Bastian Schweinsteiger backs Ralf Rangnick to help Manchester United bridge the gap on Chelsea

Asia's Tech News Daily

Former Manchester United midfielder Bastian Schweinsteiger believes the impending arrival of Ralf Rangnick as interim manager at Old Trafford will help the Reds plug the gap on Chelsea.

The German made the admission following United’s 1-1 draw at Stamford Bridge on Sunday afternoon, which saw Italian midfielder Jorginho earn Chelsea a point after Jadon Sancho had given the Reds the lead with his first Premier League goal.

Although United’s performance was far from vintage and, for the most part, not very pleasing on-the-eye, it did bring an end to their two-game losing run in the league and stop the rot of losing to the Premier League’s much-fancied title contenders.

For Michael Carrick, it was another good result, following on from Tuesday’s 2-0 victory over Villarreal in the UEFA Champions League.

However, the overall performance provided yet more proof that United have a lot of work to do if they are to challenge for the top prizes and top step in English football again anytime soon.

Nevertheless, the incoming arrival of experienced German coach Rangnick, who is expected to take charge against Arsenal on Thursday evening, could help United bridge that gap in the eyes of former Reds midfielder Schweinsteiger.

On Twitter, Schweinsteiger said: “Chelsea’s game style has the quality to definitely win titles this season. Manchester United is not yet there, but with Ralf Rangnick, the gap will be closed. Good luck for the next games @ChelseaFC and Man Utd!”

Rangnick, who is poised to be appointed as United’s new boss on a six-month contract, is being tipped to make a real impact at Old Trafford by a wide range of people in football, including Sky Sports pundit Jamie Carragher.

The former Liverpool defender, speaking ahead of Sunday afternoon’s encounter, believes that Rangnick will make a positive impression at Old Trafford in more ways than one.

He said: “I think the appointment of who it looks like they are going to bring in is a positive step, in terms of how he wants football played.

“Now, the top teams in European football now, and three of them are in the Premier League, and I would say Bayern Munich as well, all play that way, the way this guy has always wanted his teams to play, going back, possibly, 20 years since he started coaching.

“I think that is positive.”
