Man Utd boss Ralf Rangnick picks out error in Norwich win he is 'not at all happy' with

Manchester United boss Ralf Rangnick claims that he was “not at all happy” with a glaring error made by his side during the second-half of Saturday’s clash with Norwich City. Cristiano Ronaldo’s late penalty eventually clinched the three points for the visitors, although Rangnick was not completely convinced with what he saw from his side. 

United struggled for long spells against the Premier League’s bottom team, leaving it late to seal victory. 

Predictably, it was Ronaldo who stepped up to the spot after he was brought down by Max Aarons, and he buried the chance to grab his 12th goal of the season in all competitions. 

Victory keeps United firmly in contention for the top four, even if their overall performance left plenty to be desired. 

Rangnick gave a mixed rundown of events after the final whistle, but there was one particular part of the Red Devils’ performance which he was not a fan of.

“It’s also a question of body language and physicality, and this was one of the major issues that we could have done better.”

While corners were seemingly Rangnick’s key concern, Liverpool hero Jamie Redknapp was on board with the criticism of United’s body language and physicality. 

During the half-time break, Redknapp picked out Ronaldo, Marcus Rashford and Bruno Fernandes as lacking urgency when tracking back, as well as failing to find a rhythm going forward. 

Fluid and clinical attacking has not proven to be a feature of Rangnick’s early days at the helm, with just two goals scored in two Premier League games. 

They’ve certainly improved defensively though, with two domestic clean sheets out of two, matching the total Ole Gunnar Solskjaer had managed all season up to his dismissal. 

Rangnick will not have to wait long to see if his criticisms have been noted and rectified by his players, with Brentford set to play host on Tuesday evening.
