Team manager Ralf Rangnick apologized for the desolate appearance of the English football record champions Manchester United on Saturday in the 0: 4 (0: 1) swatter at Brighton & Hove Albion.
"It was a terrible idea - from the first to the last minute. We can only apologize for it. The performance was not only bad, but extremely bad," said the German coach.
Rangnick criticized that his team gave the opponent all the opportunities for a superior victory: "We left them too much time and space. We failed to stop their game flow."
Old Trafford's renowned club has played its last arithmetic chance of the premier class singing and soundlessly. At best, the Europa League is still possible for Manchester United.
Rangnick, who in future looks after the Austrian national team, won only eleven of his 28 games so far as United. In the new season, the experienced football teacher is inherited from the Dutchman Erik Ten HAG, who is currently still employed by Ajax Amsterdam. However, Rangnick wants to work as a consultant at Manchester in parallel to his job in Austria.
