Manchester United will host West Ham United at Old Trafford tomorrow and it’s a game that the players need to prove themselves once again.
Manchester United is back to winning ways against Brentford this week, but it’s time to show it on the pitch again.
Manchester United manager Ralf Rangnick faced the media ahead of the game against West Ham United tomorrow and we’ll be looking at some of the things the German manager said. He talks about Cristiano Ronaldo and Jadon Sancho also.
Jadon Sancho Is A Doubt For The West Ham Game
Ralf Rangnick claimed that the English winger didn’t train with the squad yesterday because he just attended a funeral and he told the manager not to train. It seems like the new boy is yet to get over his Aunty’s death.
She is someone that Jadon Sancho stayed with throughout his life, not that Jadon Sancho is totally ruled out, but he is a doubt ahead of the game tomorrow. The Manchester United manager still need to speak with him.
He could be available for selection, but I think that he will attend the training ground today and the manager will confirm if he will be available or not. Jadon Sancho is still adapting to the Premier League and he will be back to his best.
Harry Maguire Is Set To Replace Victor Lindelof
The Manchester United captain is set to return back to the starting XI against West Ham United, due to the recent situation in Victor Lindelof’s home. The Swedish captain will be out and he will stay with his family as of now.
The German manager confirmed that Victor Lindelof will not be available for selection against West Ham United because of family issues. He can’t leave his two kids and wife alone. He needs to stay with them until everything is sorted out.
Victor Lindelof has formed a good partnership with Manchester United new signing Raphael Varane and both players has gone really well together. Harry Maguire position could be in danger right now.
Cristiano Ronaldo Attitude After Being Sub Off Against Brentford
The Manchester United claimed that it’s a normal thing from a player like Cristiano Ronaldo and he doesn’t like to be substituted. He said that they shouldn’t make a too much fuss out of it.
Cristiano Ronaldo was looking for his first goal against Brentford after he made his return from the injury he suffered, but the manager couldn’t wait until 80 minutes before getting him off.
Cristiano Ronaldo got substituted before 70 minutes of the game and he was surprised, he is playing fine and working hard to contribute, but he had to come off for a defender. Harry Maguire came on for him and he was not happy with the decision.
Ralf Rangnick also spoke about Jesse Lingard’s situation and the interest from Newcastle United. The manager claimed that it’s a normal thing for a club to be interested in a player like Jesse.
Lingard could leave the club this month due to playing time under Rangnick.
