Ralf Rangnick has two-year consultancy role with Man Utd SCRAPPED after shocking interim spell as manager
29th May 2022

RALF RANGNICK has had his consultancy role at Manchester United SCRAPPED after a dismal season at Old Trafford.

The German had been scheduled to transition into an advisory role for the next two years.

Now though that is no longer the case after the two parties mutually agreed to part ways.

SunSport exclusively revealed last month that Rangnick's position at the club was in doubt.

The 63-year-old confirmed the news in a press conference with the Austrian national team.

The "demands of his new role" as boss of Austria are the reason for his exit.

In a statement United thanked Rangnick for his efforts, which included a lowest Premier League points tally in Red Devils' history.

It said: “We would like to thank Ralf Rangnick for his efforts as interim manager over the past six months.

“By mutual agreement, Ralf will now focus solely on his new role as manager of the Austria national team and will not therefore be taking up a consultancy role at Old Trafford.

“We would like to wish Ralf the best of luck in this next chapter of his career.”

Rangnick had been scheduled to work just six days a month in his consultancy position, juggling the role with being head coach of Austria.

Reports earlier this month claimed Rangnick was determined to juggle the consultancy position with the Austria job.

Rangnick's first game in charge of Austria is a Nations League clash against Croatia on Friday.

Home and away clashes against Denmark follow next month, with a clash against France scheduled in between.

Rangnick's poor time at United is underlined by his points-per-game value of 1.5 and win rate of just 42 per cent, the lowest of any United manager in the Premier League era.

The former Schalke manager has been succeeded in the position by Erik ten Hag, and was set to give the Dutchman advice on the squad he inherits.
