Several Manchester United fans demonstrated at the training center on Friday to show their animosity towards the Glazer family that runs the club. The Red Devils and Ralph Rangnick listen to this popular thunder.
Manchester United are living a season far beyond expectations, only seventh in the Premier League after 31 days. At the start of the championship, Ole Gunnar Solskjor had not suffered a series of poor results the previous November and his replacement, Ralf Rangnik, did not particularly improve the situation.
“We can all understand that our supporters are disappointed”, says Rangnik
According to British media reports, Red Devils fans performed at the Carrington Training Center this Friday. These, against the Glazer family who run the club, estimated the number of banners to be hoisted, about thirty.
“We all know football is a game of passion and emotion. I think we can all understand that our supporters are disappointed, both by our position in the standings but also by our performance,” Rangnik reacted at the press conference. I still believe that our supporters are the best, if not the best, in England, and as long as they perform calmly and always support the team at the stadium, they have the right to express their opinion.”
Manchester United have said they “respect the opinion of the fans”. Protesters are asking all supporters to wait 17 minutes this Saturday to enter Old Trafford for the championship match against Norwich. A figure that corresponds to the number of presidential years of the American family.
Seven days before the end, Manchester United are not sure of a qualifying spot for the European competition and anger is mounting. Appointed acting until the end of the season, Ralph Rangnick will not extend the adventure on the Mankunian bench beyond current practice. Dutch technician Erik ten Haag, who is currently based at Ajax Amsterdam, is regularly cited as the big favorite to replace the German coach.
