Ralf Rangnick confirms his Man United future

Manchester United interim manager Ralph Rangnick has confirmed that he will remain at the club in an advisory role.

But the German refused to comment on the speculation linking him to the role of the Austrian national team.

Upon signing his deal at United in November, the 63-year-old was set to take on an advisory role once the club appointed a permanent manager.

“I want to talk tonight about Manchester United, our game and the rest of the season here,” he said after United’s 1-1 draw against Chelsea at Old Trafford.

“That is the problem and I can also confirm that I will continue in my advisory job at the end of the season.

“I will definitely continue in my advisory role for the next couple of years and I am very much looking forward to that.

“You’ll make room for another job, yes, but that’s what we agreed to start on in November of last year.”

Rangnick said he will remain as chancellor while United begin rebuilding under Ten Hag, although the Dutchman and German have yet to talk about the future.

“I didn’t say I’d be a big part of it, but we’ve definitely agreed now on the contract and time for my consulting work,” added Ralph.

“So far, Eric and I haven’t spoken, but hopefully and maybe it will happen in the future. But we have spoken to the board of directors about the contract and for that I can assure that I will continue to work.”

“I am more than happy and ready to help change things for the better.”

Rangnick has been closely linked with the Austrian national team’s managerial role, with reports suggesting he will be announced any time from now.
