Manchester United: Ralf Rangnick critical of goals conceded

Manchester United head coach Ralf Rangnick criticized his players and their physicality for the type of goals conceded by the team. It was yet another poor showing from the team as a Cristiano Ronaldo hattrick saved them from dropping points once again. It was just the third time this season that Norwich managed to score more than one goal in the Premier League.

“If you look at the two goals we conceded, especially the first one, we had the ball on the sideline but we were just not physical enough. As soon as there is body contact we have to be more physical, more aggressive, but we weren’t. It was, for me, too easy, and that’s why we are probably the only team in the league who concedes goals like this,” Manchester United interim manager Ralf Rangnick said. “We should have defended in a smarter way and not allowed them to have two or three transitional moments with playing three versus two or four versus two. To be honest, Norwich could have scored earlier than we did concede the first goal. We could have conceded a goal earlier than that and that’s why I’m not really happy with our performance when we were not in possession of the ball.”

“If I just think about the games since I arrived, how many games we have been 1-0 and 2-0 up and in the end only got a point,” he added. “I mean, this is easily six, eight points that we should have easily have had more. But this brings us back to the same situation that we just didn’t defend well enough in moments like this. And [had it not been for] David de Gea with a brilliant save, we could have been 3-2 down and then probably even have lost the game and this should not happen.”
