Manchester United interim manager, Ralf Rangnick, has revealed his biggest disappointment at the club, ahead of his final game in charge.
Rangnick was brought in after the sacking of club legend Ole Gunnar Solskjaer in November.
The Red Devils were eighth when Solskjaer departed, but the German has failed to oversee a huge upturn in results or performance, with the Red Devils sixth in the Premier League ahead of Sunday’s final game against Crystal Palace.
Under Rangnick, United have largely flattered to deceive in the Premier League and suffered an embarrassing FA Cup defeat to Championship side Middlesbrough. They were also knocked out of the Champions League at the last-16 stage by Atletico Madrid.
‘Since Atletico we just didn’t find our shape or form again,’ said the 63-year-old, who is set to be replaced by Ajax’s Erik ten Hag.
‘Before then we had stabilised the team, become more stable defensively. But then we lost confidence and energy.
‘It has got to do with confidence, team spirit and togetherness. This is my biggest disappointment that we didn’t establish that team spirit.
‘I still strongly believe that there is a core of players here who are top, good enough to play for this club.’
