BREAKING: Ralf Rangnick to become interim Man United manager

1 min read

According to The Athletic, the agreement is subject to Ralf Rangnick’s current club, Lokomotiv, agreeing to release him from his contract, but this is not expected to be a deal breaker.

Rangnick has apparently agreed to a six-month deal until the end of May. He will have a further two years in a consultancy role.

This comes after Ole Gunnar Solskjaer was dismissed as United manager on Sunday morning after their 4-1 defeat to Watford.

The 63-year-old Rangnick is known as the architect of RB Leipzig’s stunning rise from the fifth tier of German football, while he also took little-known German side Ulm to the Bundesliga for the first time in their history at the start of this century.
