Ralf Rangnick

Manchester United interim boss Ralf Rangnick has revealed he could stay at Old Trafford beyond his initial contract. 

Ralf was appointed as the interim coach on a six-month contract following the departure of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer. The 63-year-old contract with the Red Devils will expire at the end of the current season and has hinted he could stay next campaign.

“The people with whom I’ve spoken with, they have been very clear that it is a six-month role,” said the German in his first press conference.

“We have never spoken about what will happen in the summer. If they will speak about me with that, we will see. if they ask me about my opinion, I might make the same recommendation that I did at RB Leipzig twice, that it might be better to work with me for one year.”

On Carrick departure

“I met with Michael and with Kieran [McKenna] but especially with Michael two days ago, I had a long private conversation with him for more than an hour,” he said.

“I was trying to convince him to stay on board but he had obviously taken that decision weeks ago that he needed a break and a rest after thirty years in professional football.

“In the end, I had to accept that, in a way, I can also understand his decision.”

The 63-year-old’s first game in charge will be against Crystal Palace this weekend.
