MU interim coach Ralf Rangnick has been officially named the new captain of the Austrian side on a two-year deal.
The Austrian Football Association has just announced the selection Ralph Rangnik as the new captain of their national team. The 63-year-old leader replaces compatriot Franco Roda, who resigned after failing to help England win tickets to the 2022 World Cup.
Coach Ralf Rangnick has signed a two-year contract with the Austrian Football Association with an option to extend it for another two years if he helps the Austrian team reach the finals of Euro 2024.
Significantly, Ralf Rangnick stated that although he leads the Austrian team, he will continue to act as a consultant mu under the new captain Erik ten Hag for the next 2 seasons:
“I will take over the position of head coach of the Austrian national team, but will continue to work as a consultant for the MU. I look forward to helping the club become a real force again“.
Ralf Rangnick has been chosen as interim manager by MU to replace Solskjaer since November last year. However, it was a wrong short date for both sides. The German strategist became the worst-performing MU manager in Premier League history.
Manager Rangnick is expected to meet Erik ten Hag from mid-May after the new MU captain takes up his duties at Old Trafford on July 1.
