Ralf Rangnick’s appointment to become Man United manager has been further delayed.

Manchester United have decided on their interim manager, with a verbal agreement now in place to appoint Ralf Rangnick on a six-month contract.

The German will remain at the club in a consultancy role starting next summer, which definitely feels like a smart move.

However, the Reds fans may have to wait a little longer to see the 63-year-old in the dugout. According to The Mirror, there has been a further delay in Rangnick’s appointment.

Rangnick will obviously not be in the dugout tomorrow when the Reds take on Chelsea, while there’s now slim hopes of him being ready to manage the team against Arsenal in midweek.

Apparently, the club are still sorting out the terms with Rangnick’s representatives, while the ‘finer details’ about his role post-management are still being discussed. To add to that, the coach still needs a work permit to allow him to make the move to England. That means Michael Carrick is ‘almost certain’ to remain in charge against The Gunners.

To add to that, the date for his possible first match in charge is December 5th, which is a home match against Crystal Palace in eight days time.

No doubt the Old Trafford Faithful will be buzzing for that one, with the German’s high-pressing style set to be unleashed for the first time. I honestly can’t wait to see how this current squad tries to deal with those tactics. I think it’s safe to assume it’ll take them all a little while to get up to speed.

At the end of the day, this appointment will happen. There’s no real rush as it’s only an interim move anyway, with United seeming pretty relaxed about the situation.
