Rangnick wants professional job against Brentford

Rangnick concedes defeat in top-four race

Ralf Rangnick says his side are simply aiming to win football matches and he will not be giving any “gifts” to any departing players as Manchester United prepare to face Brentford (Match Betting – Manchester United 7/10, draw 3/1, Brentford 18/5).

The Red Devils are currently sixth in the Premier League and are all but out of the race to finish in the Champions League places.

Erik Ten Hag has already been announced as Rangnick’s successor with the experienced German set to combine consultancy work in Manchester with coaching responsibilities in the Austrian national team setup.

The likes of Juan Mata, Nemanja Matic and Jesse Lingard are all expected to depart in the summer, along with Paul Pogba, who will not play again this season due to injury.

Rangnick says getting results is the most important thing for him and he will not be sentimental in his team selection.

“It is also about getting the best possible result and the best possible performance, and not about making any gifts to players,” he told reporters.

“So, it is not about saying farewell to the supporters. If possible, I will do that or I would like to do that, but it is also about getting the best possible result.”
