Manchester United legend Paul Scholes has doubted the managerial capability of Ralf Rangnick to lead Manchester United, even on an interim basis.

Following the sacking of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, United opted to appoint Rangnick on an interim basis until the end of the season.

However, Scholes doesn’t think Rangnick should be coach of Manchester United at all, not even on a short-term basis.

Speaking on BT Sport after Manchester United’s Champions League exit, he said: “How (Ralf Rangnick) was chosen to be manager of this club, I don’t know. Getting a proper coach for this team is a massive thing. 

“There is some real talent in this squad.

“The very first thing this club needs to do to get anywhere near winning the league again is getting in a proper coach who works for this team. 

“If Diego Simeone was managing them, United would have gone through.”
