Manchester United legend Paul Scholes is unimpressed with Manchester United’s decision to hire Ralf Rangnick as interim manager.

Analysing United’s defeat to Manchester City on Sunday for Premier League Production, the former midfielder argued the heavy loss shouldn’t come as a surprise.

Scholes said: “What do we expect? We’ve brought in an interim coach who hasn’t coached at an elite team.

“He hasn’t coached a big team, he hasn’t coached at a big football club like United where there’s so much expected of Manchester United. Whoever you’re playing against, it doesn’t matter.

“He’s never been at a top club. He’s coached a club for two years out of the last 10 years.

“How have United behind the scenes come to the conclusion that this man is going to be the right man for six or seven months? It baffles me.”
