Manchester United’s interim manager Ralf Rangnick has expressed his displeasure at his team’s performance against Newcastle United on Monday night.
Manchester United stumbled to a 1-1 draw away to Newcastle United in last night’s Premier League clash.
Speaking after the game, Rangnick did not hide his frustration at all as he hit out at his players for lacking in so many aspects of their performance.
“Today we didn’t control the game apart from a few moments,
It’s all about energy, physicality and who wins the second balls. In all those areas we weren’t at our best.
You have to be ready and able to win those direct duels and this was not that often the case. When we were in possession we had too many giveaways and even with the goal, that doesn’t make things easy.
Today was not a question of body language, it was a question of body physicality. If you want to be competitive here you have to get physical and this was not the case in many parts of the game.
Our biggest problem was the mistakes we made. Even when we scored the equaliser we were not really controlling the game and taking the right decisions.” Rangnick told Sky Sports.
The German tactician only recently took over at Old Trafford, and although he made a solid start with two 1-0 victories from his first two league matches.
