Opinion: 3 Manchester United Players That May Fit In Perfectly In Ralf Rangnick Pattern

When Ole Gunnar Solskjaer was fired from his position as Manchester United manager due to the team's poor form this season, the club decided to bring in German tactician Ralf Rangnick to put things right at Old Trafford. Despite the fact that Michael Carrick has been appointed as caretaker manager, the Red Devils have played very well and impressively in their last three games.

Carrick led the team to Spain, where they defeated Villarreal to advance to the knockout stage of the UEFA Champions League for the first time. He also earned a crucial point against Chelsea at Stamford Bridge prior to his most recent victory against Arsenal at Old Trafford.

Rangnick will now take charge of the team for the upcoming match against Crystal Palace, and it is expected that he will instill his own playing style as soon as he steps foot on the training field.

Listed below are three players who will act as the driving force or engine room for the counter-press system's gameplay.

Marcus Rashford, Scott McTominay, and Fred are the players on the team.

Against Arsenal, the trio looked particularly strong in a high-line formation, which Manchester United employed last night. It is the pressure from the front to the midfield, led by Jadon Sancho, that has allowed Manchester United to win the ball back extremely quickly whenever they have lost possession.

Rangnick is known as the "Father of Counter-Pressing" and the "Father of Gengenpress," and based on the performances of these three players, I believe they will be the "Engine Room" behind the counter-pressing system of play in the future.
