When Manchester United caretaker manager Ralf Rangnick commences his two-year consultant post at Old Trafford next season, he may only work six days a month.
From the sideline until the end of the season, the former RB Leipzig manager is watching the Red Devils’ growth. He will leave the club at the end of the current season to make room for the incoming permanent coach.
United has yet to disclose who will coach the Reds next season, although Mauricio Pochettino of PSG and Erik Ten Hag of Ajax continue to be the clear favorites. Meanwhile, new information relating to Rangnick’s two-year consulting post, which he will begin at the end of the season, has lately popped up.
Rangnick will purportedly take a backseat at Old Trafford in a job that will presumably only see him work 144 days over the duration of two years, as per the report by Sportsmail. Additionally, the degree and reliability of Rangnick’s performances next season are said to have been dependent on the manager in charge.
United seemed to be divided over Pochettino and Ten Hag, whilst Julen Lopetegui of Sevilla and Luis Enrique of Spain have also been deemed outsiders for the job of a permanent coach.
However, although the search for United’s next manager is far from done, Rangnick’s job is also appearing to be a mystery.
Rangnick’s status amongst some of the United leaders still seems to be up in the air. The German, on the other hand, has explicitly made a point of saying where he feels United’s primary priority should be.
While their search for a new manager is far from done, Rangnick made it evident that they need to be more disciplined and productive in their efforts to the signing of new players into the manchester united team.
He has seen how Liverpool and Manchester City, United’s closest adversaries, had developed their respective teams over the previous five seasons.
Rangnick also suggested that United, who are presently in seventh place in the Premier League, should steal a page from their main rival’s playbooks if they are to make substantial ground.
According to Rangnick’s remark, while stating what Manchester United can do so as for them to have the potential of matching up and compete with their title rivals, he communicated that
“Manchester City and Liverpool have been built together and recruited over five or six years. All of them under the premise of how the coaches want to play told the board this is what has to happen. Whenever the new head coach is clear, it has to be: how does he want to play and what kind of players do we need for that?”
He continued by saying “This team does not lack technical players, it can do with more physicality. It takes the right decisions and knowing where you want to go: what kind of players, what kind of manager, and then, in every transfer window, try to get the best possible. This is not rocket science. It has to be done and, if that happens, maybe in two or three transfer windows the situation could be different.”
