Manchester United interim boss Ralf Rangnick has been confirmed as the Austria national team manager. 

Ralf will remain in the United consultancy role until the summer of 202 but it will be in a part-time role. He is expected to take up his post when preparations for the UEFA Nations League games against Croatia, Denmark, and France start at the end of May.

“The ÖFB Presidium unanimously appointed Ralf Rangnick as the new team boss of the national team on Friday,” a statement from Austria read.
