Manchester United boss Ralf Rangnick was happy with their form for Saturday’s 2-2 draw at Aston Villa.
United go to Brentford tomorrow night.
On performances in the FA Cup and Premier League games against Aston Villa, Rangnick began: “We played a lot better in the league game, we were really good for the first 70 minutes and we have to build up on that. It is about showing similar performances for 90, 95 minutes; however long the game takes.
“Cristiano [Ronaldo] and Marcus [Rashford] trained yesterday, I was also convinced before Aston Villa they would be available and they weren’t. [Paul] Pogba trained for the first time with the whole group yesterday. He showed what an incredible player he can be; this game is too soon but he could be an option after the break.”
On how to get the best out of Ronaldo, when asked if he can fit into his system or needs to be built around, Rangnick said: “It isn’t one or the other. Nobody has achieved what he has; he was not available in the last games, and trained again yesterday.
“He cannot do things on his own, but can do them as part of the team.”
