EPL: You’ve got real job in your hands – Peter Crouch fears for Man United’s next manager

Peter Crouch has noted that whoever comes in to take over from Ralf Rangnick as Manchester United boss no matter the pedigree, would have a huge task in his hands.

The former Liverpool striker said this, hitting out at some of United’s players for undermining Rangnick and going public at any slightest provocation.

The German manager has not found life so easy at Old Trafford since taking over from Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, with several reports of a dressing room unrest beginning to surface.

England forward, Jesse Lingard is the latest Manchester United player to go to Twitter to counter the manager, explaining why he was not named in the squad for their FA Cup defeat to Middlesbrough.

Before that, Anthony Martial had also gone public to deny Rangnick’s claim he refused to play their game with Aston Villa.

And all these have not gone well with Crouch, who feels the club’s next permanent boss has a huge job on his hands.

“My worry has been with the players this season, a lot of people have talked about body language and attitude and these things in the dressing room you don’t like to hear,” he said on BT Sport.


“Whoever comes in and takes that role after Rangnick this season, has got a real job on his hands to make a harmonious dressing room again

“When things go wrong there are arms thrown, people tweeting and coming out on Twitter and sort of undermining the manager.

“It’s Manchester United, that should not be happening!

“I think whoever comes in, regardless of the manager, sometimes you have to actually look at the players and not the management.

“Whoever comes in now has got a real job on their hands, trying to galvanise this squad and yeah if they finish in the top four, that will be a success but next season’s got to be done right,” he added.
