New Manchester United Coach, Rangnick, Explains About His 4-2-2-2 Formation He Used to Win

New Manchester United coach Rangnick, has introduced a different formation at the Old Trafford that has offered him his first win.

Speaking after a win against Crystal Palace, Rangnick said that his focus was to get pressure on the ball and control it.

"For me, the question was how do we get pressure on the ball, how do we get control? So I decided to play 4-2-2-2 with two strikers, not Cristiano alone up front, together with Marcus [Rashford], using pace for vertical balls." Rangnick stated.

Rangnick explained how he managed to play the 4-2-2-2 formation successfully by saying that Bruno and Sanch played like wingbacks.

"They [Bruno & Sancho] almost played like wing-backs. Especially in the first-half, Alex [Telles] and Diogo [Dalot], did extremely well offensively and that's why I played 4-2-2-2. I'm a big fan of every player plays in his best possible position." Rangnick said.

He stated that he rotated them successfully, by giving Bruno and Sancho enough space.

"At the same time, with Jadon [Sancho] and Bruno on the two 10 positions, for the rest [of the players] it was the same. We had enough space with Bruno and Jadon in those 10 positions for our full-backs to play forward and ask for the ball on the wing." Rangnick stated.

Manchester United won possession in the final third 12 times vs. Crystal Palace. That’s the most they’ve done so in a Premier League match since Sir Alex Ferguson retired.
