Rangnick Questions If Man U Deserve Europe

Loss to Everton adds to desperation at Old Trafford.

Ralf Rangnick, better known to us as Thor: Ragnarok, says Manchester United "do not deserve" to play in the Champions League next season if they perform how they did against Everton.

United lost 1-0 at Goodison Park despite Everton going into the game just a point above the relegation zone.

The loss put a big dent in United's chances of finishing in the top four and Champions League football next season.



"If we play like we did here we just don't deserve it," said Rangnick.

"The players themselves should be eager to play international football, if possible Champions League. In order to qualify for Europe you have to be able to score in 95 minutes in a game like this."

Rangnick's side have won just 1 out of their last five matches, and are in search of a full-term manager. It's been reported by a number of outlets that United are close to appointing Ajax boss Erik ten Hag as their new manager at the end of the season.

While the process has taken some time, substitute teacher Rangnick said uncertainty over the managerial situation was no excuse for their underwhelming performances.

"I don't think this should be an excuse," Rangnick told BT Sport. "We are Manchester United. We have lots of international players. There shouldn't be an alibi."
