Manchester United, on Monday, confirmed the appointment of Ralf Rangnick as the club’s interim manager until the end of the 2021/2022 season.
Rangnick takes over from Michael Carrick who led the club in two games against Villareal and Chelsea following the sacking of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.
John Murtough, Manchester United football director, said, “Ralf is one of the most respected coaches and innovators in European football. He was our number one candidate for interim manager, reflecting the invaluable leadership and technical skills he will bring from almost four decades of experience in management and coaching.
“Everyone at the club is looking forward to working with him during the season ahead, and then for a further two years in his advisory role.”

@ManUtd Worming welcome for our new boss Ralf Rangnick
His first game is to change captain of the team if not we are still in the same place. Give Bruno, De Gea , Pogba or CR7 that badge with all due respect sir. We are fucking tired of Maguire wearing the Capt badge sir
