Man United’s search for a permanent manager to succeed Ralf Rangnick has reportedly intensified.
Rangnick was hired to the position on an interim basis in December 2021, replacing Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, who had been fired at the time.
The German, though, is scheduled to leave the club at the end of the season to take on a consultancy role.
Who may succeed Jose Mourinho as Man United’s permanent manager?
According to the Daily Mail, United’s board of directors has ‘begun the process of hiring a new permanent manager,’ with a shortlist of applicants deemed perfect for the post now ‘finalised.’
According to the publication, Mauricio Pochettino of Paris Saint-Germain and Erik ten Hag of Ajax are among the top candidates selected for the role.
Pochettino, on the other hand, is thought to have an advantage over Ten Hag due to his Premier League experience as manager of Tottenham Hotspur and Southampton.
With the French giants solidly in the Champions League, the Argentine is presently hunting silverware with PSG. The same can be said of Ten Hag, who led Ajax to the Champions League quarterfinals, where they will meet Benfica in the round of 16.
Ralf Rangnick’s spell is examined.
Rangnick has managed the Red Devils in 15 games in all competitions, winning eight, drawing five, and losing only twice.
His most recent appearance with United came against Leeds on Sunday, February 20, in a 4-2 victory for his side.
In the closing seconds of the game, Fred and Anthony Elanga came off the bench to score, inspiring the Manchester team to a stunning victory.
