It’s a horrible state of affairs at Manchester United right now, with Ralf Rangnick’s appointment proving to be a huge disappointment.
Despite his clear background, the German’s demeanour and style appear to have created a negative effect on the Red Devils squad.
More so given the club’s overall performance since he took control, which hasn’t been much better than when Ole Gunnar Solskjaer was in charge.
At Old Trafford, fans won’t have witnessed the ‘new manager bounce’ they were hoping for.
Perhaps it was always best that his tenure as manager was only expected to last until the end of the current campaign, before he moved upstairs and shaped United’s future from a higher vantage point.
Although his choice of manager to succeed him will be critical in determining whether United’s short-term goals are reached, the football director’s post may fit him better.
Mauricio Pochettino, the manager of Paris Saint-Germain, has been regularly connected with the job.
According to The Sun, the Argentinian would seemingly accept any offer from United, and if he were given the chance to do so, he would be able to demonstrate once again that he has what it takes to succeed at the highest level in the English Premier League.
A supposed dressing room uprising would be one area that would need to be handled relatively soon.
According to The Sun, the group is currently disillusioned, and it’s possible that the presence of Cristiano Ronaldo and the necessity to accommodate him has resulted in squad rotation and management concerns.
Pochettino has proved that he has the mettle to deal with any situation, as evidenced by his substitutions of Lionel Messi and Kylian Mbappe while at PSG.
After so many close calls, it’s past time for United to land their man if they want to reclaim their place among the Premier League and European elite in the near future.
