Ralf Rangnick is close to becoming Manchester United's manager on an interim basis until the end of the season, before becoming a club advisor for the next two years. A contract that offers him the ability to intervene and make decisions in a club that, despite having money and having a first-rate squad, does not have a clear project due to the constant bad decisions that its owners have made.
The German is a radical change in the way of working of the club that, taking out a couple of names, had always opted for British coaches to give continuity to the idea. The need to compete against the best in the world (Pep Guardiola's Manchester City, Thomas Tuchel's Celsea and Jûrgen Klopp's Liverpool) and the absence of a free chance at this time (Mauricio Pochettino has a contract with PSG) forced the institution to bet on a German project.
Rangnick is an important character in today's football. He is the creator of a style of play that is dominating Europe and that has several exponents that are dominating today (Klopp, Nagelsmann and Tuchel). An important school that is coming out all over Europe.
He is an eccentric coach in his work schedules, rigorous in all aspects, flexible at the tactical level when it comes to stopping the team and looking for individual solutions. They are faithful to their idea of an offensive game of pressure and with bets on physical players.
The German will come to Old Trafford to change the dynamics of a club with an impressive squad and that, if he receives a leap in quality at a tactical level, he can compete for all the important titles that lie ahead. An interesting bet that can change the history of the club in the short and long term.
