Rangnick talks about Elanga 

United have just visited Atletico Madrid’s field in the first leg of the round of 16 last night. The match ended with a score of 1-1.

At C1 this year, the Premier League duo of Manchester City and Liverpool are strong candidates for the championship, Bayern Munich and Paris Saint-Germain are also on this list. Ferdinand believes his old club have no chance of breaking into the group.

The former centre-back told BT Sport: ” No, I don’t know, if I have to be honest. They’re not close to the championship, yes it’s a knockout, but I see three or four, maybe five teams. standing above Man United.”

 Elanga is becoming MU’s hope

Paul Scholes, Ferdinand’s former team-mate, added that while the Red Devils boast talented young players like Marcus Rashford and Anthony Elanga – who equalized for United at the Wanda Metropolitano – they are not yet players that the team can rely on.

“This is the biggest club in the world and needs to win trophies. They spend a lot of money year in and year out but they get nothing. We think this year will be a little bit different from that of the club. These young players. But these young players that everyone thinks are great players … they are not yet.”

“They’re not great players until they win something. We always talk about the possibility that they will, but they haven’t done it yet and they still have to prove it.”
