Official: Carrick Hands Over Man Utd Interim Manager Role To

Rangnick Appointed As Man Utd Interim Coach

Manchester United have replaced Michael Carrick with German Ralf Rangnick as interim manager until the end of the season, the Premier League club announced on Monday.

Rangnick steps in to replace Solskjaer who was removed after United's 4-1 defeat by Watford this month, their seventh loss in 13 games across all competitions which left them eighth in the Premier League standings.

"Manchester United is delighted to announce the appointment of Ralf Rangnick as interim manager until the end of the season, subject to work visa requirements. Following this period, Ralf and the club have agreed that he will continue in a consultancy role for a further two years," the club said in a statement.

Former midfielder Michael Carrick, one of Solskjaer's assistants, took charge of the team for their Champions League victory at Villarreal last Tuesday and oversaw the 1-1 draw with Chelsea on Sunday.

Rangnick, who began coaching in the early 1980s, is a proponent of 'gegenpressing' – a style of football in which teams press high and use counter-pressing to win the ball back as soon as possible after losing it, rather than falling back to regroup.
