After sacking Ole Gunnar Solskjaer on Sunday (football transfers), Manchester United will hire Ralf Rangnick as their interim manager soon.
Manchester United are likely going to announce German coach Ralf Rangnick as interim manager until the end of the season.
After losing 4-1 at Watford, United relieved Solskjaer of his duties and Michael Carrick became the caretaker manager (football news).
The club also revealed that they intended to appoint a temporary manager. This manager will coach the team before United named a permanent manager at the end of the season.
Manchester United Will Hire Ralf Rangnick as Their Interim Manager
And now, they have – Manchester United may appoint Ralf Rangnick as their interim head coach for the 2021-22 season.
Rangnick has managed Schalke, Hoffenheim, and RB Leipzig in the Bundesliga.
Now, he will leave his position as head of sports and development at Lokomotiv Moscow to take on the post.
The 63-year-old will sign a six-month deal at Old Trafford. Rangnick then becomes a consultant for the club for another two years, according to The Athletic.
In fact, Man Utd and Rangnick have already reached an agreement.
However, the agreement will be contingent on Lokomotiv releasing him from his contract in the Russian capital. But United do not consider this to be a problem.
Rangnick will not be on the bench when Manchester United takes on Premier League leaders Chelsea on Sunday. So, the imminent manager will not be at Stamford Bridge on the weekend because he is awaiting a work visa.
This week, reports extensively connected United with a mid-season move for Mauricio Pochettino, the manager of Paris Saint-Germain. And the Argentine has done little to separate himself from the rumours.
However, it appears that United’s administration has chosen to hold off on making a move for the former Spurs manager.
