Poor Manchester United fans really had to suffer in recent weeks. Ole Gunnar Solskjær was kicked out, in the meantime Michael Carrick managed to get a win at Villarreal. What would the starting eleven look like now under interim coach Ralf Rangnick? We play through the whole thing for FIFA 22.

Ralf Rangnick At Manchester United: Possible Lineup In FIFA 22

Rangnick is an outstanding coach and manager - there is no doubt about that. He may not be the easiest person to get along with, but he's a great tactician. The moment alone when he explained pressing on German TV and enchanted the entire country with his tactical ideas - magical. Most recently, he has been unemployed for a long time though, as the right job was not available for him.

So now he is off to Manchester United. First he was linked with Schalke and now he is going to coach CR7, that's how it can go in this business. With him, the Red Devils will line up quite differently: They will be more variable, tactically much more solid and, sorry dear United fans, but not as unimaginative as under Solskjaer. What will the team look like then? We'll take a look at that in FIFA 22:

We set the system to a 4-2-2-2, which Rangnick liked to play in Leipzig. At Schalke, he preferred the 4-4-2, so we're assuming he will play with two strikers and a back four. Ronaldo would, of course, be set to play up front, and Marcus Rashford might also move into the center to complete the double forward line.

What Rangnick excels at is variability, playing different formations and optimally adjusting the team to the opponent. The first thing he'll have to do, however, is to tackle the defense. It's anything but stable at the moment.

So is this formation also a good option for the kickoff and online seasons? Definitely! As we already explained, the 4-2-2-2 is one of the best formations in FIFA 22.


The only thing that's left to say is, that Manchester United has a great squad in FIFA 22. The squad is outstanding, with CR7 you have one of the best players in the game, Rashford and Varane are also OP. No matter what mode, United players are hot AF.



So we're excited to see what Ralf Rangnick will bring to the Theater of Dreams and whether he can live up to this huge challenge. England is a good address for him; the Premier League is known for giving coaches a lot of responsibility and possibilities, but also a lot of pressure. The 63-year-old coach has a lot up his sleeve though...
