Manchester United already have their new coach. The club has officially communicated that Ralf Rangnick will be the new manager of the Red Devils until next summer, on a contract of only six months, waiting for a long-term coach to arrive. Rangnick has left his position at Lokomotiv Moscow to join the Old Trafford project, where he will stay two more years later after leaving the bench to take a position as an advisor.. In this way, Manchester United already has a member to lead their own with the aim of convincing Mauricio Pochettino in six months, since the Argentine is the main candidate to lead the Manchester club in the future.
Rangnick has spoken like this about his new team: “The squad is full of talent and has a great balance between youth and experience. All my efforts over the next six months will be aimed at helping footballers reach their potential, both individually and collectively. From there, I will continue to help the team long-term as a consultant. “
For its part, John MurtoughManchester United’s Director of Soccer has spoken about the new interim manager: “Ralf is one of the most respected and innovative coaches in European football. He was our number one candidate because he has leadership skills and almost four decades of coaching experience.” .
Rangnick, without his point man
Once the arrival of the German at Old Trafford was known, “Lokomotiv Moscow (his home club) have announced that Lars Kornetka will not join Ralf Rangnick’s coaching staff at Manchester United”, as reported by the British media Manchester Evening News. The one of Kornetka will be a sensible loss in the technical body of the Red Devils since, as Rangnick himself described, it is “the best video analyst we have in Germany”. Likewise, from this medium they point out that while the current Manchester United coaching staff will remain with the German, “Rangnick could be joined by some members of his own staff, but there will be no departures imminent”.
