It’s official ! Interim Manchester United coach Ralf Rangnick has just signed on Friday afternoon with the Austrian federation to become its coach for the next two years and succeed the resigning Franco Foda. A function he will occupy in addition to his role as advisor to the Red Devils, who will be led by Erik ten Hag this summer. His contract at MU stipulates that he would only need six working days per month, which gives him the opportunity to take charge of the Rot-Weiss-Roten.
Arrived in Manchester in November 2021 in place of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, the former Schalke 04 and RB Leipzig technician should probably not succeed in qualifying the Red Devils for the next Champions League, five points behind Arsenal (4th) and eleven on the podium. “It is an honor for me to take on the task of coach. I am particularly looking forward to the prospect of competing in the European Championship in Germany with a young team eager for success.”, he said in the statement. However, his mission will be to perform in the League of Nations from June. As a reminder, Austria is in Group 1 of League A, along with Croatia, Denmark and the France team, which it will face on June 9.
