For the Manchester Evening Newshis trainer Ralf Rangnick reacted to the situation: “firstly, I think that under my watch he has played a lot more matches than before my arrival. Secondly, on the day of the game against Chelsea, he contacted me at the hotel and asked me to release him from the game and training the next day and the day after for personal family reasons. And I allowed him to do it.”

He then went on to explain his managerial approach when he decided to bring in Edison Cavani and not Jesse Lingard on Monday evening: “With only three substitutes, unfortunately I had to make a decision between bringing in Edinson Cavani or Jesse Lingard, or even young Alejandro Garnacho. But I decided to bring Edinson in for the reasons I just explained to you. If I hadn’t brought Cavani in, maybe someone else would have said it was a lack of class not to bring him in. With only three substitutes and two already made, a decision has to be made and it will not be to everyone’s taste, that is also part of the game.
