‘He’s absolutely managed his way out of a job’: Tim Sherwood BLASTS Manchester United boss Ralf Rangnick, declaring there has been ‘no improvement since Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’
- Tim Sherwood believes that Ralf Rangnick has not improved Manchester United
- The German replaced Ole Gunnar Solskjaer as manager at the end of November
- United have only lost one of their 14 Premier League matches under Rangnick
- But he should not be a contender for the job long-term according to Sherwood
Tim Sherwood has taken a swipe at Manchester United boss Ralf Rangnick, suggesting that the German is ‘no improvement’ on predecessor Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.
Rangnick was appointed interim manager in November after Solskjaer was sacked following a 4-1 defeat away at Watford.
As speculation continues to increase on who will be in the Old Trafford dugout next season, Sherwood believes that Rangnick is not a contender for the job long-term.

‘For what he’s produced since he’s gone in there, there’s no improvement since Ole Gunnar Solskjaer,’ the pundit said on Sky Sports.
‘I don’t see any playing style differently, I don’t see the results improving. He’s absolutely managed his way out of a job.’
Sherwood’s comments come after Manchester United drew 0-0 at home to Watford last weekend, the third time in five Premier League matches that they have failed to win.

However, since Rangnick arrived at the club just over three months ago, only Manchester City and Liverpool have picked up more league points than the Red Devils.
While an FA Cup exit to Championship side Middlesbrough is an undoubted black mark, United have lost just once in 14 league matches under the German.
Ahead of Sunday’s Manchester derby, United sit fourth in the Premier League table, two points ahead of fifth-place West Ham.

In the Champions League, they host Atletico Madrid in the second leg of the round of 16 in 10 days’ time after drawing 1-1 in Spain in the first leg.
Talk of Rangnick taking on the job beyond the end of the season may be futile anyway, as he is set to take on a consultancy role at Old Trafford in the summer.
PSG boss Mauricio Pochettino and Ajax’s Erik ten Hag remain the favourites to be the club’s next manager.
