by | VIEW 556
Manchester United are in big trouble, and the question is whether they will play in the Champions League next season. They seem to be far from it, and all this has caused dissatisfaction among fans who want to protest against Glazers, and are demanding their departure.
Ralf Rangnick decided to speak on that issue: “We know that football is a game of passion and emotion,” Rangnick said. “I think we can all understand our supporters are disappointed both with where we stand in the table but also the performance which we showed against Everton.
“But I believe our supporters are one of if not the best in England and as long as they protest in a peaceful way and as along as they still support the team in the stadium I think they have the right to express their opinion.
I can understand they have been disappointed”.
Of course, the topic was also Erik Ten Hag and it seems that the Dutchman has solved everything with Manchester United, and the official confirmation could come in a couple of weeks.
Ten Hag did not want to comment on the new deal today, and it could be inferred that he had agreed everything with United. "I don't know if it's a done deal. My reply is the same as Erik Ten Hag's was. My focus is on the game tomorrow.
Again, we all know he is a good manager, that he has done a good job at Ajax and also at former clubs, but right now it doesn't make sense to tell you what I think about any other coach," Rangnick told reporters.
Manchester United vs Norwich City
United have an imperative in tomorrow's match against Norwich and will have to give their best if they want to win.
Rangnick also mentioned who will be missing in tomorrow's match “Five players will still be missing for tomorrow, and probably the upcoming games. You already mentioned Fred and Scott,” the German replied to a journalist’s question.
“Raphael Varane will also be out. Luke Shaw, who had his bolts and his metal stuff removed from his leg, and Edinson Cavani. Those are the five that will be missing”. Luke Shaw has a lot of problems with injuries and will have to be out for a long time.
“It seems that he will be out for another four weeks, if not five weeks. I think, for him, it will be difficult to be available for any of the seven remaining games”.
