Ronaldo, Rangnick’s Relationship ‘Totally Fractured’


Cristiano Ronaldo and Manchester United interim, boss Ralf Rangnick’s relationship is completely fractured, as the forward believes the manager is out of his depth, according to reports.

The German was brought in to turn the Red Devils’ season around following the dismissal of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.

But United has endured another series of disappointing results to sit fifth in the Premier League and tensions are said to be building in the dressing room.

Rangnick does not have the support of the squad’s ‘leading heavyweights’, notably the Portugal international, according to Spanish outlet AS.

The relationship between the player and manager is now said to be completely fractured.

The five-time Ballon d’Or winner believes Rangnick does not have the ability to manage United and is out of his depth at Old Trafford.

To make matters worse, Rangnick is said to have angered Ronaldo further last Friday, after he accused the forward of not performing in front of goal.

Ronaldo is the club’s top scorer this season but has failed to register a goal in the last five league games and Rangnick appears to be unhappy with the performance.

The 37-year-old has not hesitated to show his frustrations this season either, with his most recent outburst coming against Burnley last week.

The forward made little impression after replacing Cavani in the 66th minute and after United only managed to scrape a point against rock bottom Burnley he stormed straight down the tunnel.
