Manchester United's interim boss Ralf Rangnick has publicly backed the recent comments made by Cristiano Ronaldo about the squad.

Manchester United's interim manager Ralf Rangnick has publicly backed Cristiano Ronaldo's recent comments.

The 36-year-old winger came out this week and spoke about the mentality of the squad, claiming he will not accept anything outside of a top-three finish in the Premier League.

Right now, the Red Devils are seventh place in the table, finding themselves 11 points adrift of Liverpool, who currently occupy third.

"I think this has to happen in every single training session and in every single game and, of course, it is also about what happens after situations during the game. If things do not go the right way you have to behave in a certain manner," Rangnick said to the press.

"It is also about being role models. Not only the older ones like Cristiano but also the younger ones, and how you deal with those situations. In the end, it is a team sport, where we have to play together."

The Red Devils will be in action on Saturday in the Premier League as they face Aston Villa for the second game in a row following their FA Cup victory.
