Paul Merson tells Man United who they should have hired istead of Ralf Rangnick

Published

on

Paul Merson feels Manchester United should have appointed Brighton manager Graham Potter instead of Ralf Rangnick, although feels that the English manager has very little chance of getting the job at Old Trafford.

Rangnick was appointed as the interim boss at the end of November and has had a tricky start in charge, with league wins over Crystal Palace, Norwich and Burnley, but a draw with Newcastle and defeat to Wolves have taken the shine off.

The German is only set to be in charge until the end of the season, when the Red Devils are due to appoint a permanent manager, but Merson still feels that he was the wrong choice.

Brighton boss Potter has impressed Merson immensely and the former England international reckons he deserves a shot at a bigger job, although cannot see the Red Devils taking the gamble on him.

‘Manchester United are missing a trick overlooking Graham Potter – and so is the rest of the Premier League,’ Merson wrote in his Daily Star column.

‘He’s not going to be the next United manager. But say Brighton win the FA Cup this season, surely he’s going to get offered a bigger job?

‘It’s like English managers don’t exist for the big clubs so they’re hardly ever given a chance at the big jobs.

‘But I think Potter is a great manager. Brighton gave Chelsea the absolute runaround the other week, went to Everton and won. They play nice football too. He’s definitely got it.

‘I watch Brighton play football and think why couldn’t he be United manager? Is it because it’s only Brighton and he’s not a name, not a foreign manager?

‘I don’t see why he couldn’t manage United. They play great football, Brighton. Imagine if he had players like United do at his disposal!

‘But you know it won’t happen. He’s not fashionable. But if I was a United fan I’d be watching Brighton thinking I wouldn’t mind that kind of football at Old Trafford.’

Merson is far from convinced by Rangnick, both by his CV and both the performances and results since he arrived in England.

‘I’m not sure about Ralf Rangnick at all,’ he said. ‘He’s come in and everyone’s talking about him like he’s invented football and is some sort of genius.

‘United are as bad as they were under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer! Nothing’s changed has it? Let’s be honest.’

Manchester United are serious about signing a world class star in the form of Casemiro and reports suggest that they are ready to agree a mammoth contract to convince the player.

The famous Spanish news source have mentioned that Man Utd have tabled a five year deal that will make the midfielder earn a net salary of more than £34million (40 million euros).

Casemiro is now in a massive dilemma. United’s offer is so succulent that it guarantees the midfielder and his family’s stability for ‘decades’.

On the other hand, by accepting such a contract, the Brazilian international will have to give up on immediate sporting glory.

Moving to Old Trafford would mean swapping Champions League for Europa League and it is a hard decision to make for someone who is currently a European Champion and has won the continent’s premier competition five times.

AS claim the situation must be resolved soon. If Casemiro gives the green light to leave, then Real Madrid would demand a fee of at least £68million (80 million euros) to sell him.

The Samba star is one of the best defensive midfielders in the world but the Los Blancos have already prepared for the future by signing youngsters like Camavinga and Tchouameni, who can effectively play in the DM position.

At Old Trafford, Ten Hag does not have a specialist holding midfield star and someone like Casemiro will largely improve the squad. However, the question is, should Man Utd spend £68million to sign a player who will turn 31 next year?
