Football fans and pundits alike have taken to social media on Thursday, to express early concerns over Cristiano Ronaldos fit in the predicted tactical setup of Ralf Rangnick at Manchester United.

Ralf incoming

The news which the Manchester United faithful had been awaiting all week was of course finally confirmed earlier today.

On the back of Ole Gunnar Solskjaers dismissal owing to a 4-1 drubbing at the hands of Watford, those in a position of power at Old Trafford swooped decisively, to oversee the beginning of a new era at the club.

The tactician chosen to lead the project? Ralf Rangnick.

As confirmed by a host of reliable sources this afternoon, German mastermind Rangnick will take up the managerial reins at United for the remainder of the campaign, before overseeing ongoings from the boardroom through the summer of 2024:

Rangnicks prospective appointment on the red half of Manchester, in turn, has been met with widespread approval on the part of the United faithful.

Ronaldo, who has acted as nothing short of a saviour for the Red Devils on countless occasions this season, is not exactly renowned for his abilities off the ball.

In turn, with Rangnicks Gegenpress heavily dependent on his side pressing as a cohesive unit, murmurs of a potential problem on the horizon when it comes to CR7s role have mounted online:
