Ralf Rangnick absolutely wanted to get a star to United
“I spoke to the board and said: ‘Shouldn’t we at least talk about it and try to analyze whether we can get a player either on a rental basis or as a fixed contract?'” The end was the answer: no. “
“I still believe that we should at least have tried it,” Rangnick made the club bosses slight allegations. “It could have been worthwhile to try it, but we don’t have that,” said the 63-year-old.
