FInally Ralf Rangnick Granted Work Permit
The next Manchester United manager Ralf Rangnick has been granted his work permit today. The 63-year-old’s move to Old Trafford has been held up by his application for a work permit, which has progressed slowly due to his lack of managerial experience in the last five years. United had hoped to have Rangnick in the dugout for tonight’s clash against Arsenal but Michael Carrick will remain in charge for the third and final time after the German’s application was held up. However, Rangnick has now been granted a work permit and he will be able to take charge for Sunday’s game against Palace.
The former RB Leipzig boss flew into the UK on Monday and has tested negative for Covid-19, meaning he does not need to isolate. Carrick is expected to name his own starting XI against Mikel Arteta’s side and will not take any direction from Rangnick. Current caretaker manager Michael Carrick will lead Man Utd against the Gunners this evening after guiding them to a victory over Villarreal and a draw at Chelsea in his two matches in charge.
Rangnick’s Contract Details
The German has been appointed as the interim manager of Manchester United till the end of the current season after Ole Gunnar Solskjaer was sacked following a 4-1 defeat against Watford. He will take charge of his first game as United manager on Sunday against Crystal Palace. Although he will be present at Old Trafford for United’s match against Arsenal on Thursday. After the end of the season, he will carry on in a Consultant role at the club for 2 years.
Ragnick’s Future and Next Manager
Rangnick has only agreed on a deal to be the interim coach of Manchester United till the end of the current season. According to Manchester United’s plans, they will appoint a permanent manager in the summer after the end of the campaign. Rangnick will move on to a consulting role at the club after his stint as manager, but It is quite unclear as to what will happen if the german exceeds all expectations and does extremely well in his time as manager. But he is said to have a major say in who will b appointed as the next manager of Manchester United.
Manchester United had announced his appointment earlier this week and the new interim boss ‘will speak to the media for the first time in the role on Friday ahead of the opening game of his tenure at home against Crystal Palace on Sunday’. Carrick claimed yesterday that he has not yet spoken to Rangnick with the German unable to offer any input. Carrick, who served as assistant coach to Solskjaer and his predecessor Jose Mourinho, is likely to revert to a backroom role but the ex-Man Utd midfielder admits he has enjoyed his spell in the hot seat.
