Ralf Rangnick: Following the sacking of Ole Gunnar Solskjær after a poor run of results. Ralf Rangnick was appointed as interim manager of United until the end of the season. Following this period he was expected to continue in a consultancy role for a further two years.
The German’s time at Old Trafford was far from ideal to say the least. With a win record of just 42%, the lowest of any United manager in the Premier League.
Rangnick was appointed manager of the Austria national team in April. He was expected to balance the roles with both teams. However Manchester United have announced both parties have parted ways.
A statement on their website read: “We would like to thank Ralf Rangnick for his efforts as interim manager over the past six months.
“By mutual agreement, Ralf will now focus solely on his new role as manager of the Austria national team. And will not therefore be taking up a consultancy role at Old Trafford.
“We would like to wish Ralf the best of luck in this next chapter of his career.
“Rangnick took charge at the beginning of December and led the team through the remainder of a challenging season, with his spell as interim boss providing United with crucial time to conduct a thorough search for our next manager, resulting in the appointment of Erik ten Hag.
“He will now take charge of Austria for their upcoming Nations League fixtures, as they face Croatia, Denmark and France in Group A1.
“Once again, we are grateful to Ralf for all his hard work and wish him the best for the future.”
