Ahead of the Liverpool tie on Tuesday night, Manchester United interim boss Ralf Rangnick has been speaking about the club’s plans ahead of the new season.
Rangnick revealed the club will bring in new faces ahead of the new season in a bid to make the club competitive once again.
“Yes, I think apart from the goalkeeping, we need to make sure that we improve the squad in all areas. To bring in players who really help the team to get better – again, it’s about the profile. What kind of players do we need in order to play whichever kind of football we want to play?” responded when asked if the club will rebuild.
On if talk of new manager has affected the players;
“I don’t think so, no. The players have to give their very best no matter who the next manager will be, and if he’s announced in one or two or three weeks, I don’t think that this affects the current situation we’re in. But yes, of course it’s important to know who will be the new manager, because to start the recruitment process, to find the best possible players only makes sense if you know who will be the manager and how does he want to play.”
“There might be a couple of players – and I have already named those players to the board – that independent from formation, from style of football, and independent from a new manager, that could be of interest for a club like United. But in general, if you look at the size of the way the team needs to be rebuilt, I mean, it’s not enough to bring in three or four new players. It will be more, bearing in mind how many players will no longer be here with the contracts running out.”
