In the wake of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s sacking, the Red Devils decided to go for a short-term replacement in Ralf Rangnick while they wait for a long term coach.
It was anticipated that the German would introduce attacking, high-pressing football to Old Trafford, but the former Leipzig manager seems to still be adjusting to the new role.
In a game on Monday night, Wolves beat his side 1-0 in a performance that highlighted how far off the club is from competing for a Premier League crown.
