Manchester United announced Ralf Rangnick as interim manager. The German is stepping down as sporting director for Lokomotiv Moscow to replace Michael Carrick, who had taken over from Ole Gunnar Solksjaer. “It is subject to the requirements for a work visa,” reported the club, which clarified that at the end of the 2021-2022 season, the DT will continue to be linked to the club as a consultant for the next two years.
“The squad is full of talent and has a great balance between youth and experience. All my efforts in the next six months will go to help these players unfold their potential, individually and, more importantly, as a team, “said Rangnick in the statement published by the Red Devils, who drew 1-1 with Chelsea and were left 12 points behind the Blues, leaders of the English Premier League.
“I am excited to join Manchester United, and I am focused on making this a successful season for the club.”

“Rangnick is not one of the most respected and innovative coaches in European football and hence he is the number one candidate as interim manager. Everyone at the club is looking forward to working with him this season, and later in his role as an advisor, ”commented John Murtough, the English club’s sporting director. For his part, Carrick will continue to lead the group until the new strategist completes the visa.
