Ralf Rangnick is willing to take up the Man United interim job on one condition.
Manchester United’s search for a new manager continues, with it looking likelier and likelier someone will come in on an interim basis.
The Mauricio Pocettino dream will remain on hold until the summer, with the likes of Rudi Garcia, Lucien Favre and Michael Carrick amongst those in contention for the job until the season’s end.
Another name linked with the United job is Ralf Rangnick. He’s currently, the Head of Sports and Development at Lokomotiv Moscow.
According to The Times, the 63-year-old manager is willing to leave his current role for the United interim job – but only on one condition.
That condition? He wants to be given a ‘significant role’ at Old Trafford beyond this season. I’ll assume in some sort of directorial capacity once again.
Rangnick is experienced, he’s done well at several clubs. I’d have full faith in him coming to Old Trafford and steadying the ship.
The one thing I like about Rangnick is that he doesn’t stand for any nonsense – be it in the dressing room or when dealing with the powers-that-be. Whether or not the Glazer family are willing to hire someone like that remains a different question entirely.
For me, I feel like perhaps that change in attitude is exactly what United need. They’re crying out for a mentality shift from the top right down to the dressing room. Hitting the reset button in that regard is going to be key for future success and Rangnick may well be the man to get that ball rolling.
With time running out before Chelse away, United better act quickly if they want a new man in place.
