What Man Utd can expect from Ralf Rangnick

Manchester United will be in safe hands for the remainder of the season after Ralf Rangnick signs a short-term contract as interim manager for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.

United still have Mauricio Pochettino and Brendan Rodgers in their sights for the summer but have always been open to the appointment of an interim to give themselves more time and flexibility later to pursue one of their preferred permanent options.

Rangnick will pilot the ship for the remainder of the season and is also said to have agreed to a two-year advisory role that will give him a voice at Old Trafford until 2024.

This is a coach whose reputation has been built on player development and tactical proficiency.

Rangnick wasn’t a significant player. Coming from Baden-Württemberg in southwest Germany, he joined the youth of the regional powerhouse Stuttgart, but never got beyond the reserve team. After a short stay in England, which he combined with a year of study at the University of Sussex, he returned to Germany, but remained largely in BW.
