Midfielder Nemanja Matic confirmed that his Manchester United players have already begun to absorb the style of their new interim coach, Ralf Rangnick, and to adapt to a style of play that relies on high pressure and attacking performance, despite the effects of the outbreak of the Corona virus infection in the opposing team in the English Premier League.
The veteran German coach encourages the attacking style of play and high pressure on the opponent to regain control of the ball as quickly as possible instead of going back and gathering ranks.
“We understand his ideas and the way he wants to play,” Matic said. Gradually, we will implement everything he asks of us. Every coach who coaches a new team needs a while to adapt. We will need some time but we have enough talent in the team to get ideas quickly and play the way he wants.
And he continued: We are already starting to adapt to his style. We are at the beginning, but we are optimistic about the future.
Under the leadership of Rangnick, 63, United have not lost three matches in all competitions so far, while two of their Premier League matches have been postponed and he has not played a match since December 11.
United will visit Newcastle United on Monday, before hosting Burnley next Thursday, and then Wolverhampton Wanderers on the third of January.
