Manchester United reach agreement with Ralph Rangnick to become interim boss

Manchester United stepped into a new era this week as they finally brought the axe down on Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.

The embattled boss was shown the door after a whomping 4-1 humiliation at the hands of Watford – the latest in a long line of dreadful results for the club.

The writing was on the wall following their 5-0 drubbing at the hands of bitter rivals Liverpool but it was the Watford loss that proved to be the final nail in the coffin.

Now, attentions have turned to who might replace the United legend in the hot-seat, with Michael Carrick currently acting in a caretaker capacity.

It is believed that the favourite candidate in among the Old Trafford halls of power is Mauricio Pochettino, but wrestling him away from PSG mid-season could prove to be tricky.

The next best option would be to install an interim boss, which seems to be exactly what they plan to do.

News has broken today that United have reached an agreement with Ralph Rangnick to become interim boss until the end of the season, with a two-year consultancy to follow after.
