Ralf Rangnick

Former Manchester United defender Gary Neville has tipped interim boss Ralf Rangnick to step aside at the end of the season. 

Rangnick took over at United on an interim basis for the remainder of the season following the sacking of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer. The German has not ruled out the possibility of staying beyond the summer as United boss despite pointing out that he would move into an advisory role at Old Trafford.

Rangnick comments

“Maybe if they ask my opinion and everything goes well and we develop the team I might even make the same recommendation to the board that I did at Leipzig twice when I recommended it might be a good idea to keep working with me for one year.”

However, Neville feels it would be best for the 63-year-old to step aside at the end of the current season.

“I don’t think he gets the job at the end of the season come what may now,” he said.

“I think that there was a feeling that if he went like that [gesturing upwards] that could happen. That isn’t going to happen, Manchester United will have a new manager next season.”

“I think he will [have a say on who the new manager is] because he has got a real good view of the personalities, characters, performance levels, training levels of the current group of players so he is in a strong position to be able to advise,” he added.

Ralf’s men will face Atletico Madrid tonight in the first leg of the Champions League last 16.
