RALF RANGNICK is set to be named Manchester United manager in the next 24 hours, according to reports.
The Athletic’s David Ornstein writes that ‘his appointment is expected to be confirmed in the next 24 hours but it is not yet clear whether his first game in charge will be Thursday’s visit of Arsenal or Crystal Palace’s trip to Old Trafford on December 5.
There is still some uncertainty over when Rangnick’s visa process will be completed following his face-to-face meetings in London’s Mayfair with the United hierarchy last week.’
It seems Paul Pogba is enthusiastic about the idea of working under Rangnick, according to The Athletic, with the France international hearing positive things about him from his contacts in the game.
Rangnick has previously impressed with his roles at RB Leipzig and other clubs, and it will be intriguing to see what he can do at a big club like United.
The Red Devils could really do with this appointment working out for them after so many poor managerial appointments since the legendary Sir Alex Ferguson retired in 2013.
Rangnick is widely tipped to take charge of the club until the end of the season, when a permanent manager will be appointed.
