Ralf Rangnick is in the building ahead of his first game in charge this weekend.

It has certainly been an intriguing last day or so. Ralf Rangnick was always the name that Manchester United wanted – and it’s great that they managed to land their man.

However, It feels bittersweet as Michael Carrick has now left. Credit where it’s due, the Englishman has done a stellar job as both a coach and interim manager. We have to give him the praise he deserves.

Now, though, the Rangnick era begins and Carrick has decided to step away out of both respect for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and his family. I do hope he becomes a manager at some point in the future.

Our focus turns to Rangnick, who’ll take charge of his first game this weekend. Ahead of that match, the first official photos of the German at Old Trafford have been revealed by the club. He definitely looks right at home!

Honestly, I’m so excited for this guy to get started.

It finally feels like United have a manager in place who has a proper structure and way of playing. Don’t get me wrong, I have the utmost respect for Solskjaer and the work he did – but it all felt a bit disjointed at times.

Rangnick has bags of experience at a high level of football and he’ll bring that knowledge with him to Old Trafford. The question is, just how quickly can he turn this side into one that isn’t outworked by every opponent they go up against?

Six months isn’t a long time in footballing terms – which is why he’s staying on in a consultancy role afterwards. I’m seriously buzzing to watch this man work.

Welcome, Ralf!
