Martial’s departure is just the beginning of Rangnick’s “Iron Fist” campaign

 Anthony Martial arrived in Spain today for his Sevilla debut. It can be seen as the initial success in the “Iron Hand” campaign of Coach Rangnick.

 Ronaldo made the Man Utd dressing room stuffy.

The internals of Man Utd have been stirred up many times in recent times. According to journalist Alex Crook, there were certain divisions between the Portuguese speakers (like Ronaldo, Telles, Dalot…) and the rest of the team.

On the other hand, young players are also not satisfied with Cristiano Ronaldo. Players like Mason Greenwood think it’s unfair that CR7 is always given priority in the attack. Things got worse when the Portuguese striker publicly criticized his juniors in a recent interview with Sky Sports. There, the 36-year-old star said that young players now do not listen and do not like to be criticized.

Things got worse, when the Daily Mail revealed that up to 17 Man Utd players were dissatisfied with the game plan of interim coach Ralf Rangnick. Things have been pushed to a climax in recent times with the controversy of Anthony Marital. Accordingly, Rangnick entered Martial’s name in the match against Aston Villa, but this player refused. Later, Martial wrote on his personal Instagram that he has never refused the honor of playing for the Red Devils.

To judge right and wrong in this situation, please lower the resolution. But certainly, Martial has opposed Rangnick and pushed the French striker off Old Trafford is part of his plan to reform the club.

 Rangnick still has a lot of work to do at Man Utd.

“Players have to want to play and choose to stay at a big club like Man Utd. If a player doesn’t want to play for a club like Man Utd, I don’t have to convince him to change his mind,” said the interim coach. The Red Devils once confirmed.

Currently, there are many players who fall into the same situation as Martial, ie they have the ability but do not play regularly in the context of the upcoming 2022 World Cup. Jesse Lingard and Donny van de Beek are the players expected to follow in Martial’s footsteps. Even if he does not bring a positive atmosphere in the Red Devils dressing room, Ronaldo can also be sold when this season ends.

As planned from the beginning, Rangnick came to Man Utd to make a reform from the ground up. He has the fierce spirit of a genuine German and it will not be surprising if many famous players leave Old Trafford in the next 6 months. 

The dilemma is that Man Utd’s salary fund is overblown. They overpay players who are no longer in the plan. Martial’s £250,000/week salary made Sevilla confused forever before he decided to… borrow for 6 months. Van de Beek’s £120,000/week salary or Pogba’s £290,000/week is also a barrier if other teams want to approach.
