Manchester United have reached an agreement with Ralf
Rangnick to take over as new interim manager.
Rangnick will be taking over from Ole Gunnar Solskjaer who
was relieved of his position following a humbling 4-1 defeat by
Watford, with the club being in an unfamiliar eighth position in
the league table.
The German had been part of a short-list of experienced
managers with Rudi Garcia, Lucien Favre, marked to take
over at Carrington Road.
An agreement has been said to be reached with Rangnick,
which will see him take up the interim role and remain at the
club for two years beyond the end of the season on a
consultancy basis.
Despite this deal, Michael Carrick is still expected to be in
the charge for Sunday’s Premier League clash against Chelsea.
He has been placed on a temporary charge of United after the
axing of the Norwegian legend.
