Man United legends tear into Rangnick

World News

Manchester United legends Paul Scholes and Rio Ferdinand have slammed interim manager Ralf Rangnick for his side's UEFA Champions League exit on Tuesday night.

The Red Devils have been knocked out of the Champions League following a slender 1-0 defeat to Atletico Madrid at Old Trafford, and Diego Simeone's side advanced 2-1 on aggregate.

The English outfit was optimistic heading into the fixture, as their win over Tottenham Hotspur over the weekend inspired confidence in the dressing room. However, that would prove to be short-lived, as the club will now go five seasons in a row without winning a single trophy, per Goal.

Also, their star player Cristiano Ronaldo will finish a season without a club trophy since 2009/10 season, according to ESPN.

However, Scholes was left more unimpressed with the German interim coach and questioned his short-term appointment.

"How he [Rangnick] was chosen to be a manager for this club for six months... I don't know," he told BT Sport. ​

"The very first thing this club needs to do to get anywhere near winning the league again is getting in a proper coach who works for this team."​

Meanwhile, Ferdinand said not even the likes of Kylian Mbappe or Erling Haaland would salvage a trophy for the current United team.

"If you bring in Mbappé and Haaland this summer, Man United aren't winning the league," he said. 

"It doesn't matter who they bring in. It [revamp] needs to be from the top down."

Here are the best-paid players in this season's Champions League, according to Radio Times.
