Fed up United
Manchester United players have completely given up. Severely beaten by Brighton this Saturday 4-0, Manchester United will not play in the Champions League next season, it’s been confirmed. This umpteenth disillusion is the straw that broke the camel’s back for Ralf Rangnick. The interim manager had very strong words after the defeat. “At times today felt like we were on vacation” did he declare. Ralf Rangnick also wanted to “apologize to the supporters who made the trip for this terrible performance“. Bruno Fernandes agrees with his coach. The Portuguese admitted that they are only “not fit to wear the United shirt“. These disasters upon disasters discourage Cristiano Ronaldo. The five-time Ballon d’Or has discussed his future with Sir Alex Ferguson in a series of private meetings. Despite his age, Ronaldo is keen to play as many games as possible and that could lead to conflict if the future manager only wants to use him sparingly to prepare for the club’s future. Ronaldo’s future is therefore in the hands of Erik ten Hag.
