Manchester United will soon introduce the successor to the recently dismissed Ole Gunnar Solskjaer: Ralf Rangnick is to take over the coaching position at the Red Devils, at least on an interim basis.
According to information from SPOX and GOAL, an agreement has not yet been reached, but the talks are well advanced. These have been positive so far and the 63-year-old will hold the post until the end of the season.
A direct takeover of the office on the weekend of Solskjaer’s expulsion would be SPOX and GOALwas possible, but only the long-term idea of the club management convinced the German coach.
Because: After six months as head coach, Rangnick could subsequently remain active in an advisory role for the traditional club.
According to The Athletic, which reported on it first, the final decision depends only on the approval of Lok Moscow, which is firmly expected in Manchester. Rangnick has been Head of Sport and Development at the traditional Russian club since July.
For the team around superstar Cristiano Ronaldo, the 63-year-old will work as head coach until the end of the season and then remain in an advisory role for two more years. Rangnick and ManUnited before an agreement: This is the Red Devils’ coaching plan
In the Champions League, Michael Carrick celebrated a successful debut in a 2-0 win at FC Villarreal after the Solskjaer-Aus. But he shouldn’t be in charge for too long. Because: A friend from the Bundesliga is about to take over.
According to The Athletic, a long-time Bundesliga coach is to take over the Red Devils: RALF RANGNICK. The 63-year-old should therefore look after the club until the end of the season and then remain with the club in an advisory capacity.
According to information from SPOX and GOAL, an agreement has not yet been reached, but the talks are well advanced. According to The Athletic, Rangnick’s contract with Lok Moscow is an obstacle to a move to United.
Rangnick is to act as a placeholder at United for six months until the summer of 2022 and then act there as a consultant for two years. At Rangnick, the big dream solution is to follow on the coaching chair at United.
Before Rangnick, ERNESTO VALVERDE was the interim favorite for the vacant coaching position at ManUnited. According to information from SPOX and Goal, the United management had already discussed a possible collaboration in a meeting with Valverde.
The 57-year-old Spaniard coached FC Barcelona until 2020. He has been without a club since leaving the Catalans. After the Rangnick revelations, it is unlikely that he will now act as a placeholder for a desired solution at United.
A dream solution for the summer according to Ranngnick would be MAURICIO POCHETTINO. The current Paris Saint-Germain coach remains a favorite. The 49-year-old himself was not averse if ManUnited made him an offer.
According to information from SPOX and GOAL, Pochettino has a good relationship with Sir Alex Ferguson – in contrast to his current sports director. The relationship between him and Leonardo is considered tense.
Because of this, too, a return to the island might be possible. The Argentine is officially in the service of PSG until 2023. A possible farewell would keep the coaching carousel going.
According to the Parisian daily Le Parisien, ex-Real coach ZINEDINE ZIDANE would be available at PSG should “Poch” go. According to the report, Zidane has been approached at least once by the capital city club in recent months.
According to the Sunday Times, ManUnited is also said to have dealt with Zidane before Solskjaer’s dismissal. According to French media reports, the ex-Real coach is currently not ready to take on a team due to a sabbatical.
In addition to Zizou, two other coaches are considered a potential solution, according to the Telegraph: ERIK TEN HAG and BRENDAN RODGERS. The Dutchman has been traded with several top clubs as he does an excellent job at Ajax Amsterdam.
Ten Hag will be there until 2023 and most recently swore his loyalty to the club. It is similar with Rodgers. Northern Ireland is tied to Leicester City even until 2025.
Shortly after Solskjaers Aus, the Spanish national coach LUIS ENRIQUE was traded. The Spaniard quickly made it clear that he was not available.
“Is it April 1st today?”, Enrique answered when asked if he could imagine a commitment to the Red Devils – and added: “I’m already with the biggest team in Spain with 5,000 players.”
LUCIEN FAVRE was also mentioned: he left Dortmund around eleven months ago without a club. Before Eddie Howe was introduced as Newcastle coach, Favre had also been traded at the nouveau riche PL club.
