Manchester United interim boss Ralf Rangnick has defended his decision to sub off Mason Greenwood during their 1-0 home defeat to Wolves on Monday night - insisting he 'had to take off somebody'.

he Red Devils produced a poor display at Old Trafford and succumbed to a late loss against Bruno Lage's side as Joao Moutinho struck in the 82nd minute to clinch a shock win and continue United's up and down season.

Rangnick's tactics came into question following the defeat and supporters showed their discontent with his decisions during the game as a section were heard booing his call to substitute Mason Greenwood for Bruno Fernandes, with the game then still level at 0-0.

The German coach explained that he felt the Portuguese playmaker could help elevate United's game at a point where the team were on top, and said while he was impressed with Greenwood - he was convinced that he had to make a change and was not willing to take off a central midfielder.

Fernandes went on to strike the crossbar from close range in what was a terrible miss from the attacking midfielder.

'It was 0-0 and we were having the better moments in that part of the game to so we decided to bring on Bruno,' Rangnick said after the game. '[Fernandes] had the big chance to put [us] 1-0 ahead.
