It sounds like Ralf Rangnick will take a ‘backseat’ role at Manchester United at the end of the season.
The German was appointed interim manager in December with the promise of becoming a consultant for two years, but the Daily Mail claims that no-one knows what his responsibilities will include.
How Manchester United does that sound? Ed Woodward has left the building but the incompetence remains.
We’ve had club suits asleep at the wheel for years, greedy businessmen milking their commercial cash cow, and now Rangnick’s so-called advisory role is being watered down.
The Mail adds that Rangnick will only have to work 144 days over the next two years, plus the extent of his role could be determined on the next manager’s preference.
Rangnick has also been linked with the manager’s job at Austria, with suggestions that he could juggle both jobs at once.
It remains unclear where exactly Rangnick will fit into everything at the club, with Erik ten Hag leading the race to become manager.
