Ralf Rangnick is said to be ‘so unpopular’ in the Manchester United dressing room amid his convincing battle during his reign at Old Trafford.
The German coach arrived in November after Ole Gunnar Solskjaer was sacked at Old Trafford. United tried to bring Mauricio Pochettino in straight away but they opted for a caretaker option instead.
While results under Rangnick have improved, the club still faces criticism for its performance.
Additionally, reports have claimed that players are have difficulty adapting to their coach’s tactics.
Rangnick made a name for his pressing style of play which influenced Jurgen Klopp and Thomas Tuchel.
According to DailyMirror, however, the United dressing room sees Rangnick as “outdated and out of time”.
Moreover, a source linked to the Red Devils players said: “He’s so unpopular, we don’t like him.”
Rangnick, 63, has won four of his seven matches in charge so far, drawing two more and losing to Wolves. However, United could easily have dropped points against Norwich and lost outright at Newcastle.
What else, Aston Villa have been disallowed two goals in Monday’s FA Cup clash at Old Trafford.
Ultimately, Rangnick’s job is to help guide United into the Premier League top four by the end of the season.
Another report from Daily mail revealed the reaction to several of his decisions at United.
Rangnick questions Solskjaer’s plan
The Premier League has a winter break from January 24 to February 8. At the same time, the Africa Cup of Nations will still be ongoing and other international matches may take place.
As a result, while some players will be away with their national teams, others at United will remain at Carrington.

Old Man Utd Boss Solskjaer had planned a trip to Dubai for a warm weather training camp for the players still in Manchester during this break.
However, the Daily mail now claims that the trip is unlikely to take place.
Rangnick has fears over coronavirus and he has also raised concerns over Paul Pogba’s rehabilitation from injury in Dubai rather than Carrington.
Before their break, United face Villa, Brentford and West Ham in the Premier League.
