Former Liverpool player, Jamie Redknapp has insisted that a lot of Manchester United players have ‘bad habits’.
Redknapp also suggested that it could take months for Man United interim manager, Ralf Rangnick, to get the Red Devils playing the way he wants.
He stated this following Man United’s Premier League 1-0 win over Norwich City on Saturday.
Cristiano Ronaldo’s second-half penalty gave Man United all three points against Norwich.
Speaking after the game, Sky Sports pundit Redknapp said,” From United’s point of view, this is what I expect from them at the moment there’s a few problems with the system, set-up, it will take time for the manager to bed in what he wants and it’s going to be a case of giving him weeks or months to do that as a lot of United players have bad habits.
“They don’t chase the ball back, we talk of the modern pressing game that managers want, there’s a lot of players who aren’t doing that in this system.
“Especially when you play two up front, you leave yourself isolated in wide areas. Sancho and Fernandes have to run with the ball and chase when they haven’t got it.
“And I don’t think they had the energy to do that today, but it’s three points, they have got some really good games ahead of them, so he’ll be pleased with the points, but he can’t be impressed with that performance.”
