Every word of Ralf Rangnick’s press conference ahead of Brentford v Man Utd
When you talk about the intensity of Norwich and Brentford, why don’t they talk about your intensity? Because if you match their intensity, your extra ability should win the game?
“Yes, we were fully aware of how Norwich would play today. On the other hand, it’s how you react to that. Team action is vital, especially in matches at away. and we still had three points. Even though last week it was a home game against a Crystal Palace side that didn’t attack as high and as intense as Norwich did today. Hui. the next steps and it’s easier to take the next steps if you win games. The second straight win this season, the second clean sheet. These are the things we can lean on. Like I said , in defense, full-backs, central defenders and the two number sixes [Fred and McTominay] is doing extremely well and now we have to raise to the highest possible level that we are also playing against the ball. “
You mentioned clean sheets there and you said they were one of your top priorities when you came to United. How do you approach this? How do you improve the team in terms of difficulty in scoring goals?
“This can only be achieved with the whole team. It is not just the four defenders, the two sixes and the goalkeeper. The whole team must defend in unison, together as a team. Like I said, so far we have two own leaves in the league. We won 1-0 today, away, in a tough game. We tend to call these games the “30s. games 1-0 “. It wasn’t the most beautiful. In the second half, in my opinion, we just conceded too many corners, too many side free kicks and so it was a game that could have gone into the another sense. We needed a fantastic goalkeeper, a few heads in the middle of the defense. “
