Ralf Rangnick makes Man United manager recommendation to INEOS



| Last Updated:


Former Manchester United interim manager Ralf Rangnick has made a recommendation to INEOS on who should be the next Manchester United manager.

Rangnick, 65, was in charge at United for the second half of the 2021/22 campaign with the view to take up a role behind the scenes afterwards.

Instead, the veteran executive took on a role as the head coach of the Austria national team when Erik ten Hag joined the Old Trafford club.

Rangnick had some highlights during his United stint, although most of them came in the press conference room. The German famously stated that the club needed “open heart surgery”.

Now, that process seems to be taking place under the new leadership of INEOS following Sir Jim Ratcliffe’s investment in the club.

His right-hand man, Sir Dave Brailsford, has been tasked with undergoing an audit of everything at the club and also identifying the necessary moves that should be made.

According to a recent report from Pete Hall, the INEOS chief sought advice from Rangnick about the Old Trafford club.

The journalist has since added that the Austria head coach has recommended that United look at Julian Nagelsmann as an option for the managerial role.

Erik ten Hag’s future at the club beyond this season is unknown and INEOS want the manager to concentrate solely on coaching – with the new hierarchy, soon to be headed by Dan Ashworth, to set the style of play and overriding philosophy at the club.

Nagelsmann has recently been linked with the move. He is currently the manager of the German national team and has previously held managerial positions at RB Leipzig, TSG Hoffenheim, and Bayern Munich.
