Manchester United confident Ralf Rangnick will be in charge for Crystal Palace game

Manchester United are expecting Ralf Rangnick to be in the dugout for Sunday’s Premier League game against Crystal Palace.

The German was confirmed as interim manager until the end of the season on Monday but he will not be in charge against Arsenal as his visa is yet to be granted.

Rangnick arrived in the UK before new travel restrictions kicked in on Tuesday morning, so he is free to start work at Carrington as soon as his visa is granted.

Approval of the application is just a formality but the Home Office haven’t given United any indication of when that will be, but there is confidence at Old Trafford that it will come through in time for Rangnick to be in charge on Sunday.

Even if the visa is granted on Wednesday, Rangnick will not be in the dugout against Arsenal and with uncertainty around when it will be approved club officials felt it was best to give Carrick the green light to continue, having already overseen the win in Villarreal and the draw with Chelsea.

But Rangnick is expected to be at Old Trafford for the game on Thursday night, although he will only be there as a spectator, with Carrick and his coaching staff having overseen all preparations for the game.

The 63-year-old was never going to be able to come in and take the team against the Gunners even if his visa was approved before the game, given he will want at least the training session before the game to drill ideas into his new squad. As a result United decided to make it clear Carrick would remain in charge at this early stage.

United’s final training session before Sunday’s fixture with Palace will take place on Saturday and Rangnick is likely to be in charge if the visa is given the stamp of approval by Friday, although it’s not inconceivable that it won’t be received in time, in which case Carrick would get a fourth game in charge.

United identified Rangnick as the man they wanted as interim manager in the early stages of the process and he impressed during interviews with football director John Murtough, technical director Darren Fletcher and executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward.

Rangnick, who is a hugely respected figure within the game, will be in charge of United until the end of the season and he will then continue in a two-year advisory role at the club.

Once his visa is confirmed he is expected to bring in a small number of backroom staff, but the vast majority of the current coaching team will remain.
