Marcus Rashford in trouble? The bizarre reason incoming Manchester United boss Ralph Rangnick avoids players with tattoos

Rangnick set to take over  at Old Trafford

Ralph Rangnick is set to take the hotseat in Manchester after the Red Devils parted ways with former player Ole Gunnar Solskjaer last Sunday.

While he will not be in charge against Chelsea, it is hoped that he will be in the dugout when high-flying Arsenal visit on Thursday evening, although how long it takes him to imbue his ideas on the Red Devils side remains to be seen.

Odd reasoning behind tattoos being frowned upon

Now, as reported in the Daily Mail, the likes of Marcus Rashford could be finding themselves in hot water with the new boss.

The reason? Nothing to do with his form or attitude, but because he has tattoos.

Asked about his policy not to sign players with Tattoos previously, Rangnick explained:

‘If I say it’s a coincidence, this is not quite the truth. For the style of football we play, we need team players.”

So, what do Tattoos have to do with anything? Rangnick claimed:

‘We don’t need players who, after they score, the only thing they are interested in is pointing to their name and celebrating with themselves in front of the supporters.

They should at least celebrate with the guy who gave the assist. Of course this has not necessarily to do with tattoos. But then we need to discuss why do people have tattoos all over their body? It’s got to do with being exceptional and trying to attract attention. 

‘I’m not asking a player before we meet, show me your body whether you have any tattoos. Maybe some of them have tattoos. At least they don’t have them where you can see it everywhere.”

Manchester United are, of course, a squad packed with more than a bit of self indulgence, with dances from the likes of Paul Pogba and Jesse Lingard both commonplace in celebrations.

With this added to the tactical conundrum of trying to coax a relentless press out of Cristiano Ronaldo, will Rangnick be a good fit, or will it go up in flames?
