Rangnick named Austria boss but Man Utd role WILL continue

R

alf Rangnick has been named the new manager of the Austrian national team.

The 63-year-old will continue working on a consultancy basis with Manchester United once Erik Ten Hag replaces him as the club’s manager at the end of the season.

Ten Hag was confirmed earlier this month.

Rangnick arrived in Manchester with a glittering reputation for helping clubs shape a long-term strategy, although the German has failed to improve things at Old Trafford on a short-term basis.

The PA news agency understands United have been supportive of Rangnick taking the job with Austria, with the advisory position always holding the option for the 63-year-old to take on parallel roles.

“I will take over as national team manager of Austria at the end of the season but will continue my consultancy with Manchester United,” said Rangnick.

“I’m really looking forward to playing my part in helping United become a real force again.”
