Manchester United boss Rangnick apologises to Everton after Russia-related comments
Manchester United boss Ralf Rangnick has apologised to Everton after his recent comments related to Russia.
The German was asked about Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich’s sanctions and he mentioned both Arsenal and the Toffees were also impacted.
However, he failed to mention that Everton had already suspended their links with existing investors.
Once he was informed about it, United decided to take down the quotes and Rangnick then apologised to the club, according to Senior Communications Manager at the Toffees David Prentice.
Via his personal Twitter account, Prenno wrote, “Man Utd were swiftly made aware Aaron and have agreed to take down the content. Rangnick admitted his error and apologised. Matter now closed.”

Prentice did his job well and immediately brought it to Manchester United’s attention.
Chelsea are in plenty of trouble and that is the talking point for managers all over the league.
Everton, due to their links with Alisher Usmanov, were also driven into the question, but they have cut all ties with him and other Russian companies.
Rangnick may not have known about this which is why he went on to say what he did but it’s good that he was checked up for his comments.
Hopefully, no other manager or player now brings the Toffees into the discussion about this again.
