Manchester Utd: Dimitar Berbatov reveals Ralf Rangnick’s major problem

Former Manchester United striker, Dimitar Berbatov, has revealed the major problem of incoming Red Devils manager, Ralf Rangnick. Rangnick is on the verge of becoming Man United’s interim manager until the end of the 2021/22 season. The 63-year-old German has reached an agreement with Man United on a six-month contract, and will then take up a two-year consultancy role. But Berbatov believes Rangnick’s major problem is that he does not have experience coaching “really big teams”. The former Tottenham Hotspur star is intrigued to see how Rangnick copes with the challenge of managing a team of Man United’s size. “He’s highly respected in the football world, however with all due respect, he has managed teams like Schalke, Stuttgart and Leipzig, but he has never managed really b...

Conte ‘is probably number one’ on Man Utd’s list to replace Solskjaer

Former Manchester United striker, Dimitar Berbatov, has said Antonio Conte is possibly the club’s top choice to replace manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer. Berbatov believes Conte can bring his winning mentality to Old Trafford. Solskjaer has avoided the sack this week, but it is understood he has games against Tottenham, Atalanta, and Manchester City to save his job. Conte is among the favourites to take the job, and Berbatov would welcome the Italian back to the Premier League. “The latest reports say Conte is open to taking the United job if it becomes available. “He made Inter and Chelsea champions. “He has been to England and done it, winning the Premier League. “Louis Van Gaal was similar to Conte in this way, discipline is the number one priority, but he was also su...

Solskjaer not right manager to take Man Utd forward – Berbatov

Former Manchester United striker, Dimitar Berbatov, has insisted that Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is not the right manager to take the club forward, judging on the Red Devils’ 5-0 defeat to Liverpool. Berbatov also said that Solskjaer is going to be in trouble if Man United don’t win their next match against Tottenham Hotspur this weekend. Recall that Liverpool thrashed Man United 5-0 last weekend at Old Trafford, thanks to Mohamed Salah’s hat-trick and two goals each from Naby Keita and Diogo Jota. “Judging on the Liverpool match, Solskjaer isn’t the right man to take the club forward,” he told Betfair. “For some fans, that’s the most important game of the season and we want to beat Liverpool maybe more than we want to beat City. “That being said, we have to look at the bigger p...

Berbatov names Man Utd player that is “probably unhappy” with Ronaldo’s arrival

Former Manchester United striker, Dimitar Berbatov, has claimed Edinson Cavani is “probably unhappy” about Cristiano Ronaldo’s arrival at the club. Ronaldo has netted three times in two games for United since he returned from Juventus this summer. Although Berbatov is delighted to see the 36-year-old wearing the red shirt again, he fears some members of the squad will be “unhappy” about his arrival. Berbatov is particularly worried about Cavani’s prospects this season, with the Uruguayan legend naturally slipping down the pecking order and handing over the No. 7 shirt to Ronaldo. “It will be interesting to see how Ole keeps the other players happy. He will have to decide how he uses the likes of Edinson Cavani and Anthony Martial. “This is when managing a talented squad be...
