With a dressing room split, Manchester United captain Harry Maguire makes a Ralf Rangnick statement.


With the dressing room split, Manchester United captain Harry Maguire sends a message to Ralf Rangnick.

After reports of ‘tensions’ in the Manchester United dressing room, HARRY MAGUIRE has issued a defiant statement about the team’s morale.

Ralf Rangnick is not to blame for Manchester United’s poor form, according to captain Harry Maguire, who believes the players should bear the brunt of the criticism following a poor run of results.

On January 3, United lost their first game in nine – and the first of Rangnick’s tenure – to Wolves, with Joao Moutinho’s late winner the deciding factor.

That looks like a good run of games for a team that was in freefall under former manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.

However, it is the manner in which Rangnick’s team has performed that has caused fans to be concerned about their poor league position.

The Old Trafford side drew with lowly Newcastle, beat bottom-placed Norwich thanks to a late penalty, and beat Crystal Palace thanks to a late goal by Fred.

Maguire, on the other hand, has claimed that the players are to blame for their poor form, and has urged fans to be patient with their new boss.

“He (Rangnick) has left an impression; we win and lose together,” Maguire said.

“The manager’s job is to set us up tactically, which we accept wholeheartedly.

“His attention to detail and preparation are outstanding.

We have complete faith in his methods.

“It’s difficult when the coaching staff changes in the middle of the season, which happens at a lot of clubs.

But, as I previously stated, it is up to us, the players, to make the difference.

“The team has the quality and leaders to finish the season in the top four and with a trophy.”

Rangnick, who took over from Ole Gunnar Solskjaer last month, is adamant that the buck stops with the team he inherited.

The club is currently seventh in the Premier League, 22 points behind Manchester City and 11 points behind Liverpool.

And Maguire acknowledges that United fans will be disappointed with that record.

“The most important thing for us is the fans,” the £80 million signing continued.

We’re disappointing them.

“The crowds at Old Trafford and away games are still incredible.

“United has a history of coming out fighting, and we’ll do the same this time.”

We must!

“Last year, this team came in second.
