Manchester United interim manager for five months, Ralf Rangnick will be inducted as Austria’s new coach on Friday afternoon. A month after the dismissal of the German technician Franco Foda, the Austrian Federation (ÖFB) hesitated for a long time between Peter Stöger, the former coach of the Girondins de Bordeaux Vladimir Petkovic and Rangnick.
First match in Croatia on June 3
The latter will sign a two-year contract which will lead him to the 2024 European Championship in Germany. He will inaugurate his new adventure in Croatia on June 3 on the occasion of the League of Nations, before finding himself on the road to the France team at the Ernst-Happel-Stadion in Vienna a week later, then at the Stade de France on September 22.
The German coach has reached an agreement with the ÖFB to remain in parallel at Manchester United beyond this season as an adviser to the English club and Erik ten Hag, his successor on the Red Devils bench. He will officially work six days a month on site.
