Tuesday a.m. Sport Update: Rangnick Rages at Utd Performance

Rangnick rages over Utd performance; Gary Neville: "They're a bunch of whinge bags"; Liverpool v Leicester Tonight

Manchester United manager Ralf Rangnick says he didn't likewhat he saw from his team in last night's 1 all draw with Newcastle.

Former defender Gary Neville  labelled the Utd. players as "whinge bags" 

Edinson Cavani equalized for Utd.

Rangnick said:

"I didn't like it at all. As I've said we are trying to get better at controlling games and today we didn't control the game, apart from some moments, at all".

"If we want to be competitive in this ground we have to play physically. We have to get physical. This was not the case in many parts of the game and therefore we were struggling.

Newcastle manager Eddie Howe: "I didn't think we deserved to concede, and we also created chances. How David De Gea saved that from Almiron at the end I don't know".

"They're a bunch of whinge-bags," pundit Neville said at half-time on Sky Sports. "Watch them on that pitch. I'll not go into names but they're whinging at each other, arms up in the air complaining about everything. Honestly, they were absolutely shocking in that first half.

"They got the last manager the sack. Ralf Rangnick is not going to get the sack, he's only had two or three weeks with them, but they'll get a lot of managers the sack if they carry on like that, because that's a really, really poor performance.

.......

"There's no pressing, no urgency, the basics of the game," he said. "Every single battle of the game they've lost. That's been a really poor performance. Not one single thing has gone right as a team. Not one single player can go in at half-time and say they've done their jobs or done themselves justice."
