Cristiano Ronaldo slams Manchester United’s appointment of Ralf Rangnick last season

Manchester United forward Cristiano Ronaldo has slammed the club’s appointment of Ralf Rangnick as Manchester United manager last season.

In an interview with Piers Morgan, Ronaldo insisted he had never heard of Rangnick before he arrived at United, before claiming the German “is not even a coach”.

“After Ole (Gunnar Solskjaer), they bring in sport director Ralf Rangnick, which is something nobody understands,” Ronaldo said.

“This guy is not even a coach. A big club like Manchester United bringing in a sport director surprised not only me but all the world.

“If you’re not even a coach, how are you going to be the boss of Manchester United? I’d never even heard of him.”
