Why concerns are spreading over Cristiano Ronaldo ahead of Ralf Rangnick’s Man United arrival

Why concerns are spreading over Cristiano Ronaldo ahead of Ralf Rangnick’s Man United arrival

 

Football fans and pundits alike have taken to social media on Thursday, to express early concerns over Cristiano Ronaldo’s fit in the predicted tactical setup of Ralf Rangnick at Manchester United.

Ralf incoming

The news which the Manchester United faithful had been awaiting all week was of course finally confirmed earlier today.

On the back of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s dismissal owing to a 4-1 drubbing at the hands of Watford, those in a position of power at Old Trafford swooped decisively, to oversee the beginning of a new era at the club.

The tactician chosen to lead the project? Ralf Rangnick.

As confirmed by a host of reliable sources this afternoon, German mastermind Rangnick will take up the managerial reins at United for the remainder of the campaign, before overseeing ongoings from the boardroom through the summer of 2024:

‘Going to have problems…’

Rangnick’s prospective appointment on the red half of Manchester, in turn, has been met with widespread approval on the part of the United faithful.

This of course comes with the 63-year-old having long stood as one of the most respected football minds in all of Europe.

As alluded to above, though, amid the euphoria surrounding a potentially prosperous new era at Old Trafford, concerns have too begun to spread – surrounding none other than Cristiano Ronaldo.

Ronaldo, who has acted as nothing short of a saviour for the Red Devils on countless occasions this season, is not exactly renowned for his abilities off the ball.

In turn, with Rangnick’s ‘Gegenpress’ heavily dependent on his side pressing as a cohesive unit, murmurs of a potential problem on the horizon when it comes to CR7’s role have mounted online:
