As soon as RALF RANGNICK arrives at Old Trafford, he is certain to put his Manchester United players to work.
Rangnick is best known for inventing the high-intensity Gegenpressing strategy, which he has compared to “being pregnant.”
The 63-year-old asserted that pressing ‘a little bit’ is impossible, just as being pregnant ‘a little bit’ is impossible.
“You need to be aware of what kind of football you really want to play,” the new Manchester United manager said in a video on The Coaches Voice YouTube channel.
“How about a little squeezing?” says the narrator. What is a smidgeon of pressing, after all?
“A smidgeon of pressing is a smidgeon of pregnancy.” Do you know if you’re expecting a child or not?
“Do you want to press or do you not want to press?”
Rangnick will undoubtedly bring his exhausting style of play to Mаnchester United, which entаils relentless pressing from the front.
