Ralf Rangnick: Manchester United interim manager named Austria boss


Manchester United interim manager Ralf Rangnick has been named Austria boss. Rangnick will still take on his consultancy role with United as planned at the end of this season. “I’m really looking forward to playing my part in helping United become a real force again,” he said.

The 63-year-old German has signed a two-year deal with Austria and will join up with them after the Premier League season ends in May. “It is an honour for me to take on the role of manager,” he said. “The prospect of contesting the European Championships in Germany with a young team hungry for success fills me with great anticipation.”

Austria, 23rd in the Fifa rankings, have been without a head coach since the resignation of Franco Foda in March following their failure to qualify for this year’s World Cup. “We are very pleased that we were able to win an outstanding expert in international football as team boss,” said Gerhard Milletich, president of the Austrian Football Association.

“We are all convinced that he is the ideal man and that his vision will advance the national team.”
