Cristiano Ronaldo ‘hadn’t even heard’ of Ralf Rangnick when he got Man Utd job

November 14, 2022

Rangnick came into the red side of Manchester from Lokomotiv Moscow, whom he acted as sporting director, In the years preceding his appointment at United, he was also the global sports director of RB Leipzig, RB Salzburg, New York Red Bulls, and RB Bragantino.

His last managerial position was his one season stint at RB Leipzig in the 2018-19 season. However, he was put in charge of the Red Devils at the start of December after Solskjaer was given his marching orders.

While there was a brief upturn in results, inconsistency descended upon United again as results progressively got worse. Such fierce hammerings include getting beaten 4-0 by Liverpool at Anfield and as well as 4-1 away losses to Manchester City and Brighton and Hove Albion.

The only feint positive is that they managed to qualify for the Europa League, which gives current United manager Erik ten Hag and alternative path to Champions League football. However, Ronaldo was certainly not thrilled by Rangnick’s initial appointment.

If you’re not even a coach, how are you going to be the boss of Manchester United? I’d never even heard of him,” Ronaldo said, as quoted by the Sun.Rangnick was just one of many individuals Ronaldo ripped into during the pulsating interview.
