Jurgen Klopp on how Ralf Rangnick’s changed Man Utd after Solskjaer’s exit

Jurgen Klopp has given his input on how his German compatriot Ralf Rangnick has changed Manchester United for the better although he admits the Red Devils are still struggling to gather momentum to win matches.

At his pre-match press conference ahead of the Liverpool-Manchester United encounter on Tuesday, Klopp admitted that Rangnick has indeed changed the side for the better, saying that thanks are due to his countryman for United conceding fewer goals, although he did admit that the team somehow still struggles to build momentum even when winning matches.

Set to clash on Tuesday night as the two North West teams kick off at 8pm at Anfield, Klopp was clearly in a very generous disposition when discussing Rangnick’s impact on the Red Devils, claiming the former RB Leipzig manager has given them a “clear structure”.

Klopp said in the pre-match press conference:

“Ralf always tries to organise the team, that’s what he has done. United played some really good games, but even when they win it’s difficult to gain momentum.”

I think Ralf tried to organise them with a clear structure. That is what he did. United have played some really good games, but even when they win, it’s difficult to gain momentum. But they concede less now for sure.”

United is already all set to be closing in on the German’s replacement as the season draws to a close, with Rangnick poised to continue at Old Trafford as a consultant from the end of the season. As things go, it is alleged that the dice has already been cast on Ajax’s Erik ten Hag to take over as the permanent manager.

All hopes will now be resting on the Dutchman to rescue a struggling United side as they currently sit fifth in the league, level on points with Arsenal who still have a game in hand and three points behind Tottenham.
