Important news came from Old Trafford on Thursday, with Manchester United appointing Ralf Rangnick as interim manager.
What is it, did the Manchester United board of directors do something competent? It seems so, with David Ornstein reporting from within the club that the Premier League giants have appointed Ralph Rangnick to take over as interim manager of the club.
After last weekend’s loss to Watford, 4-1, manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer was sacked, which comes as no surprise. In Solskjaer’s absence, club legend Michael Carrick took over and helped lead the team to a 2-0 win over Villarreal in the Champions League on Tuesday. Now, Rangnick will have to patch the ship the rest of the season.

Currently, Rangnick works as Head of Sports and Development at Lokomotiv Moscow. He’s ready to leave Russia and head to England once his visa is approved, per Ornstein. Fans can’t wait for him to arrive in Manchester.
Manchester United entered the season with a lot of promise, but they are currently out looking at the top four in the league table. With they already out of the title race, it made no sense to walk away from Solskjaer, especially after the team spent so much to get to Jadon Sancho and Raphael Varane this summer.
For the rest of the season, Rangnick will have to bring this team back to the competition at a high level. Fortunately for the new interim manager, Manchester United have already beaten their ticket to the Champions League round of 16 with one game remaining in the group stages. Still, there is plenty of season left and there is more than enough time for United to make noise in the Premier League as well.
