Ralf Rangnick’s time as interim Manchester United manager is almost uniformly seen as a complete failure following a string of bad results.

Under Ralf Rangnick, Manchester United won 11 games, drew 9, and lost 9 – a very poor record across three competitions.

Rangnick came in after Ole Gunnar Solskjær was sacked after a 4-1 loss against Watford with the idea of stabilizing a sinking ship, but ultimately, the experiment failed, with the German leaving United shortly after Erik ten Hag arrived.

Speaking on Up Front, Jesse Marsch, who used to manage Leeds United and worked under Rangnick at RB Leipzig, has opened up about Rangnick’s time at Old Trafford, describing how the club had cohesion “next to zero”.

“I think he knew he was going into the lion’s den, but he couldn’t turn down the opportunity to coach Manchester United. This is a massive opportunity for anyone.

“He didn’t play classic Ralf Rangnick football, that was one thing I was a little bit surprised of.

“He felt early on that it wasn’t going to be easy with that group of players to play the kind of football that he wanted.”

He then added: “What I heard from Ralf and others that were there at the time is that the cohesion in the club was next to zero.

“That their communication with the scouting departments and the sporting departments and the directors made them feel there probably wasn’t much of a future for them there, which maybe was the case.

“But again, with any club, especially the best, this idea of the pressure from within for everyone to understand exactly what the identity is and the commitment to stay disciplined to do that every day is usually what dictates how good they can become.

“From afar, and from what I’ve heard, that part has been lost at Man U.”
