Watch Highlight Manchester Utd 0-1 Wolves (2022.01.03) 3 Bad Decisions of Rangnick
1. Give Ronaldo the captain's armband
Coach Ralf Rangnick trusted and handed the captain's armband to Cristiano Ronaldo in the match against Wolves. The German teacher still trusts after the public criticizes the confusing moves of the former Real star recently.
According to Dan Marsh, if Rangnick thought that the bandage on his arm would give CR7 more motivation to play, he was wrong. The Portuguese superstar had an unimpressive match with 2 shots (1 on target and 1 missed).
2. Passive in round 1
The Wolves created a big surprise for Man Utd right at Old Trafford, they played attack from the beginning. It is this that makes the plans of coach Rangnick no longer suitable. The Red Devils pressed ineffectively and tried to fend off dangerous waves of the opponent's ball.
Wolves finished 15 times and made goalkeeper David De Gea work hard. Meanwhile, Man Utd only shot 4 times. Scott McTominay and Nemanja Matic could not contain the influence of Wolves' midfield duo Moutinho and Ruben Neves.
3. Trust Wan-Bissaka
When taking over the hot seat at Old Trafford instead of Michael Carrick, coach Rangnick tends to prioritize using Diogo Dalot in the right corridor. However, in the match against Burnley he trusted Aaron Wan-Bissaka. And to the match against Wolves No. 29 continued to be awarded the main kick.
Overall, the English defender has played quite well, but Dan Marsh thinks he still shows a limit in his ability to support the attack and Dalot should have been used.
