the locker room or when they are together at the hotel for away or home matches.

“This has to happen. In a united team, it happens automatically and I can only invite and challenge and tell all the players, including the older players, to do it regularly because it helps even more in a team we currently have. ”

As for Ronaldo’s criticism of young people, Rangnick admitted that there must be a change of mentality from everyone in the club if they are to return to the top of the mountain.

“I think this has to happen in every single training session and in every single match and, of course, it’s also about what happens after situations during the match,” Rangnick said.

“If it does not go the right way, you have to behave in a certain way. It is also about being role models – not only the older ones like Cristiano but also the younger ones and how to handle those situations. In the end, it is a team sport… where we have to play together and the older players and the young players have to play as a team and have to be united on the pitch. ”
