Ralf Rangnick has firmly insisted that he has no remorses over swapping his director role at Lokomotiv Moscow for the interim manager role at Manchester United.Rangnick has dealt with immense pressure at United for failing to reverse the team's performances since changing Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, with the Red Devils heading into Saturday's meeting with Norwich on a run of 3 wins in their last 12 games.
Without any prizes left to defend and United inching further away from a top-four place in the Premier League, Rangnick was asked whether he would have rejected the task in hindsight, but he stressed that he wouldn't be reluctant to accept if he had the chance once again.
" No, no regrets whatsoever," he informed the media in his newest interview.
" I would do it over and over once again. I do not regret that at all as a manager. You always have to question and ask yourself what you could have done better, if I could have had fun with a different development in certain games, if an alternative could have been done earlier.
" This is what constantly occurs, we always question ourselves, what we could have done better.
" I think we are all conscious it's not a simple team, the whole situation was not easy or I would not be sitting here and Ole would most likely still be here. Again, I believe we have actually displayed in the past number of months we were able to raise the level however not in the same sustainable manner in which I would have wished. That's the factor I'm not pleased at all with what we've done and attained up until now."
Aside from on-field problems, Rangnick has also needed to contend with demonstrations from United advocates towards the club owners, the Glazer family. A group of fans are anticipated to stay outside Old Trafford for the very first 17 minutes of the Norwich game - once for every single year of the Glazers' ownership.
" The support of the fans has been enormous, no matter if it's home or away," Rangnick continued.
" So far we haven't had that circumstance where they turned their emotions against the team. I can comprehend it, it's a game of enthusiasm and feeling.
" I do not understand what they have on their mind but I've heard they wish to come 17 minutes late for 17 years. Even if they do that then after those 17 minutes ideally they're still backing the team and getting behind us.
" But how much they do that depends on what we reveal on the pitch so it's a game of exchange. We can not anticipate them just to support us no matter what's on the pitch."
