Ralf Rangnick believes Man Utd's squad should vote on who they want to be captain this summer as it emerged that the current embattled holder of the armband, Harry Maguire, is uncertain to play again this season | @TelegraphDucker #mufc telegraph.co.uk/football/2022/…

Pogba, Shaw, Cavani, Fred, Maguire (niggles in knee) & Sancho (tonsillitis) all out against Chelsea tomorrow. Wan-Bissaka a doubt. Cavani due to resume training on Fri. Maguire not trained y'day/today. Fred trained y'day but told Rangnick he didn't yet feel ready #mufc #cfc
The nerve to attempt a Panenka at that moment, at that time, on that stage, was extraordinary enough. But to do it after missing three of his previous four penalties elevated it further & underlined why Karim Benzema has few equals among centre forwards telegraph.co.uk/football/2022/…
So much fun that game to watch
The bollocks to take a penalty like that at that moment
They're like Jason Voorhees, Real Madrid. They just won't die
“At the big clubs, when you win, take a shower and in that moment you are thinking to win again. It’s a culture and we are learning that.” Guardiola on how Real Madrid’s insatiable thirst for success is the culture he’s trying to build at #mcfc telegraph.co.uk/football/2022/…

We don't want this to be the last RedNews ever though. We're quietly hopeful we'll make target of 375 Reds subbing for next season to save the fanzine. But still need 100+ Reds to step forward. It means great deal + you supporting independent culture. fundrazr.com/rednewsfanzine…

5-1. A fourth for Jesus
Jesus puts #MCFC 4-1 in front with his third goal. He's been brilliant in everything he's done. Set up the other goal from Rodri and probably should have had another couple of assists to his name but for missed chances by Sterling. With and without the ball, he's been superb

How do you legislate for defending like this as a manager. It’s every week twitter.com/btsportfootbal…
This is the first test of United’s “new era”. If it’s truly about being successful again they will listen to Rangnick and let him have strong voice. But if those already in key positions are more interested in only protecting their own power, it risks another cycle of failure. twitter.com/MedullaryRed/s…

“He was more than a coach, he was a father to me” - a ‘long read’ on the making of Erik ten Hag, the stubborn, ambitious and fearless ‘Tukker’ who defied expectations to achieve success at Ajax and become manager of Manchester United. thetimes.co.uk/article/6c41cf…

New manager appointed. Fan protests. Pogba abuse. 4-0 Liverpool trouncing. Fernandes car crash. Maguire bomb threat. Bailly post. Pogba likely played his last game. Two senior scouts leaving. Another quiet week at #MUFC. And a personal tragedy that puts everything into context.
Arsenal have terminated six contracts in the past 15 months alone to accelerate an aggressive rebuilding process. United, after years promising ruthless culls that never materialised, have finally got to get tough this summer #mufc #afc telegraph.co.uk/football/2022/…
Pogba prob played his last game for #mufc. RR: "It is very unlikely that he will play until the end of the season again. The doctor told me that it will take 4 weeks minimum for him to recover & since last game is at end of May I don't think it's very likely he will play again."

Intrigued to see how it goes with Ten Hag. If his first season proves very troubled it'll be interesting to see if #MUFC stand squarely behind him. Surely they have to do. I can't see any quick wins here. But they didn't with Moyes when there was a huge rebuilding job to do
Ten Hag, as expected, has signed a three year contract until June 2025 with option of another 12 months, subject to work visa. Says he is "determined to develop a team capable of delivering the success they [the fans] deserve" #mufc telegraph.co.uk/football/2022/…

United response to offensive chanting at Anfield last night twitter.com/TelegraphDucke…
#mufc spokesman: “Manchester United stands in solidarity with Liverpool FC & its fans in remembering the victims of the Hillsborough disaster.Offensive chants about the tragedy are completely unacceptable and we will work with our supporters’ groups to educate fans on the issue.”
Take decision 3 weeks ago to award Fernandes a contract extension (when previous deal already ran until 2025 plus option!) & double his money when he’s playing like a drain & before the new manager is confirmed. Decisions like that make you wonder what’s really going to change twitter.com/TelegraphDucke…
I’ll be intrigued to see how many players #MUFC actually clear out this summer & how they go about it. Have little expectation they’ll go anywhere near as far as they need to go or back themselves to run with a leaner squad & end this non-sensical, destructive hoarding culture
Feels like every United manager makes this observation. LVG did it, Mourinho too twitter.com/TelegraphDucke…
An aside to this but there’s a chance Fred will miss Chelsea next Thursday with his hip flexor problem as well as Liverpool & Arsenal this week twitter.com/TelegraphDucke…
