The list of players he's signed highlights his impressive knowledge of the game.

Liverpool quartet Sadio Mane, Roberto Firmino, Naby Keita and Ibrahima Konate were all signed by Rangnick.

Firmino joined him at Hoffenheim whilst the other three were signed whilst he was in his role with Red Bull.

Erling Haaland, a man whose future at Borussia Dortmund is uncertain, was also signed by the German.

Chelsea's Timo Werner and Bayern Munich's Joshua Kimmich were also spotted at tender ages by the tactician. Both players have since moved on and claimed Champions League winners' medals.

Rangnick, who first began coaching in the 1980s, has also helped nurture some of the game's elite bosses.

Tuchel, who led Chelsea to the summit of Europe last term, worked under Rangnick at Stuttgart.

Julian Nagelsmann was taught by him at Hoffenheim whilst Marco Rose, Ralph Hassenhuttl and Jesse Marsch have also benefitted from the German's teachings.

Hope we can retain him for years to come

What is going on with Manchester United? The club finally appear to have made the right decision.

The Athletic report an agreement with Ralf Rangnick is imminent for the German coach to become interim manager.

Rangnick will also stay on in a consultant role beyond the season, at the very least.

Note, of course, it is not confirmed. And United could still mess this up. But let’s assume for once, the club are going to get this right.

For so long, Manchester United have failed because the club has been focused on the commercial side ahead of football.

This has been the main criticism of United, with decisions entrusted to banker Ed Woodward.

Now with Woodward leaving, United appear to have a new focus, recognising the various mistakes of the past, which have seen appointments made due to big name reputation or nostalgia.

The worst case scenario would have been United panicking and appointing Steve Bruce.

Rushing into an appointment of Zinedine Zidane could have been disastrous for different reasons, with the Frenchman not keen on the role, with a poor grasp of English, and still relatively inexperienced as manager despite his two spells at Madrid.

Rangnick is vastly experienced, having faced United in the Champions League semi-final back in 2011 with Schalke.

As an interim appointment, Rangnick is perfect. He will guide United in the right path on and off the pitch, and his impact will be far greater than just one season, with an overhaul of recruitment likely.

Rangnick won’t accept interference or players foisted on him for commercial reasons. He will make sure this club is finally steered in the right direction.

Just imagine if this club had been as forward thinking back in 2013, where we might be now?

Beyond this season, Rangnick will help United to make the right appointment long term. His guidance will be invaluable.

As for the short term? There are no guarantees of success this season, there never are. But what Rangnick will bring to the club is organisation, entertaining football, and finally a sense of direction. It is long overdue.


His expertise is recruiting young players.

Rangnick said that he “wouldn’t swap Keita with Pogba for our style of play.”

This suggest Rangnick does not rate Pogba as a suitable player for his high pressing style of football. Having watched the Frenchman at United over the past five years, this is not surprising whatsoever.

Now it is possible, that with Pogba at his disposal, Rangnick may either adapt his tactics to fit the Frenchman in and make use of his talents, or spend time coaching the midfielder to develop him.

But considering Rangnick’s short-term immediate role, and his eye on the future, with Pogba’s contract expiring, there seems little attraction in a temporary on-pitch solution.

Rangnick’s appointment is all about laying the groundwork for future success, and with Pogba failing to commit to United, and not ostensibly a fit for the manager’s system, a parting of the ways seems increasingly likely.

A bold decision to move on from Pogba would be ruthless, but it would also solve the dilemma and create clean slate for the next permanent manager, while also potentially bringing in some funds in January.


Pogba will not be part of the team under the interim manager. He may not be in the team under the new manager if he leaves on a free transfer.
He is leaving this season liao. Dun bother with him liao la. Unless he super saiya under RR.

the end of sancho ?


4-2-2-2?

Anything's better than the recent 4-2-4 played by the previous manager. Hide-and-seek-McTominay and Fred hopelessly overrun and exposed.

Julian Nagelsmann reveals: “I texted Ralf Rangnick and told him I think it's great to see him at Man United. He will do MancUnited very well with the way he plays football”. #MUFC
@imiasanmia
“I hope Rangnick will stay there as manager longer than just next summer”.

When we got Moyes everyone was like " hmm, he's Scottish just like SAF, been at Everton for a long time, hasn't been sacked, he's done well for a team that's unable to have financial power like United, City, Liverpool, Arsenal and Chelsea. Give him financial power of United he would continue to lead United to glory."

When we got LvG everyone was like "Moyes is clueless, he ask players to put in endless crosses, he even asked players to emulate City?! We're United for God's sake! Now LvG is a man with brains. He knows how to play tactically and win games."

When we got Mourinho everyone was like "Finally we got our special one. The one we always wanted since SAF retired. He is driven, he has won titles wherever he goes and is proven to have succeeded in English football unlike his predecessors, Moyes who has won nothing and LvG who always talk about philosophy but no end results to show for it, except the FA cup."

When we got Ole everyone was like "Finally we have someone who played under SAF's system of relentless attacking and never give up attitude! Mourinho won as the Europa but he has self-destructed in his 3rd season just like in every other team he managed. Oh my I can't stand his boring park the bus tactic anymore. Bring forth the exciting era of attacking football under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer!"

Now we are getting Ralf and everyone is like "Ralf is gonna transform United, he's successful and has an eye for talent for young prospects, he is the mentor of Klopp, unlike Ole, he is tactically astute" etc.

He is the 5th Manager in 8 years. I seriously hope we don't get our hopes up high only to see it crashed again. Ralf may be interim, but I really hope we put an end to our poor footballing results over the years. He might just be manager for 5 months, but please undo all the poor footballing decisions made by the non-playing staff and cement our place as the best in England again.

Agreement in place between Manchester United and Lokomotiv Moscow for Ralf Rangnick. Deal will most likely be signed late this weekend. #MUFC Ralf Rangnick already has an agreement to join as interim manager and then with ‘consultancy’ role starting from June 2022.

Emile Smith Rowe could haunt his former boss when Arsenal face Manchester United next Thursday, with Ralf Rangnick expected to take the reins at United.

The Englishman spent six months on loan at RB Leipzig during the 2018/2019 season, having been brought to the club by Rangnick.

His first game as United manager is expected to be against Arsenal, and he'll no doubt be dreading his reunion with Smith Rowe given the youngster's sensational form early on this season.

Aaron Wan-Bissaka is United’s first-choice right-back and, despite his excellent recovery tackling ability, Smith Rowe can take advantage of the defender’s lack of positional awareness as the Gunners looks to take all three points from their trip to Old Trafford.

If any player is going to spoil Rangnick’s Manchester United debut, you'd be brave to bet against it being his former signing Smith Rowe.

Look at it this way, we are really trying to support our manager. Can’t be a manager come in and immediately, we go “oh sh.it”, right? Just that they didn’t turn out the way we hoped.
