The Manchester United interim manager Ralf Rangnick said that despite the club’s loss in the FA Cup to Championship side Middlesbrough, the team has greatly improved under his watch.

Manchester United’s hopes of winning silverware this season were dashed by Middlesbrough who came from behind to put the score in parity before defeating the Red Devils on penalty shootouts.

The German noted that the club has greatly improved in its game performance and this has reflected in the present 4th position occupied in the Premier League table.

Rangnick addressing the media said, “I am absolutely convinced we’re playing on a higher level than we used to play a couple of weeks ago.

“Both in possession and if the other team is in possession, the team has improved.

“Right now we are fourth in the league and everybody on the inside of the club including myself would be happy if we finish fourth at the end of the season,” he added.

However, Rangnick believes the club’s hope of winning the Premier League title this season depends largely on their position on the league table.

Before the trip to Burnley, the 63 years old revealed that assessing the team’s accomplishment under his watch after spending barely 10 weeks in the interim was harsh.

He added that there must be cogent reasons why the club has failed to win the Premier League title for close to a decade.

“You just need to have a look at the table.

“But it doesn’t help us discussing that now in the middle of the season with me, who only arrived 10 weeks ago. This is a topic for the end of the season or maybe a couple of weeks before the end.

“If Manchester United has not won a title in the last 10 years there must be some good reasons for that,” Rangnick said.

The United boss who is in the interim to manage the club to the end of the season before taking a two-year consultancy role with the club will serve in the capacity of advising the club on who succeeds Ole Gunnar Solskjaer permanently.
