Man United interim boss Ralf Rangnick should be handed the tools to build the club based on his own philosophy, according to former England manager Steve McClaren. 

The 63-year-old German’s appointment at Old Trafford until the end of the season was confirmed on Monday, though work permit issues will prevent him from taking charge against Arsenal on Thursday.

The former RB Leipzig boss – whose gegenpressing style has had a significant impact on modern coaches like Jurgen Klopp and Thomas Tuchel – will remain at United for a further two years in a consultancy position after his time as interim boss.

But McClaren hopes United grant him the freedom to build the club from the outset to help create a DNA for the club for the remainder of the season and beyond, even if it means replacing current coaching staff or players.

‘I hope United are clever and they’ll allow him to build the club,’ McClaren told talkSPORT. ‘He’s gone in there six months as a manager and he’s a club builder.

‘He goes on the three Cs of concept, creating a DNA – for the club a recognisable style of play with fast, attacking football and competence – getting in the right staff and right players, that’s the key area.

‘He’s got his disciples in Jurgen Klopp, Thomas Tuchel, Julian Nagelsmann, Jesse Marsch at RB Leipzig. They’ve all been very successful under him and he needs to deliver that from the present coaches or bring new ones in and bring the right players in.

‘United have got cash and I hope they’re clever in creating the DNA for the football club and building it beyond.’

Caretaker boss Michael Carrick will remain in charge for their next Premier League game after seeing his side battle to a point at leaders Chelsea on Sunday.

Jadon Sancho, 21, scored his second goal in a week and was at the heart of their energetic display, and believes Rangnick could help the club reach the next level if he is allowed to work with such young talents.

‘Carrick has kind of produced that a little bit especially at Chelsea with the energy, the pressing,’ McClaren added. ‘They’re quite able to do that with the players they’ve got, they’re young and energetic.

‘One thing I saw when researching Rangnick is that he loves young players and developing them. Man United have a lot of young players that need developing, they just need a style.

‘Man United without a shadow of a doubt have the players to bring themselves forward.’
