Ralf Rangnick

Manchester United interim manager Ralf Rangnick has criticized the VAR decision following their 3-1 loss to Arsenal on Sunday.

The defeat left United’s hopes for a top-four finish in limbo but the German felt that there were decisions in the game that should have gone their way.

“I think we showed an improved performance but in the end a disappointing result. I think we bounced back well from the early goal and had numerous chances in both halves to score more goals.

“I thought the weak part of our performance today was we didn’t defend well inside and around our box.

I felt there were three very unlucky VAR decisions. For me, the Arsenal third was clearly offside. The second of Cristiano was not offside. We were not very happy with the VAR decisions today. An improved display but a disappointing result,” Rangnick said after the game.

United are now six points behind Arsenal in the race for the top four, having played a game more than the Gunners, and the German was asked if their top four results were over now. “Pretty sure. For me, even before the game, it was not very likely but after today’s result it is gone yes.”

Attention for United will now shift to their next game where they have to face Chelsea on Thursday.
