Man Utd icon Ferdinand explains Rangnick's 'differences' in damning Solskjaer comparison


Rio Ferdinand believes that Manchester United boss Ralf Rangnick has already improved things at the club following the departure of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer last month. Rangnick was appointed by the Red Devils on an interim basis last week and won his first Premier League match in charge of his new team against Crystal Palace on Sunday afternoon.

The German coach, who is famed for his previous work with Hoffenheim and RB Leipzig, will oversee his first Champions League game at Old Trafford on Wednesday evening.

United will be looking for revenge in their final group stage match against Young Boys, who sensationally won the reverse fixture in Bern back in September.

Ferdinand is wholeheartedly expecting United to mirror their efforts in Sunday’s win over Palace, which saw in-form midfielder Fred grab the only goal of the game with 12 minutes left to play.

When quizzed on what to expect from Rangnick’s side against Young Boys, he told BT Sport: “I think a continuation of what we’ve seen against Palace.

“We won’t get carried away, it’s been one game and maybe a training session. But there was noticable differences and changes to the team, the structure of it, the way they pressed as a team – that’s the important point.”
