Rangnick makes honest confession on Man United’s top four hopes after 4-0 defeat
After Manchester United's performance against Liverpool on Tuesday evening, Ralf Rangnick confessed that it was illogical to expect them to finish the season among the Premier League's top four clubs.
With defeats like Tuesday's, it's impossible for the Germans to believe that the Red Devils will qualify for the Champions League next season.
At Anfield, Liverpool showed no mercy to their hated enemies, defeating them four goals to nil.
Mohamed Salah's two goals, as well as one each from Sadio Mane and Luis Diaz, ensured that United, who were missing their talisman Cristiano Ronaldo, returned to Old Trafford empty-handed.
They remain fifth in the Premier League table, three points behind Tottenham, pending results from Arsenal vs Chelsea on Wednesday.
In his press conference, Rangnick confessed, "I don’t think it makes sense to speculate about our chances of making the top four after a performance like today."
