Ralf Rangnick has certainly walked into a challenging situation at Manchester United.

The new boss at Old Trafford must oversee a dressing room packed with talent, not least superstar forward Cristiano Ronaldo.

It comes as reports have emerged that the Portuguese forward is have problems with one teammate behind-the-scenes.

Rangnick has also been busy assembling his backroom staff but it now appears two coaches brought in under the previous regime could be on the way out.

And Manchester United legend Peter Schmeichel has revealed the Premier League opponent his old boss Sir Alex Ferguson was "terrified" of.

Peter Schmeichel has revealed the Premier League opponents his former boss Sir Alex Ferguson was "terrified of".

Sir Alex himself was of course a fearsome figure whose legendary Manchester United sides struck fear into many an opponent.

But according to his former goalkeeper Schmeichel, there was just one player that Ferguson himself was "terrified" of.

Ferguson was said to be so fearful that he'd even alter his tactics in an attempt to make sure the former Liverpool star was marked tightly whenever the two sides met.

United youngster Mason Greenwood is said to be becoming increasingly frustrated with Cristiano Ronaldo's influence at the club.

Ronaldo's arrival at Old Trafford last summer has led to Greenwood spending an increased amount of time on the bench, with El Nacional reporting he is "upset" with the fact Ronaldo is always the first name on the teamsheet while he is only getting limited game time.

And it's not the first time that there's been alleged friction between the two Manchester United teammates.

Kieran McKenna and Martyn Pert could be set to leave Manchester United to take on a new challenge together.

McKenna started out at United as the club's under-18s coach but became assistant manager under Jose Mourinho in 2018.

Pert joined the club in 2019 as an assistant to Ole Gunnar Solskjaer but the pair may now be set to depart.

McKenna has been granted permission to discuss taking his first job in management and is believed to want to take his United colleague Pert with him.

It could leave new boss Ralf Rangnick with more opportunity to bring his own staff in should the duo decide now is the right time to move on.
