If the Hoffenheim hero thinks he’ll turn Manchester United around in no time, he has something else coming his way.
Morale was so low in camp that one player considered talking to a sports psychologist about what he had to do.
Ralf Rangnick was yesterday appointed interim boss until the end of the season after some incredible work around the globe.
That includes taking Hoffenheim from third to top in Germany and Schalke into the semi-finals of the Champions League.
That is why disciples like Thomas Tuchel and Jurgen Klopp Praise him to the sky.
But back in the difficult waters of the Premier League, Manchester United are a very different fish.
Look at David Moyes now compared to his last days on the job seven years ago. He looks younger now than he did then.
Louis van Gaal, one of the greatest coaches of the last generation, left a tribute to a certain journalist being overweight – telling the media to eat meatloaf.

Jose Mourinho was next and did well for two years, winning two titles and finishing second.
He still considers 2018’s runner-up as one of his greatest achievements. However, he passed away in December of the following year.
During a pre-season tour in the US, he was seen screaming at his phone ‘it’s a bitch’ as work began to overwhelm him as all his wishes went unfulfilled. reality.
Van Gaal and Mourinho have managed some of the greatest clubs in the world – among them Barcelona, Real Madrid, Inter Milan.
However, the hot chair at Old Trafford dumped them in a basket.
Look at Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, a club hero who has taken the team to third and second for consecutive seasons when Manchester City and Liverpool were exceptional.
But football and the Manchester United board ate him up and eliminated him to the point where he had wanted to cry for about a month.
If you think he had gray hair before…
So don’t think a quick dose of gegenpressing will change that overnight.
The problem is United and its success is Sir Alex Ferguson.
No plan, philosophy or DNA was left on the computer when he walked out the door in May 2013.
It’s all in his head, in his character, in him. When he goes, everything follows him.
SIR ALEX SPECIAL
Each of the four managers has since been criticized for not being able to win the league, or even come close despite investing around £1 billion in players.
However, if all, or any of them, Sir Alex wasn’t so special after all.
You run this place, you control it. The club even took to social media before he left. Then everything changed.
Suddenly there was a giant to control. The Frankenstein of football without its creator.
The scariest team to face in the league has now become a ‘three-pointer possibility’.
Manchester United remained the country’s biggest club despite not winning the title between 1967 and 1993. They just couldn’t do it.
No matter how hard they try now, they just can’t do it.
If the man in need of change is someone so highly regarded that he has been the head of sports and development at Lokomotiv Moscow for the past five months – which no club has ever sniffed. their next owner – that’s great.
‘Oh, but he’ll keep them pressed’, ‘Ronaldo won’t work’, ‘He’ll energize the players’ – it’s unbelievable how many bad things have been said about United .
The point is: If he’s taken United from where they’re currently in the top four, he’s done well.
Take a look at the last two matches – a win against Villarreal and a draw at Chelsea.
Manchester United played as a third-place team against a big gun in the FA Cup.
‘Let’s go boys and see what we can get’. That’s where they are.
If a coach who has all the players flocking to look for him on Wikipedia changes things quickly, he’s a genius.
First he needs to remind captain Harry Maguire how to defend. Remind Luke Shaw that last season he was the best full-back in the world. Trying to teach Aaron Wan-Bissaka how to pass.
Remind Scott McTominay that he could be one of United’s great midfielders – he has that in him.
Make Marcus Rashford one of the best players in the Premier League.
Prevent Bruno Fernandes from stroking and make him start the game with the nape of the neck again.
Continue the work Michael Carrick did in just two games by getting the most out of Jadon Sancho.
And please forget the nonsense that Cristiano Ronaldo is not suitable. The guy is a goal-scoring phenomenon.
United are now a traveling circus and now have a new ringleader in the big top.
It will continue to be entertaining. But the top of the bill? Do not hold your breath.
