Man Utd players ‘have Pochettino belief’ as Rangnick under pressure

Manchester United players believe that Mauricio Pochettino will be their manager next season, as opposed to Ralf Rangnick.

It has been far from a fine start to life under the German coach, who has been given interim charge until the end of the campaign.

There have been moments to savour while the defence has certainly shored up compared to the latter days of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s reign.

However, in attack United look clueless and there appears to be a real lack of chemistry between any of the forwards.

Under Rangnick, the Red Devils have scored more than once in just one game – a 3-1 win over Burnley – while on Monday night, Wolves struck a telling blow in a 1-0 defeat at Old Trafford.

It has led to reports that players are unhappy with the former RB Leipzig boss and are not impressed with his training methods.

While Rangnick is only in charge until the end of the season, there have even been discussions about who will be in the dugout next year.

According to The Sun, there is a belief within the squad that Pochettino will be the one to take the reins.

The Argentine has long been linked with a move to United, since his days at Tottenham, but the stars are yet to align.

However, that could change by the end of the season with speculation spreading that Pochettino is not happy at Paris Saint-Germain.

There were even reports stating that he was ready to quit and join United after Solskjaer was sacked in November.

Whether or not Poch does make the move to Manchester remains to be seen, though he is the favourite to take the job.

In the meantime, United are in a fight to make it into the top four while Luke Shaw admitted that there is a lack of cohesion in the squad at the moment.

"We have to put more pressure on them, we have to have intensity," the England international said. "I didn't think we were all there together.

"You look at the players we have, we have unbelievable quality but sometimes quality is not enough. We need to bring the intensity and more motivation.

"Inside the dressing room, we know what we want but out on the pitch we need to give 100%. To win these types of games we all need to be 100% committed."
