‘Almost perfect’: Ralf Rangnick lauds Manchester United duo following Crystal Palace

Following Manchester United’s win over Crystal Palace, Ralf Rangnick has heaped praise on two players.

Manchester United 1-Crystal Palace 0

Manchester United were in Premier League action on Sunday afternoon.

The Red Devils played host to Crystal Palace for Ralf Rangnick’s first game in charge of the club.

And, when all was said and done at Old Trafford, the German was able to guide his side to a 1-0 win thanks to a late Fred goal:

Manchester United are now 6th in the Premier League, but could move down to 7th should Arsenal win on Monday evening.

Rangnick praises Manchester United duo

Following the game, Ralf Rangnick has been full of praise for two players in particular.

A number of Manchester United stars, including Jadon Sancho, impressed on the day.

But it would be the midfield duo of Scott McTominay and Fred that Rangnick opted to praise heavily post-game, labelling the pair as ‘almost perfect’ defensively when United do not have the ball:

“If you play the way we played today with regard to intensity, with regard to being on the front foot, playing proactively and having four offensive players ahead of Scotty and Fred, with Jadon, Bruno, Cristiano, and Marcus, it’s highly important you have players who are very disciplined, proactively aggressive against the ball,” Rangnick explained.

“Scotty and Fred are almost perfect defensively on that. There were one or two or three mistakes, in the first-half, two square passes, one from Scott and one from Fred, I don’t like those kind of balls in midfield from those positions.

“Overall, as I said, the other team in possession of the ball, Fred and Scott are almost perfect.”
