Ralf Rangnick Is Unhappy With One Of His Backroom Staff's Conduct

Manchester United interim manager Ralf Rangnick is unhappy with coach Darren Fletcher, because he keeps shouting to the players on the pitch.

Rangnick has not been holding back with his feelings about United in recent days, especially following the 4-0 shallacking by Liverpool on Tuesday.

The interim boss, who will be replaced by Erik ten Hag in June, was honest in saying that the club were six years behind their rivals and that they probably needed 10 new players this summer.

And it seems that he's not held back when it comes to talking to his coaches either, with former midfielder Fletcher ending up on his bad side.

According to the Telegraph, Rangnick was left surprised with Fletcher shouting instructions during games and has asked the Scotsman to stop.

Fletcher was brought in as a coach by Ole Gunnar Solskjaer in January 2021 and was then given the role of technical director just a few months later.

Despite that he retained his position on the bench and within the coaching group and kept his role at the club even when Solskjaer, unlike Michael Carrick who chose to walk away.

The 38-year-old has also been part of the meetings to decide who would take over from Rangnick, according to the report something that has also annoyed the German as he wanted the job permanently.

Fletcher also has opted to participate in training sessions, when the first team have been short of a player through injury, something that has also surprised Rangnick.

It seems unlikely that the five times Premier League winner will remain on the bench next season, when Ten Hag takes over at Old Trafford.

The Ajax boss is likely to have more say on the coaching staff than Rangnick has had during his interim spell in the dugout and it has been claimed he's hoping to bring someone in who knows the club.

Former assistant manager Steve McClaren, who sat alongside Sir Alex Ferguson during the club's Treble winning season of 1998/99, has been linked with a role.

Ten Hag, and whoever he does bring with him, certainly have a hell of a job on their hands, with the team in disarray in recent months.
