United have just finished their worst season in Premier League history and finished sixth with 58 points, 35 behind the Manchester City League.
The bad end of the season could have been caused by tensions in the team, which saw a split that was exacerbated by Rangnick’s remarks about various players, including Cristina Ronald, Captain Harry Maguire, Marcus Rashford and Edinson Cavani.

“British players tended to stick together while many foreign boys took the lead from Ronald,” he told ESPN.
“It was very upset when it was announced that some of the team were not happy with Maguire as captain, but that was the reality.”
The bad feeling began to spread to the players – families and representatives – who said that two rival groups were involved in passionate exchanges in Madrid before the first February 16 match of the Champions League against Atletico.
