Manchester United boss Ralf Rangnick could be one of the worst managerial appointments in the history of the Premier League, claims former Arsenal winger Perry Groves. Rangnick lost for the first time in English football on Monday when he saw his side fall to a 1-0 defeat at home to Wolves.

Rangnick was appointed as United’s interim boss until the end of the season following the sacking of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.

However, his team’s performances have left plenty to be desired.

The Red Devils have limped to wins over Crystal Palace and Norwich and were lucky to pick up a point away at struggling Newcastle.

United’s most comfortable win under Rangnick came with a 3-1 victory over Burnley on December 30 but it all came crashing down on Monday.

Joao Moutinho’s late strike sealed a fine win for Bruno Lage’s side.

Groves says it is clear the United players are not listening to what Rangnick wants them to do.

And he already thinks the appointment of Rangnick is a big mistake from the Old Trafford club.

“I think he could go down as one of the worst appointments in Premier League history,” Groves told talkSPORT.

“The players, you can tell that they’re not having Rangnick.

“You can tell that they’re not convinced by him. They’re not actually putting the effort in they should be.”

Speaking after the defeat, Rangnick admitted there was plenty of work to be done.

But he didn’t want to single out any players for below-par performances.

Rangnick said: “The game showed we still have a lot of work to do and still have to take quite a few steps, both collectively and individually, especially against the ball, but in the first half in particular, in possession of the ball, there were too many unforced errors, too many giveaways.

“In those parts of the game, we just have to get better.

“I don’t want to speak about individual performances of players, it is an issue of the whole team. We can only improve the team if we get better collectively.

“It doesn’t make sense now to talk about individual performances.”
