Rangnick 'apareció en el entrenamiento de Man Utd en el día equivocado’ y condujo de regreso a casa

MANCHESTER UNITED players have been joking around at Ralf Rangnick’s expense after he reportedly turned up at the training ground on the wrong day.

El Alemán, 63, is believed to have arrived at an empty Carrington on Tuesday morning after United beat Aston Villa 1-0 in the FA Cup the previous day.

Rangnick was expecting to see the usual Covid testing units to check on arrivals to Carrington.

But when there was no sign of any life the United boss quickly did a U-turn and headed home.

As reported by the Correo diario, a club insider said: “He called inside from his car to ask where the testers were and was reminded the players were off. Then he drove away.

It was the talk of the training ground. The players were all joking about it.

mientras tanto, United are still on the hunt for Rangnick’s permanent replacement.

Reports have linked Inter Milan manager Simone Inzaghi to the Old Trafford dugout with the Italian said to be currently learning English.

But Rangnick is determined to have a positive influence on the squad while he remains in charge.

And he is keen for Cristiano Ronaldo to continue dishing out advice to his team-mates.

Rangnick said: “The older and younger players have to play as a team and be united on the pitch.

“We have so many top, talented players and it brings me back to what Cristiano said — we have to work and develop as a team together.

“If it’s necessary to speak in a very direct manner to the boys, it helps a lot, even in the locker room.

“If Cristiano, or any of the other players, address that to the players directly on the pitch, or in the dressing room, they are more than welcome to do that.

“We now have enough experienced, older players who can not only be role models themselves in training, on the pitch and in games.
