Ralf Rangnick has praised Manchester United’s performance in Sunday’s 1-0 victory against Crystal Palace and singled out Cristiano Ronaldo for his work off the ball.
The German coach took charge of the Red Devils for the first time and recorded a maiden win thanks to Fred’s brilliant second-half strike, with the first half-hour of the match particularly encouraging as United pressed high and got on the front foot.

There had been some concerns that the 36-year-old Ronaldo would not be a good fit for Rangnick’s gegenpressing style, but the forward worked extremely hard to track back and close down.
His work off the ball did not go unnoticed by his new manager, with Rangnick giving the veteran special praise, while he was delighted with the entire team’s display particularly after just one training session.

‘I am very happy with the way the team performed, especially the first half hour, with the pressing, it was exceptional. The only thing missing was the 1-0 or 2-0,’ Rangnick said
‘The way we defended, we had control of the whole game, the clean sheet was the most important part.
‘These are the things we must improve. We need to keep clean sheets. With just the one training session, I was really impressed. We did much better than expected.

‘We always tried to be on the front foot. We were never not apart from maybe the last five minutes. At all other times we were trying to keep them away from our goal.
‘We wanted to play with two strikers, especially in the central position. By the way, Cristiano Ronaldo’s work off the ball, chapeau!’
On Fred’s goal, and what United need to work on going forward, Rangnick added: ‘I had to ask my assistant coach if that was Fred’s right foot. I thought he could only shoot with his left! I’m happy for him.
‘It’s always easier to build on things after you’re successful. We must produce further clean sheets and get better at creating chances for our attack. Overall I was very pleased with the way we played today.’

Kanye West To Partner With Founder Of Skid Row Fashion Week & Wants The Homeless Residents To Model Clothes
Kanye West may be a busy man these days, but not too busy that he can’t be a voice for the homeless.
According to TMZ, Kanye West is preparing to team up with the Skid Row Fashion Week producer. “Kanye is working with streetwear brand Skid Row Fashion Week on a new collab and fashion show with the ultimate goal of helping the homeless.”
The founder of the fashion line, David Sabastian, met with “Kanye earlier this month while Ye was recording ‘Donda 2’ at his studio in L.A.’s Arts District — near Skid Row — and they decided to create a Yeezy X Skid Row Fashion Week clothing collab.”
According to David, his company donates a portion of all sales in hopes of helping individuals living on Skid Row.
He also says some of the residents are employed by the factory that makes the clothes.
Kanye will use “100% of the proceeds to help the homeless on Skid Row.”
Dropping Feb. 22nd, money from sales will be used to hire more people to work at the factory for Skid Row Fashion Week.
In addition, items found on Skid Row will be used in the fashion show. For example, one of the fashion ideas for the event is “a trash bag puffer jacket.”

Shaquille O’Neal Says He Doesn’t Feel Sorry For Kanye West: “That’s What Happens When You Put All Your Business On Social Media”
Earlier this week, Shaquille O’Neal was asked about co-parenting and his thoughts on Kim and Kanye’s very public divorce.
While speaking on ‘The Big Podcast With Shaq,’ he made it clear that he would never put his business on social media, nor would he “embarrass” his exes.
Shaq stated, “It’s not about having issues. It’s just, I run my life on the PPL principles. You protect, you provide, and you love.”
He continued, “Even if we’re fighting I’m not going to embarrass her amongst the world. Even if we’re in an argument, no. Hell no.” Shaq went on to explain, “If they felt a certain way and they wanted to do that, I understand they could do that but I wouldn’t do that.”
When his co-hosts mentioned the “narrative” used to describe Kanye, he added, “That’s what happens when you put all your business on social media. So I don’t want to hear it now. Don’t try and clean it up now because you started it.”
“When you give your information to a million people, you gon’ have a million different meta babies come out on what they thought,” he expressed. “So I don’t want to hear ‘It’s a narrative.’ That’s the narrative that you’re putting out.
Commenters responded and said, “True. A lot of celebrities should be like that.” Another person stated, “Nahhh, most of the time he’s defending the initial narrative that was put out by media saying he’s crazy.”

Alexis Skyy Says Woman Who Alleges She Was Scammed Has Refused Refund Three Times
A woman named Jumeika Davis alleges Alexis Skyy scammed her out of $1,150 for a stay at Alexis’ former recovery house used to assist women recovering from plastic surgery.
Davis took the issue to social media, first
making a TikTok explaining that she paid for a premium suite that would allow her to bring someone with her. But she alleges she was told she couldn’t, and the info on the now-deleted site was wrong.
Initially claiming her policy stated “no refund,” Alexis Skyy decided to give Davis her money back through CashApp. While Davis claimed she wanted a refund, she declined the money and returned it to Alexis.
Alexis stated, “Here is my official statement about a business venture I’m no longer attached to. This business had a strict no refund policy, but ultimately, my team and I decided to distribute a FULL REFUND.” She continued, “Our full refund was denied, however, my team and I attempted to make right of this situation.
Davis took to Instagram Live and stated she declined the money because she wanted “justice.” She also alleged Skyy “is a habitual liar” and “scammer.”
Davis went on to say that she plans to go to court, insinuating she would file a lawsuit against Alexis.
