If you do not want to play for such a famous club as Manchester United for a long period of time, then there is no point in convincing you to do so. The new head of the Red Devils, Ralf Rangnick, will be guided by these postulates in future negotiations with the players at Old Trafford.
The eternal controversy is about the future of Paul Pogba, who will enter the last six months of the contract on the first day of 2022, and then be able to negotiate openly with all interested parties. Manchester has been hoping for a long time that the French midfielder will initial a new contract, but that has not happened yet.
Rangnick will obviously not insist on that at any cost, but he is clearly determined to regain the club's power in such situations. "Players have to want to stay. If a player doesn't want to play for a big club like Manchester United, even in the long run, I don't think it makes sense to convince him to change his mind."
"This is a huge club with fantastic fans. I don't think anyone at the club should try to convince a player to stay, "Rangnick said of the Pogba case.
However, all this does not mean that the German, known during his career as an ideal expert for player development, renounces the excellent Frenchman, but obviously wants to change the picture of the course and manner of negotiations.
"Let's wait and see. I talked to him for 15 minutes on the phone, a few days ago. Let's go back, recover completely, train with the team, and then we'll see where we are." "He can be an important player of our team.
I am aware of that, but the same goes for the other players we have. I am not only the coach of Paul Pogba when he is completely ready, but I am also the coach of all other players" Pogba was supposed to return to Dubai, where he had a rehabilitation program after an injury sustained in November for the French national team, and it will be another four weeks before his complete recovery.
In the meantime, Rangnick forbade the injured players to leave the club and spend the rehabilitation period in another environment, as in Pogba's case. Rangnick, who will perform the function of the temporary head of the profession until the summer, and then take over the role of advisor in the club, has a lot of work to do.
