Ralf Rangnick’s start at Manchester United has been rather underwhelming.
There have been reports this week that stars in the United dressing room have not fully taken to the German, who was appointed as interim manager in the wake of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s dismissal.
United plan to move Rangnick into a consultancy role after his short spell in charge of the team, with a new, permanent manager their target ahead of next season.
However, whoever the club picks must reportedly gain the approval of Cristiano Ronaldo.
