Rangnick got the questions from Ronaldo after he was substituted.
Speaking after the match, Rangnick said: ‘He was asked, “why do you take me off?” Cristiano was unhappy.‘I said “I must take decisions in the best interests of the team.”
‘We had exactly the same thing at Villa park, 2-0 up with 15 minutes left and the match ended in a draw and we wanted to avoid the same mistake.
‘I brought on Maguire to switch to a back five, and Rashford as another fast winger to add pace for counter attacks.
‘I told him that: “I know you’re very ambitious and you want to score but hopefully in some years from now when you’re a coach you will take the same decision and be in the same role.”
Manchester United got lucky thanks to David de Gea for keeping them in the match in the first half.
