Man Utd appoints Rangnick as interim manager

Manchester United have appointed Ralf Rangnick as their interim manager until the end of the season.

Club legend Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and United parted ways after the 4-1 humiliation at Watford, where the Red Devils announced they were looking for a temporary boss until the end of the campaign, where they will seek a permanent solution.

Rangnick, 63, is leaving his role as sports and development manager at Lokomotiv Moscow to take up the vacant position at Old Trafford, which Michael Carrick had temporarily filled.

Former midfielder Carrick took temporary responsibility for the 2-0 Champions League victory at Villarreal and a 1-1 draw against Premier League leaders Chelsea on Sunday.

Rangnick, whose appointment is subject to a work visa requirement, will take on a two-year consulting role at United when 2021-2022 is completed.

Known for his high-pressure philosophy and influence on some of the clearest heads of the Bundesliga, Rangnick started his career with his hometown club Viktoria Backnang.

After periods with people like Stuttgart, Hoffenheim, Hannover and Schalke, Rangnick enjoyed a brief managerial stay at RB Leipzig, who rose from the fourth tier of German football to the Bundesliga with the new United man as football director.

Across 293 matches in the German top class, Rangnick has 120 wins to his name with a winning percentage of 41, although he is still somewhat unknown outside his home country.

In fact, Rangnick has only met United twice in his managerial career when he was in charge of Schalke, who were knocked out over two legs in the Champions League semi-final in 2011, when Alex Ferguson’s team reached their third final in four years.

The Red Devils are in eighth place in the Premier League, five points off the top four and 12 behind Chelsea.
