I'm just trying to test the logic.How should I know? I'm not an elite high press football coach. I'm describing the process I think is happening and will happen but we're on the outside so we can't know the detail until we see what ETH puts on the pitch over the course of next season. But I think it is the right process. We can well imagine that a player like DdG lacks the pressing skills to be retained for long but it's what ETH thinks that matters, not what I think.
Because you seem to accept that Rangnick is such an elite high pressing coach - so just deducing from what the team produced under him, football with no comprehensive high pressing - that would mean that basically all of the players just couldn't do what he would have envisioned.
If the squad, or a good part of it, suddenly ends up pressing under Ten Hag next season, how will you save your argument?
That all the players that happened to leave (out of contract etc) just happened to be the ones discarded as unsuitable by Rangnick? Or maybe, just maybe, Rangnick simply failed to coach and manage the team effectively in his short time and under the circumstances, and that is the whole story.
I just don't understand where the necessity to rate Rangnick that highly comes from. He has done some impressive things in his career, but he's never been a top end manager and just wasn't really up to this job, as I told you guys all along. Circumstances were difficult too, no doubt. There's no secret plot behind it.
