Ralf Rangnick may have only lost one of his six games in charge of Manchester United, but already questions are being asked of the German, with some supporters sceptical of whether he was the right man to succeed Ole Gunnar Solskjaer. 

The former RB Leipzig boss has overseen unconvincing draws with both Young Boys and Newcastle United, as well as narrow 1-0 victories over Norwich City and Crystal Palace.

The Red Devils’ performances against Newcastle and Wolves in particular have triggered criticism, with United being dominated by both sides in the two fixtures.

Now, Rangnick could be facing more pressure, with one of the club’s stars reportedly unconvinced by the manager’s assurances.

Ralf Rangnick was appointed United interim boss in late November.

Midfielder Donny van de Beek is believed to be unsure of the legitimacy of Rangnick’s promises, and is considering leaving the club this month, according to ESPN.

The Dutchman is yet to start a Premier League match this season, and has played just 71 minutes of top flight action.

Having failed to impress his new boss, Van de Beek is reportedly still considering his future, and could still choose to push for a move away from the club this month.

Rangnick has reportedly assured the player that he will be given opportunities to impress and earn a regular first team spot during the second half of the season, however the Netherlands international is unconvinced.
