Over the phone: Did Rangnick manage the Manchester United match against Chelsea?

The decisions taken by Manchester United coach Michael Carrick to meet Chelsea in the English Premier League caused a great controversy in the English football community.

Carrick had decided to substitute the Portuguese legend Cristiano Ronaldo in his team’s meeting with Chelsea, the leader of the English Premier League standings, “Premier League”, before leading his team to a difficult draw at Stamford Bridge 1-1.

The British newspaper, “Evening Standard”, revealed in a report that Ralph Rangnick, the coach nominated to lead Manchester United, was the one who was directing the meeting from the pitch over the phone, and that Carrick’s decisions were nothing but instructions from the awaited coach for the Devils.

And the newspaper, quoting its correspondent at the match stadium, James Robson, said that Darren Fletcher, United’s sporting director, was present, unlike usual, on the team’s bench, adding: “Fletcher was communicating with someone – most likely Rangnick – and then sending instructions to the players.” .

It is expected that Manchester United will announce during the coming period the name of Rangnick as the successor to Norwegian coach Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, who was sacked last week due to poor results.

BBC editor-in-chief Phil McNulty was also present at the match, and confirmed that Fletcher was speaking to someone through an earpiece.

big controversy

For his part, Gary Neville, the former Manchester United defender and current sports analyst for the “Sky Sports” network, believes that the influence of the expected coach for United was made clear during the Chelsea meeting.

And Neville said, in a tweet on the social networking site “Twitter”, “Many believe that Michael Carrick removed Cristiano Ronaldo from the formation and put a defensive midfielder.”

And he continued: “I have a feeling that the new coach is the one who put the line-up, there is a big difference between that squad and the team that played last week. From the first minute of the first half, the coach’s influence on the team appears in the style and way of playing.”

What Neville said is consistent with the fact that United relied on advanced pressure since the start of the match, which is the opposite of the team’s playing style with Solskjaer and identical to the thinking of new coach Rangnick.

For his part, Gary Lineker, the English football legend, responded to what was said in this regard with a tweet in which he said: “There is no way that this could be true at all.”

While Michael Carrick, coach of Manchester United, responded to these allegations and speculation, saying: “This is not the case, no, we came here with a plan .. I know the way Chelsea plays, and we wanted to stop the passes of Jorginho and Ruben Loftus-Cheek.”

In a related context, Chelsea coach Thomas Tuchel commented on this claim in response to a question about the impact of United’s performance on the thought of the German coach, who is considered inspiring Tuchel: “No, I don’t think I saw this.”
