“It’s going to be really interesting because Ralf Rangnick likes to control the whole football club,” said Mills to Football Insider.

“We saw what he built at RB Leipzig from the ground up. Control of coaching and recruitment was down to him. It’s his way or the highway. It’s going to be interesting to see how he deals with the dynamics with influential, big ego players. He loves to play the high-press. He loves to get the ball back as quickly as possible. How do you fit Cristiano Ronaldo into that system?

“Somebody is going to have to compromise. That hasn’t really been Rangnick’s way up to that point.

“We know Ronaldo is an unbelievable goalscorer, but if you’re looking at what is best for the team, then it’s going to be an interesting dynamic.”
