Forsberg lifts the lid on working with Rangnick: “He wants to get the best from every player”

By Oliver Fisher -

RB Leipzig midfielder Emil Forsberg has lifted the lid on what it is like to work with Ralf Rangnick, who is rumoured to be AC Milan’s next manager.

There continues to be an abundance of speculation in the media suggesting that Rangnick is set to take on a role as head coach and the man in charge of recruitment at Milan, leading a youth-oriented revolution in line with the vision of owners Elliott Management Corporation.

It almost appears to be a formality at this stage meaning placing a wager on it using Betfred promo codes could be wise, but Sky Italia journalist Luca Marchetti did recently claim that Milan will give current head coach Stefano Pioli the opportunity to work in peace and try to achieve Europa League qualification.

Marchetti added that he will be surprised if Rangnick is not at Milan next season, but the signatures have not yet arrived.

Given that the current Red Bull Head of Football is an unpredictable character, there is still a small chance he will not arrive, but at the moment it seems as though the German will be entrusted with the new project.

Speaking to the club’s official channels, the Swedish midfielder Forsberg spoke about what Rangnick brings.

“With Rangnick he gives a little more structure and discipline. This is good for the team and helps us to develop,” he said (via MilanNews).

“He wants to get the best from every player and he can motivate every player very well. It is easy to talk to him about all because he always tries to help anyone on the team.

“I think this is a very positive thing especially when you have very young players who don’t have much experience in life yet. We understand each other because we want to win both, we do everything to win.

“We are willing to give everything to be successful. I think this is what characterises us. For me he is a top person as well as a top coach. He took me to Leipzig and trusted me.”

Meanwhile, SportMediaset are reporting that Rangnick has picked out Theo Hernandez, Alessio Romagnoli, Ismael Bennacer, Franck Kessie, Hakan Calhanoglu, Ante Rebic and Gianluigi Donnarumma as the pillars he wishes to build his squad around.

The same outlet are reporting that Rangnick also has two defenders, two midfielders and a striker on his wish list to help build around the aforementioned seven players.
