MANCHESTER UNITED boss Ralf Rangnick gives his players two hours of video homework leaving Red Devils stars ‘dismayed’, according to reports.
The German is said to dish out the analysis tasks which players have complained ‘interfere with their home lives’.
He has tried to implement a high-pressing style in a 4-2-2-2 formation with mixed results.
But he is so desperate for his squad to adopt his approach, he has been dishing out homework, according to the Mirror.
Players are reportedly required to watch footage of their recent performances which can ‘take up to two hours’.
Some players are said to have taken to the extra workload without complaint while other have grumbled it ‘interferes with their home lives’.
The videos are reportedly tailored to each player and include tips and tricks about how to improve their game.

His methods have even been compared to unpopular former United boss Louis van Gaal – who used to email his players detailing their errors and mistakes.
The Reds host West Ham in the Premier League on Saturday which SunSport’s United correspondent Neil Custis labelled ‘the biggest test of Rangnick’s reign’.
And Hammers boss, and former United gaffer, David Moyes warned him reputations count for nothing in the Old Trafford hotseat.
