Man Utd put hunt for new boss on HOLD

Manchester United hold on to search for new boss – Ralph Rangnick has impressed club chiefs.

The German interim boss claims five wins out of eight league games, loses just one, and also earns the club a fourth-round FA Cup tie against Middlesbrough next week.

Although the performance may not be thrilling, the Old Trafford chiefs have noted how they stabilized the ship against a disturbing backdrop.

The board is interested to see what it can achieve between now and the end of the season.

A top four spot and qualification for next season’s Champions League will go a long way in securing United’s job on a permanent basis for the next two years.

Rangnik, 63, has begun to unite the divided camp.

He has also treated some of the club’s egos well with his public statements.

Recently he asked Cristiano Ronaldo to calm down the histrionics after being strapped to Brentford.

That switch worked with Marcus Rashford to score a third.

His replacement on Saturday against fourth-placed West Ham did the same with all three players he had fired in the final gasping goal, with Rashford getting the crucial final touch.

That win put the Red Devils in the top four at The Hammer’s expense.

Defensively, United have improved with four clean sheets in their ten matches and conceded only one from the other six matches.

It was initially thought that Rangnik was being used as a stop-gap until the end of the season and then moved upstairs to an advisory role.

Mauricio Pochettino at Paris Saint-Germain, Eric ten Haig at Ajax and Leicester’s Brendan Rodgers are on United’s shortlist as successors.

But the belief is that the answer may be at his own door in the high-class German, who cites both Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp and Chelsea’s Thomas Tuchel as inspirations.

Rangnik himself made it clear after taking the job at United that he would keep it on a permanent basis if the interim period went well.

Rangnik said: “Maybe if they ask for my opinion and everything goes well and we develop the team I can make the same recommendation to the board which I did twice in Leipzig when I recommended Was that it might be a good idea to work with me for a year.”
