Latest Premier League news: Manchester United’s impending interim manager Ralf Rangnick has reportedly made two demands to the club and this could revolutionize the Old Trafford outfit in days to come.
Following the departure of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, the Red Devils hierarchy have decided to appoint an interim boss and recent reports are claiming that Ralf Rangnick will become the temporary manager until the end of this season before taking over the consultancy role at the club.
According to the report in Daily Telegraph, Rangnick is reportedly looking to emphasize in-depth video analysis and wants to study the training footage from different camera angles.
The report further claims that the German boss is eyeing to install his infamous countdown clock to work on the intense pressing game and implement his counter-pressing philosophy on the current squad.
Rangnick previously explained the purpose of the clock is that he uses an eight-second rule system in training which is the players have to win possession in eight seconds after losing the ball and attempt a shot in 10 seconds after winning the possession.
The clock ticks at the back and the players can hear the sound of the clock. The German said that the sound at the back can be annoying for the players at first but this becomes instinct as they continue to work in this system.
Latest Premier League news: Will Manchester United achieve success under Rangnick?
Latest Premier League news: Signing Ralf Rangnick will be a great acquisition for Manchester United. The German is renowned as the professor of many modern coaches and the founder of the ‘Gegenpressing’ system. The 63-year-old was the inspiration of Thomas Tuchel and Jurgen Klopp.
Therefore, bringing in a manager of that calibre will be a great appointment for the Red Devils. Rangnick will bring structure and a system at the Old Trafford stadium which lacked under the former manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.
However, given the 63-year-old hasn’t managed any club outside Germany and hardly managed a team over the last decade, there will be a question mark if Rangnick can bring success at the Old Trafford stadium or not.
Nevertheless, Manchester United will surely improve on the pitch under the German tactician and it will be interesting to see how far he can take this talented side in the Premier League and in the Champions League.
