Man United in 2021: Ronaldo’s return, Ole out and Rangnick revolution

Manchester United’s season has been on hold in recent weeks.

It’s 16 days since the Red Devils were last in action, with a number of Covid-19 outbreaks triggering match postponements. On Monday against Newcastle United, Ralf Rangnick will finally get his team back on the pitch.

The interim boss steered the team to two 1-0 wins in his first two Premier League games in charge and it will be intriguing to see how they set up at St James’ Park after more than two weeks of inactivity.

With Arsenal and Tottenham flying, the pressure is on the Red Devils to pick up three points if they want to stay in contention for a top-four spot too.

Where can United finish this season under Rangnick? Let us know in the comments section below!

De Gea lifts lid on Rangnick methods

Manchester United goalkeeper David De Gea has commented on the intensity of team training under Rangnick.

The new Red Devils boss is well known for the high-octane brand of football he encourages, something that was lacking at Old Trafford under former boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.

Asked about the work being done at Carrington, De Gea said there is a focus on ensuring energy levels are high.

“We’ve been training hard, of course,” he said. “It’s very intense, every training session, every moment with him [Rangnick] is intense.

“You have to give 100 per cent every time in training and in the games. Let’s see. It’s just the beginning, it’s been a couple of weeks, so let’s see in the future.”

Brown recalls Ferguson magic

Former United defender Wes Brown has remembered what he considers to be Sir Alex Ferguson’s greatest team talk.

Brown has recounted the message sent by the Scotsman ahead of the 2008 Champions League final, which the Red Devils won on penalties after a 1-1 draw with Chelsea.

Before kick off, the ex-England international defender said Ferguson took time to address every player and pay tribute to their football journey.

“It was the best team talk I heard the gaffer do,” said Brown. “He went around every player, said a few things about where they’d come from and what they had achieved.

“The message was about a group all coming from different places, nobody growing up the same, but we were all here now, United. It was very good, inspiring.”

Pique praises Ronaldo

Barcelona defender Gerard Pique thinks his former team-mate Lionel Messi is the greatest footballer of all time, but has offered praise of Cristiano Ronaldo.

The current United striker was involved in a number of battles with Pique when he played for Real Madrid. During some of the Clasico contests, the Blaugrana legend was rated as the best centre-back in the world and Ronaldo the best goalscorer.

Speaking about the duo, Pique said he’d always pick Messi but hailed what Ronaldo has been able to accomplish in the game.

“Cristiano Ronaldo is such a different player, they are very different,” he said. “He is tall, strong, he’s really complete. He can do anything.

“He can do goals with the head, free-kicks, penalties, take one on one. But for me it’s like Messi is not human but Cristiano is the best of the humans.”
