The former RB Leipzig boss will be in charge of the Old Trafford outfit until the end of the season. However, his contract could be extended depending on his performance within the period.

“Manchester United is delighted to announce the appointment of Ralf Rangnick as interim manager until the end of the season, subject to work visa requirement,” a club statement read.

“Following this period, Ralf and the club have agreed that he will continue in a consultancy role for a further two years,” it added.

John Murtough, Manchester United football director, head praise on Ragnick and believes he will do a decent job at the club.

“Ralf is one of the most respected coaches and innovators in European football. 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.

“Everyone at the club is looking forward to working with him during the season ahead, and then for a further two years in his advisory role.”

Michael Carrick will remain in charge of the first team until Ralf’s work visa is finalised.

The club wishes to place on record its thanks to Lokomotiv Moscow for their co-operation in the process of bringing Ralf to Manchester United.
