According to reports, Ralf Rangnick has been given the task of preparing a ‘shame dossier’ for Manchester United’s new manager Erik ten Hag.

Last week, United confirmed that the Ajax head coach will replace Rangnick as manager at the end of the season.

United have ended the season in miserable form with just two wins in their last eight Premier League matches and they will almost certainly miss Champions League football next season.

Rangnick already delivered a devastating assessment of United’s current situation following their 4-0 defeat to Liverpool last week, claiming the team is six years behind Jurgen Klopp’s side and could need up to 10 new players this summer.

According to the Sunday Mirror, United’s hierarchy has asked Rangnick to send a transfer to Ten Hag, and it is understood that the German will not hold back from handing down his sentence.

The report claims that Rangnick has called United’s players ‘selfish, over-inflated, lack of quality and too powerful’, and claims that some members of the squad have ignored his tactical instructions.

Rangnick has also told United’s board that some players ‘are not fit for purpose’ and believes that Aaron Wan-Bissaka, who was a £ 50m signing in 2019, Eric Bailly, Phil Jones, Victor Lindelof and Anthony Martial are not at the required level. .

Rangnick is believed to feel the need to bring in two high-energy midfielders, as well as a playmaker, and has urged the club’s hierarchy to avoid picking up older players such as Edinson Cavani, who has only started six Premier League games this season.

But despite facing heavy criticism for his performances this season, Rangnick believes captain Harry Maguire should not be immediately written off when Ten Hag enters this summer.

In an candid interview after United’s defeat to Arsenal on Saturday, Scott McTominay admitted that there are problems inside the locker room at Old Trafford.

“There are a whole lot of issues in terms of players, staff and everything higher up,” McTominay said.

But for us, when you come home and look in the mirror, you can not be content with cashing in three at Arsenal, as we deserved to win the match.

‘We had a half decent match today, but the faith, so great in football, is just not there at the moment.

‘The last four games are about pride for us. We need to finish as well as we can. When the new coach comes in, we have to be ready for anything. ‘
