Premier League. Unofficial: Ralf Rangnick is the coach of Manchester United

The Norwegian coach lost his job after the disastrous game and the Red Devils’ defeat to Watford. The team performed very badly, which made it bitter at Old Trafford. The club’s management decided to end cooperation with Solskjaer and announced the search for a coach who would lead the team until the end of the season. The media reports that the search is over.

According to the journalist of “The Athletic” David Ornstein, Ralf Rangnick will be the new coach of the Red Devils in the near future. In recent months, the German has worked as a sports director at Lokomotiv Moscow. Now he is to take over Manchester United.

Rangnick was not a famous footballer, he played many games in the German lower leagues. He started his coaching career in the 1980s by leading the youth team and the Stuttgart reserve. Finally, in 1999, he was offered the first team, and in the following years he also led Hannover, Schalke, Hoffenheim and RB Leipzig.

According to Ornstein, the German is to sign a contract for six months with an option to extend it by two years. The signing of the contract is to depend on an agreement with Lokomotiv Moscow, the club where he currently works as a sports director. If he is successful in the negotiations, he will not lead the team against Chelsea after all.

All because of formalities. A UK work permit is required to join the Premier League. Obtaining it will probably not take long, so in the event of an agreement, the 63-year-old could take over United only in a dozen or so days. Until then, the team will most likely be led by Michael Carrick, who was on the bench of the first team in the match against Villarreal in the Champions League.

In recent years, it has been speculated that Rangnick would join AC Milan. The German has long been busy with the development of RB Leipzig as a coach and director, but eventually resigned in 2020. Rangnick has been working in Lokomotiv Moscow since 2021.

In the last dozen or so days, it has been said that the main candidates for the United takeover are Mauricio Pochettino and Zinedine Zidane, but according to “The Athletic” the Red Devils’ authorities have already made an agreement with Rangnick. After a break, an experienced German coach can return to the coach’s bench and help the club win the best possible place in the Premier League table.

Manchester United are only 8th in the English league table and are 11 points behind the leader Chelsea. The team will fight for more league points in the match against “The Blues”.
