Ralf Rangnick has been officially appointed as Manchester United's interim manager until the end of the season. The 63-year-contract old's calls for him to oversee the first team until June 2021, after which he will remain at the club for at least another two years as a consultant.
While most Manchester United fans are excited about his appointment, I believe we should also discuss the issues he may face at his new club, which are as follows:
1. Defensive Issues
One of the issues Ralf Rangnick may face at Manchester United is the team's current defensive struggles. If we look at Manchester United's statistics this season, we can see that they have only kept one clean sheet in their five Champions League games, and they have also conceded more than 15 goals in their last ten Premier League games.
This demonstrates that Manchester United's defense is in shambles, which may give Ralf a headache.
2. Selective Attack
Second, Ralf is the type of coach who is known to use a 4-4-2 or 4-2-2-2 formation in the majority of his matches. This means he may have difficulty selecting his attack in the United team, which features a plethora of talented attacking players such as Rashford, Sancho, Cavani, Greenwood, Ronaldo, Martial, and Lingard.
Another issue he may face is selecting two or three of these players for each of his games.
3. Providing Opportunities for Young Talents
Finally, because Manchester United's squad is already overcrowded, Ralf Rangnick may face another challenge in giving young talents a chance to shine. With the attackers mentioned above, I believe Ralf would face another challenge, giving young players like Amad Diallo, Facundo Pellestri, and Tahith Chong some time to shine.
