Newly-appointed interim manager Ralf Rangnick (football transfers) has certainly walked into a challenging situation at Manchester United. For one, the new boss at Old Trafford must oversee a squad packed with talent, including superstar forward Cristiano Ronaldo. However, now, Rangnick’s dealing with dressing room trouble due to Ronaldo and more, rather severe changes in the 2021-22 season.
Reports have emerged that Cristiano Ronaldo, the Portuguese forward, is have problems with one of his Manchester United teammate, behind-the-scenes.
Rangnick has also been busy assembling his backroom staff. But it now appears two coaches who joined Old Trafford under the previous regime could be on the way out.
Rangnick’s Dealing with Dressing Room Trouble Due to Ronaldo and More
Manchester United youngster Mason Greenwood is allegedly becoming increasingly frustrated with Cristiano Ronaldo’s influence at the Old Trafford club.
Ronaldo’s arrival at Old Trafford last summer has led to Greenwood spending an increased amount of time on the bench.
And now, El Nacional are reporting that he is “upset” with Ronaldo’s superstardom always taking priority. Greenwood disagrees with the fact that Ronaldo is always the first name on the teamsheet. Meanwhile, the youth himself is only getting game time in limits.
Moreover, it’s not the first time that there has been alleged friction between the two Manchester United teammates.
Meanwhile, despite football news of hirings by Ralf Rangnick for his coaching staff, there are also some disappointing departures now.
Kieran McKenna and Martyn Pert could already be preparing to leave Manchester United to take on a new challenge together.
McKenna started out at United as the club’s under-18s coach but became assistant manager under then-coach Jose Mourinho in 2018.
On the other hand, Pert joined the club in 2019 as an assistant to Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.
But now, the pair may be readying themselves to depart Old Trafford soon.
McKenna has won the permission to discuss taking his first job in management. And we believe that it is his wish to take his United colleague Pert with him.
This double departure, if it happens, could leave new boss Ralf Rangnick’s coaching staff crippled.
On the other hand, it may allow Rangnick, as interim manager, with more opportunity to bring his own staff in.
