Ralf Rangnick reportedly reaches agreement with Manchester United to take over as interim manager


Manchester United has reportedly reached an agreement with Ralf Rangnick to become the club’s new interim manager.

The Red Devils sacked Ole Gunnar Solskjaer on Sunday, November 21 following their 4-1 loss to Watford, with the club languishing in the eighth position in the league table.

In the last week, United has conducted a search for a new interim boss to take the reigns until the end of the season, with Rangnick among a shortlist of candidates including Lucien Favre and Ernesto Valverde.

On Thursday, November 25, The Athletic reports that an agreement has been reached with Rangnick, which will see him leave his position as head of sports and development at Lokomotiv Moscow to take up the role.


The Russian club still has to agree to release Rangnick from his contract, although United is understood to not view this as an obstacle to the 63-year-old taking the helm.

Regarded as the ‘Godfather of German football’, Rangnick’s modern coaching has revolutionized the game in his homeland.

The report also adds that the former RB Leipzig manager will take up a two-year consultancy role with Manchester United once his six-month contract comes to an end.
