Get ready for Rangnick's press conference

Tuesday 18 January 2022 07:00

Two Premier League fixtures for Manchester United this week means the media have two opportunities to put their pre-match questions to interim manager Ralf Rangnick.

The first of these is today (Tuesday), on the eve of the Reds' midweek game against Brentford, and it will be shown in full in The Manager's Press Conference show on MUTV, and the Manchester United App at 12:30 GMT. 

Thereafter, fans can catch up by watching it via our on-demand video clips, as well as reading all the key quotes as Rangnick fields questions on topics that could include the availability of Cristiano Ronaldo and Marcus Rashford, after the attacking pair missed Saturday's 2-2 draw against Aston Villa.
The fact that United are visiting Brentford for the first time in the Premier League may be a talking point, as might the fixture schedule - this game would have been played in mid-December had a COVID-19 outbreak not caused it to be postponed.

Rangnick could also be asked for his thoughts on his opposite number, the Bees' Danish boss Thomas Frank, who has drawn praise for the way his attractive team have played against the likes of Liverpool and more recently Chelsea and Manchester City at their new Brentford Community Stadium.
Our interim manager is also set to hold a press conference on Friday, as usual, when the focus will then be on our Premier League home game against West Ham United the following day.

The broadcast time for that media briefing will be confirmed later in the week.
