Meanwhile, United have agreed that the ‘professor’ will continue in a consultancy capacity for further two years after the expiration of his deal as a manager.
Manchester United football director, John Murtough told Manchester United official website “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.”
Ralf Rangnick on the other hand told MUFC official his excitement on his appointment “I am excited to be joining Manchester United and focused on making this a successful season for the club.
“The squad is full of talent and has a great balance of youth and experience. All my efforts for the next six months will be on helping these players fulfil their potential, both individually and, most importantly, as a team.
“Beyond that, I look forward to supporting the club’s longer-term goals on a consultancy basis.”
Michael Carrick is expected to be in charge of the team until Rangnick’s work visa is completed.
