Ralf Rangnick Will Be Confirmed As National Team Manager 'Within Next 24-48 Hours'

Manchester United interim Ralf Rangnick will be confirmed as Austria national team manager within the next 24-48 hours but will continue his consultancy role at Old Trafford, according to reports.

Back in November, following the sacking of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, the former RB Leipzig coach was given an interim role at Old Trafford until the end of the season, with a two-year consultancy role being agreed.

He has enjoyed mixed success since taking over but it was confirmed last week that United have decided to appoint Ajax boss Erik ten Hag, who will take over at the end of the 2021/22 campaign.

In terms of Rangnick's future, the 63-year-old will take the advisory role at United this summer, according to Sky Sports, but he will also become the new head coach of Austria's national team.

Nothing is signed yet, says Sky Sports journalist Florian Plettenberg, but the final details are being clarified, with an announcement set to be confirmed on Friday morning.

Earlier this week, Rangnick said he was "looking forward" to working in an advisory role alongside Erik ten Hag, who is set to take over the reigns at Old Trafford this summer.


“I strongly believe that there is a lot of things that can become better and will become better with a new manager and hopefully with some new players, with some fresh energy in that squad," he said.

"With this group of new players and the quality of players that are already here, together with the new manager, I am very positive that next season will be a lot better."

"I am looking forward to working in that advisory role and obviously helping Eric as much as he wants it himself," he added.


"Obviously, I am more than willing and prepared to help both Erik and whomever in the club in order to change everything for the better."
