Why Ralf Rangnick may not be pleased with United's senior players in the 1-1 draw to Young Boys

Why Ralf Rangnick may not be pleased with United's senior players in the 1-1 draw to Young Boys


Ralf Rangnick, the interim manager of Manchester United, used the match against Young Boys as an opportunity to examine his squad of players.

Despite a goal in the eighth minute, the game ended in a 1-1 draw, which did not meet the expectations of the fans who had come to watch it.

In the majority of the game, United's youthful players were ineffectual, and they only displayed excellent performances in intermittent bursts of play. Amad had a number of promising moments, but his final ball proved to be a significant letdown. In spite of getting into advantageous situations, Anthony Elanga unable to accomplish the mission.

It was an opportunity for the players who had had limited playing time as starters to secure a place in Ralf Rangnick's starting XI for the forthcoming weekend encounter against the Netherlands. They were presented with numerous opportunities to identify themselves as strong candidates, but they were unable to do so and will likely find it difficult to establish themselves as regular starts in the senior team moving ahead.

Clearly, this was the opportunity that Jesse Lingard had been waiting for, and unfortunately for him, he blew it entirely. A disappointing performance by the offensive midfielder, who did not look to be in the right frame of mind for the game.

It was necessary for Lingard to demonstrate some movement in order to remain in contention for the final few games of the season. Rather, it appears that he will be spending an increasing lot of time on the bench in the coming season.

During the first half, Donny van de Beek made a sloppy pass on the edge of his box, which resulted in the equalizer for the Young Boys.

United interim manager Ralf Rangnick stated after the game that he had warned his players about Young Boys' pressing and the dangers it posed. He also expressed disappointment that the team had conceded a goal in such a reckless manner.

Van van Beek made no indication that he wished to take over from either Fred or Scott McTominay, which was a letdown for the audience.

On the night, Aaron Wan-Bissaka was perhaps Manchester United's weakest performer, since he was also a contributing factor to the team's bad defending, which resulted in the game's equalizer.

Wan-mistakes Bissaka's included mistimed tackles as well as being dragged out of position while trying to open up space on his side of the defensive line to allow the offense to get more opportunities to score.

He lacked quality in possession of the ball and was unable to complete a precise cross. Diogo Dalot appears to have clinched his place in the squad for the weekend.
