He Gave Assist To Zaha – Rangnick Blames Manchester United Star For 1-0 Defeat To Crystal Palace


Outgoing Manchester United interim manager, Ralf Rangnick has criticised Bruno Fernandes for the Portuguese’s role in Crystal Palace’s goal in their last Premier League match of the season.

Manchester United went behind in the first half from Wilfried Zaha’s strike – which was the only goal of the game.

It would have been a different case for Manchester United had Brighton not come from behind to beat West Ham 3-1, helping Rangnick’s side to qualify for the Europa League.

Fernandes volleyed a throw-in back towards his own goal without looking and the ball dropped kindly for Zaha, who bodied Diogo Dalot off the ball and found the net.

The German coach, who played his last game as Man United manager, blamed Bruno Fernandes’ poor passing for the defeat.

Speaking at his post-match press conference, he said: “…We had too many unforced errors and bad giveaways, that is the way we conceded the goal.

“In fact, it was our assist, the goalscorer, in the end, was Zaha, but the ones who gave the assist were ourselves.

“There was a throw-in – just keep the ball into our own half – and the way we defended that shot was also not the way that you have to defend in this league and that’s why we were trailing again 1-0.”
