[골닷컴] Reporter Hong Eui-taek = The manager has been appointed, but we can’t see him on the bench yet.
On the 29th of last month (Korean time), Manchester United revealed the person who will succeed Ole Gunnar Solskjaer. “Rangnick will take the baton as interim manager until June next year. After that, he will serve as an advisor for two years,” the announcement was made.
Manchester United want a different look with immediate shock therapy. But there are also downsides. According to several local media such as British ‘Mirror’ and ‘Mail’, it seems that coach Rangnick will not be able to step on the pitch for the upcoming Arsenal match. This is due to the failure to complete administrative procedures including work permits. Michael Carrick is expected to lead the squad again in the technical zone.
Of course, there are also reports that Rangnick was involved tactically and strategically from the last match against Chelsea. Even though he couldn’t coach directly on the field, he said he gave instructions to the coaching staff through electronic devices during the game. However, the general consensus is that the effect was not great. Head coach Thomas Tuchel commented, “I didn’t see Rangnick’s football color at United at all.”
United fell to eighth place in the Premier League. They are five points less than the top four, which qualify for next season’s UEFA Champions League. Rangnick’s responsibilities are quite heavy until he finds an official manager next summer.
