Man Utd has had a tough season and Ralf Rangnick says they must fight to reach the top of Europe again.


What did Ralf Rangnick say?

The Red Devils’ season should now be focused on securing Champions League football for the next term, head coach Ragnick admits, with the German believing a top-four finish is the best the club can now hope for. Man Utd suffered a poor season after last year’s second-place finish in the PL and Europa League, with Solskjaer to pay for poor form at Old Trafford. His successor has so far struggled to reverse the rot, even with some improvements, and now Ralf has acknowledged that their priority should be to make top European football again as an absolute must.

In his pre-match press conference ahead of his side’s trip to Brighton this week, Ralf Rangnick said that right now this is exactly what Man Utd needs and wants to finish fourth in the league. According to Ralf, this is the highest achievement they can achieve. Champions League, continue, that is not easy. But in the league, that’s number four, that’s what they need to achieve and what they’re aiming for.

Ralf insists that Man Utd can’t look beyond the here and now either, adding that he knows what’s needed for next season, but now is not the time to discuss it with everyone. Rangnick is fully focused on tomorrow, getting the best out of this season, and then it’s time to talk about the next steps for the next couple of years.


They are people, not robots

While Ralf has seen only one loss in more than a dozen games since taking over from Ole Gunnar Solskjær, the struggle to turn capital draws into wins remains a point of worry among fans and pundits, with several major downfalls. Ahead of a return to Champions League action next week against Atlético Madrid, Ralf Rangnick has revealed himself as sports psychologist Sascha Lense helping to convert his chances into the future.

Rangnick added that if you’re 1-0 up in the last couple of games when they concede the equalizer, it also affects the minds of the players. They are people, not robots. Ralf Rangnick spoke to Lense about it and they talk to the players one by one and why they conceded a goal and what they have to do to score a second or third goal.
