Liverpool legend John Barnes has revealed he feels sorry for Manchester United interim boss Ralf Rangnick.
Barnes has blamed the Manchester United board for the club’s struggles as appointing an interim manager wasn’t the solution.
According to Barnes, it’s difficult for an interim manager to have an influence over the team when the players know he’s not going to stay.
“Ralph Rangnick hasn’t been a disappointment because he came in on a short-term basis and we knew he wouldn’t be the permanent manager,” Barnes told BonusCodeBets.co.uk.
“I feel sorry for him because it’s difficult when the players know he’s not going to stay, so how influential can he be with the team? He’s just trying to steady the ship, and the quicker United make an appointment the better.
“It’s not Rangnick’s fault – he’s a good manager. United haven’t resolved their permanent manager situation and anybody in those circumstances would find it a hard job.”
