Manchester United announced on Monday they had appointed Ralf Rangnick as interim manager
until the end of the season following the sacking of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, reports AFP. The 63-
year-old German joins from Lokomotiv Moscow, where he was manager of sports and development. At the end of the season Rangnick will take on a consultancy role at Old Trafford for a further two years. He takes over from first-team coach Michael Carrick, who has been in caretaker charge for two matches since Solskjaer was sacked just over a week ago following a poor run of results. “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,” said United football director John Murtough.
