Rangnick insists Man Utd body language not a problem despite Gary Neville rant

Ralf Rangnick has claimed there is no issue with the body language of his Manchester United players after Sky Sports pundit Gary Neville blasted his former side for being a "bunch of whinge bags".

Ex-defender Neville slated the performance of several Man Utd stars on Monday Night Football with the Red Devils 1-0 down at half-time against relegation-threatened Newcastle.

Despite coming from behind to salvage a draw, there was clear frustration in the Man Utd camp who failed to win in the Premier League for the first time under their new boss.

The Red Devils were second-best throughout the contest and had to rely on veteran striker Edinson Cavani coming off the bench to salvage a point at St. James' Park.

Speaking during Sky Sports' half-time analysis, the former United captain said: "They’re a bunch of whinge bags.

"Their arms are up in the air, they’re complaining about everything.

"They got the last manager the sack. Ralf Rangnick is not going to get the sack, but they’ll get a lot of managers the sack if they perform like that."

Neville also slammed five-time Ballon d'Or winner Cristiano Ronaldo for his post-match antics, with the Portuguese legend heading straight down the tunnel after the game instead of applauding the travelling supporters.

But now the Manchester United boss has jumped to the defence of his players, claiming there is no issue with the player's body language.

"I don’t think today was a problem of body language," argued United’s interim manager when speaking to the press.

"It was more a question of physicality, of meeting the demands of speed, tempo, physicality and the side effect is the body language afterwards.

"I don’t think that was the major problem today for us.

"The major problem was the way we played in those moments when it was about physicality."
