Former Liverpool midfielder, Danny Murphy has suggested that there is lack of discipline in the current Manchester United settings.
Murphy said he has watched Manchester United players refusing to do the simplest things on the pitch because there are no repercussions for not doing them.
According to Murphy, Ralf Rangnick as the manager has failed to come out and give simple clarity on some recent issues such as those concerning Jesse Lingard and Anthony Martial.
He also berated the German for the way the former RB Leipzig boss talks after games and insisted that the interim boss is ‘out of his depth’ at the club.
The former Schalke manager was employed a few weeks after the sacking of Ole Gunnar Solskjær at Old Trafford, and Murphy believes things have been getting worse, with the Red Devils sitting outside the Champions League place in the Premier League table.
Rangnick’s side have also been knocked out of the FA Cup by Championship side, Middlesbrough earlier this month.
“I’ve been watching United a lot since he’s been in, and they’re getting worse, not better. I think it looks a bit too much for him. I don’t see enough authoritative leadership,” Murphy told talkSPORT of Rangnick.
“Why wouldn’t you come out as a manager and provide simple clarity on the [Jesse] Lingard and [Anthony] Martial situations? If he’s saying one thing, he’s got to be sure. Then he’s backtracking.
“More importantly, the way he’s talking after games is bamboozling me. If he thinks that that was acceptable against Southampton.
“I could’ve done more than 20 incidents of players not willing to do very simple things, which is tracking runners, winning a tackle. They don’t do it.
“The reason they don’t do it is because there are no repercussions for not doing it and he’s not on them for not doing it, and he’s not owning it.
“I think he’s inherited huge problems and it’s maybe naive to think he’s going to go in there and change the whole XI and change the mindset quickly.
“When I’ve watched United more recently, the same things keep happening and there’s no ownership or even recognition that he’s seeing it and changing it,” he added.
