Trainer Ralf Rangnick from the crisis English football record champion took his striker Star Cristiano Ronaldo.
“He has to shoot more goals, that’s obvious,” said Rangnick on Friday. “We make up opportunities, but did not shot enough goals.”
At the same time, the coach emphasized that the Portuguese is not solely responsible for it. “This is not only Ronaldos problem, that’s also a problem of the other players. If you look at how many chances we create, then this has to change in the next few weeks.”
After the disappointing 1: 1 against FC Burnley, United on Saturday in the Premier League receives the FC Southampton. With his coach Ralph Hasenhüttl, Rangnick worked for a long time at RB Leipzig.
“I have known him now for six or seven years,” says Rangnick. “Since then he has evolved, that’s obvious, you can see what he did with Southampton.” The good relationship between the coaching colleagues must rest according to Rangnick on Saturday. “We need the three points tomorrow, and only about it’s about it.”
