Due to the responsibilities of his new post as Austrian manager, Ralf Rangnick has declared that he would not be remaining on as a consultant at Manchester United.
In a press conference with Austria on Sunday, Rangnick confirmed the news, and Manchester United 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 took over at the start of December and guided the squad through the remainder of a difficult season, giving United valuable time to conduct a comprehensive search for the team’s next manager, which resulted in the appointment of Erik ten Hag.
He will now lead Austria in their forthcoming Nations League matches, which will pit them against Croatia, Denmark, and France in Group A1.
