EPL: Everyone is hurting – Rangnick speaks on Man United’s ‘downfall’

 Manchester United interim manager, Ralf Rangnick, has sent a message to supporters of the club, assuring them that the difficult season is just a ‘stumble along the way.’

The German gaffer said that the club intends to enact some “big steps in the right direction” this summer.

Manchester United’s Premier League game on Monday will be Rangnick’s last game at Old Trafford as United host Brentford.

United will climb sixth in the Premier League with a victory over the Bees as the disappointing season looks set to have an equally underwhelming end.

Ralf Rangnick will handover to Erik ten Hag at the end of the campaign and as he assumes a consultancy while taking charge of the Austria national team.

However, the former RB Leipzig manager is optimistic that good times are set to return at the Theatre of Dreams and that the ‘steps that we need to take as a club are fairly clear.’

“This season has clearly been a very difficult one for everyone at the club, and from the short time I have been here I can see how much everyone is hurting,” Rangnick wrote in his programme notes ahead of the Brentford match.

“I want to be clear, though: this is not the fall of Manchester United; this is a stumble along the way and, when you stumble, you have to think quickly and clearly to regain your balance so you can carry on moving forward.

“That is the position we are in as a club and if we have clarity in our actions from now on, we can make some big steps in the right direction.

“As I have said publicly, the steps that we need to take as a club are fairly clear. We have had a lot of discussions internally and know what has to happen.”
