United confirmed on Monday that Rangnick would be the man to replace Ole Gunnar Solskjaer in the short term, and would stay on at the club for two years after his coaching stint to offer consultancy to the club’s hierarchy.

“I am excited to be joining Manchester United and focused on making this a successful season for the club,” Rangnick said. “The squad is full of talent and has a great balance of youth and experience. All my efforts for the next six months will be on helping these players fulfil their potential, both individually and, most importantly, as a team.

“Beyond that, I look forward to supporting the club’s longer-term goals on a consultancy basis.”
