Ralph Rangnick admitted that he does not know if Eric ten Hag will face Man United, revealing what disappointed him most during his tenure.

It looks like Rangnick is destined to be succeeded by Ajax manager Ten Hag. Widespread reports from a large number of reliable sources confirmed that United have a verbal agreement with the Dutchman.

An official announcement is not expected until after the Dutch Cup final on Sunday. This is to ensure that it does not interfere with Ajax’s hopes of obtaining a Dutch domestic double.

But speaking at his press conference on Friday, Rangnick was asked about Tin Hag’s situation.

The German – despite the fact that he will be staying with the club behind the scenes when he is relieved of the managerial job – has confirmed that he does not know if the Ten Hag deal is done.

“I don’t know if it’s a done deal,” he said via Manchester Evening News. “My answer is the same as that of Eric Ten Hag.

“My focus is on the match tomorrow. Again, we all know he is a good coach, he has done a good job at Ajax and also in previous clubs, but at the moment it makes no sense to tell you what you think of any other coach.”

For now, Rangnick and his team should focus their attention solely on Norwich.

Rangnick confirms five injuries to Manchester United

The Canary Islands will be United’s opponent in the Premier League on Saturday. If they wanted to keep their hopes of securing fourth place alive, only a win would suffice.

However, Rangnick revealed that he will be without at least five players due to injury.

“Five players will be missing tomorrow, and some of them are likely for the upcoming matches,” Rangnick added.

“You already mentioned Fred and Scott [McTominay]. Raphael Varane will still be missing, [Luke] Shaw, whose screws and metal objects were removed from his leg and Edinson Cavani. These are the five who will lose.”

On United’s suspicious subject matter, Rangnick described the fact that his players were unable to produce a consistent purple patch of shape as a notable disappointment.

The German continued: “We had moments when we played well. I think we’ve played quite a few games where we’ve played well the way we played together as a team.

“But what we didn’t do [so far] is to do it in a sustainable way and over a longer period of time, and I’m disappointed about that.”

When asked to explain why Manchester United She was once again flattered for the deception, and concluded: “I can imagine what the reasons were.

“Without using it as an excuse, we’ve lost quite a few players since the West Ham game, for example, we’ve lost three of our attackers, who were all part of that match and part of the last second goal we scored.

“Right now we’re missing quite a few other players with Fred and McTominay, our defensive midfielders, so maybe that’s one of the reasons, but on the whole, we’re not playing sustainably at the highest level possible.”
