The three players Ralf Rangnick identified to help strengthen Manchester United’s area of weakness during his job interview
Ralf Rangnick picked out a trio of players for Manchester United to take a closer look at to help strengthen an area of weakness during the interview for his current job.
Rangnick’s Manchester United stint
Ralf Rangnick has now taken charge of two Manchester United games. The first would see the German guide United to a 1-0 win over Crystal Palace.
The result itself was not that impressive, but it was clear, despite only being in the job for a few days at the time, that Rangnick had already had a clear impact on the Red Devils.
Rangnick then took charge of a Champions League clash vs the Young Boys earlier this week.
The tie saw Rangnick make a number of changes, leaving several first-team regulars such as Cristiano Ronaldo out.
Despite this, Man United still drew 1-1 – a better result than the 2-1 loss suffered by Ole Gunnar Solskjaer in the reverse fixture with a full-strength side.

But with January now edging closer and Rangnick expected to move into a consultancy role beyond this season, attentions are likely turning to who the German will look to sign whilst at Old Trafford.
Now, an insight into that has been provided by ESPN. They report that Rangnick identified United’s midfield as an area of weakness in his interview for the job, and suggested players United should look at.
Said players are Amadou Haidara, Jude Bellingham and Kalvin Phillips:
Sources told ESPN that he explained why the club should look to invest in midfield and suggested scouts take a closer look at RB Leipzig’s Amadou Haidara, also identifying Borussia Dortmund’s Jude Bellingham and Leeds United’s Kalvin Phillips as potential midfield targets.
