Patrice Evra made a series of bizarre comments ahead of Ralf Rangnick coming in as Manchester United interim manager, and it would be safe to say that he is unconvinced by the appointment.

The Frenchman was speaking after United's 3-2 win over Arsenal on Thursday, and he cooked up a storm by saying he would even get behind the chef if he took charge of the team.

"I don't agree. United have a DNA and a way of playing. "United have a DNA. Now we're going to be based on Rangnick's style of play?" He told Amazon Prime Sport.

"Manchester United play for so many years in a certain way, and now this guy is in charge of United's style of play. I'm starting to get very frustrated.

"Who is Rangnick? Did he win many trophies as a manager? I feel like he should may be a football director and go to the academy, teach the kids.

"But even if the chef was behind Man United, I would be behind him. I support Rangnick, but I feel like you should respect United's history."

Rangnick will take charge of the team for the remainder of the season until a new permanent manager is appointed in the summer.

Evra's comments went down like a led balloon on Twitter, with many citing the Red Devils' underachievement since Sir Alex Ferguson's retirement in 2013.

The United legend was also accused of having a lack of respect for Rangnick, with the German being a key influence on both Jurgen Klopp and Thomas Tuchel.

But the proof will be in the pudding, and United will be aiming to secure back-to-back Premier League wins for only the second time this season when they host Crystal Palace on Sunday.

The match sees Rangnick take his place in the dugout for the first time since Michael Carrick's time as caretaker manager came to end, ending his 15-year stay as a player and coach at the club in the process.

Rangnick certainly has plenty of work to do, with United currently seventh and facing a big battle to secure a top-four finish this season.
