Manchester United interim boss has highlighted what he wants to achieve at Old Trafford within the short term, while insisting that the club is not all about Cristiano Ronaldo and Bruno Fernandes’ partnership.
Rangnick said he wants to have every player play in his best possible position in Man United’s squad and not just Ronaldo and Fernandes.
Ronaldo has scored 14 goals in all competitions for Man United so far this season, while Fernandes, one of the club’s key players last season, has suffered a dip in form, prompting questions on whether the pair can play together in Rangnick’s team.
Fernandes was suspended for Man United’s Premier League 3-1 victory over Burnley on Thursday and Rangnick said he was pleased with the way his players adapted.
“Against Burnley, we had to play without Bruno [Fernandes] and again we did well, we played with two strikers, two wingers, two number sixes, every player in his best possible position,” Rangnick told Sky Sports.
“This is another thing we are trying to achieve, no matter which formation we are trying to play we have every player in his best possible position.
“So it’s not only about the partnership between Cristiano and Bruno. It’s about partnerships between other players.”
Man United will face Wolves in their next game on Monday night at Old Trafford.
