'Huge' Rangnick claim issued after Man United report - pundit
Ralf Rangnick could struggle to handle the “big-name players” at Man United if he is appointed manager, according to Alan Hutton.
The former Scotland international, speaking exclusively to Football Insider, insisted it would take a “top, top manager” to get the best out of the Old Trafford stars.
As reported by the Independent (November 8th), Man United are mulling over the appointment of former RB Leipzig boss Rangnick on an interim basis.
The German is reportedly interested in taking charge but his insistence on a permanent backroom role at the club is proving the main sticking point.
As revealed by Football Insider yesterday (November 10th), Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is expected to be sacked by Man United if he does not oversee a revival in the matches immediately after the international break.
Hutton suggested the “pressure to deliver results” could get the better of the German, who is currently employed by Lokomotiv Moscow.

“They need that structure and organisation that Rangnick would bring,” he told Football Insider‘s Ewan Kingsbury.
“Man United need to try and play as a unit.
“But whether he would come in and do that is another question. You just wonder whether he could handle all of the big-name players at the club.
“There’s a lot of pressure to deliver results at Man United, especially with all of the money they have spent in the transfer window over the past seasons.
“They may just say enough is enough and target a top, top manager who can come in and handle all of these huge players.”
Man United sit fifth in the league after eleven Premier League games.
They are already nine points adrift of leaders Chelsea.
