Ralf Rangnick is always worth listening to, isn’t he? The Manchester United interim manager has now told the public when he expects from his full-backs.
The German will be out to show what he has been working on when the Red Devils face Middlesbrough in the FA Cup on Friday night.
Speaking at the pre-match conference on Thursday, Rangnick took a moment to share what we should all expect from United’s wide defenders.
“They have to be defenders and, at the same time, give as much input as they possibly can if we’re in possession of the ball,” Rangnick said as quoted by United’s media.
“They should be offensive full-backs, offensive defenders. I think in the last couple of weeks, we have improved in those areas.
The RB Leipzig legend concluded to literally spell out Friday’s game plan a day for the game. You goto love him.
“It will also be an important position for tomorrow’s game because Middlesbrough will play in a back five with very offensive wing-backs, at times even with five or six offensive players in the opposition’s half,” he added.
“So, it’ll be very important that we play tactically on a high level, with regard to our own full-backs,” he concluded.
