Manchester United interim manager, Ralf Rangnick, has admitted that the team has not made as much progress as he hoped, one month after he took charge.
Rangnick remains unbeaten in four games, but United was lucky to escape with a 1-1 draw at Newcastle United on Monday.
Ahead of Burnley’s visit on Thursday, the German claims he has been hampered by the COVID-19 outbreak which saw the Carrington training ground shut and games against Brentford and Brighton postponed.
“Every ambitious coach and there is no difference between other coaches and myself in that area, wants to take faster steps and larger steps forward,” Rangnick said.
“But in order to do that, you need to be able to train and, as you know, we had to close Carrington for four days.
“The last three days we were almost back to full strength with regard to the size of the squad but we couldn’t do that much in training.”
