Excitement is building around Manchester United again after recent news that they have finally selected Ralf Rangnick as the new interim manager until the end of the season. Many fans and pundits have embraced this new direction the club is willing to take following the sacking of Ole Gunner Solskjaer. Despite his success as a player, Solskjaer was thought as too inexperienced to manage the club the size of United.
Rangnick on the other hand is considered a football genius in Germany due to his revolutionary tactics that have shaped the careers of many top managers. Rangnick introduced the "gengen pressing" in German football which was borrowed and made popular by Jurgen Klopp.
Some of the top managers who have been influenced by Rangnick include Chelsea's Thomas Tuchel who was his player, Jurgen Klopp who borrowed his tactical blue print from Rangnick. Southampton manager Ralph Hasenhuttl, Bayern Munich's Julian Nagelsman. Marco Rose of Borussia Dortmund. Most top managers in top teams in German have all claimed to have learned from Rangnick.
When it comes to tactics Rangnick is one of the best. United fans will not complain how their team looks clueless on the field because the players will be well drilled and fit enough to go toe to toe with the best in the League.
Do you think he will be a success at United?
