Ralf Rangnick sees his successor Erik Ten Hag as a coach of the Premier League Club Manchester United in front of severe tasks.
“You do not even need glasses to see and analyze where the problems are,” said the 63-year-old former coach and Erik Tens chief of the Football Bundesliga club RB Leipzig. It is not sufficient to implement small changes.
“In medicine, it would be said that it is an open heart surgery. If everyone realizes that this has to happen, and work together, it does not take years to take.”
The choice of the association for the new Dutch coach, which is currently trained Ajax Amsterdam, rangnick is positive at the United website. “I think that’s a very good choice, probably one of the best, if not the best choice that the club could make,” he said.
The team is in the opinion of Rangnick before a change. He did not talk to Ten Hag, “but if he asks me personally in my opinion, of course, I am ready and will to talk to him about my experiences,” he said. “But on the other hand, he will have his own ideas. That it is not only three or four players, it is clear. Considering how many contracts from players leak.”
Rangnick has been coach of the English record champion since the beginning of December. After his contract in June, he should work as a consultant for the club. Whether that comes, he also wants to depend on Ten Hag. “Does he want to talk to someone like me, how tight does he want to work together? These are the things we have not talked about,” said Rangnick.
