Ralf Rangnick has reportedly demanded full power at Manchester United to replace the current manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer as per the report from Italian journalist Fabrizio Romano.
After the recent bad run of results from the Red Devils, the Norwegian boss’ job is in jeopardy. Few names have already been linked with a move to the Old Trafford stadium and the former RB Leipzig manager Ralf Rangnick is among them who wants to become the successor of Solskjaer.
Speaking on his YouTube channel Fabrizio Romano stated that the 63-year-old’s demand for full power at Manchester United has complicated the proceedings, despite few board members being interested in appointing Rangnick.
Romano further claimed that managing Manchester United is a dream of the German boss, but there hasn’t been any contact yet from the Red Devils hierarchy and the 63-year-old isn’t high on the list for the Old Trafford outfit. Fabrizio Romano said:
“It’s not easy because he wants the full power on everything. It’s not just the technical point, the system or these kinds of things. He wants to decide on everything at the club and this is why Ralf Rangnick isn’t so easy for Manchester United. He’s appreciated by someone in the board but he’s not one of the main options right now.
“From Rangnick there is the desire to manage with Manchester United, it is a dream for him. But, for now, there is nothing going on from United with Rangnick.”
Will Manchester United replace Solskjaer with Rangnick?
Recent reports are claiming that Manchester United are still backing Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and want to give the Norwegian more time to turn his fortune around at Old Trafford stadium.
The Red Devils have started the season on a higher note by winning four of their first five Premier League games. However, things haven’t gone according to plan afterwards as Solskjaer’s side have only managed to win one league game in the last six and are sitting nine points behind the league leader Chelsea.
Fans have already turned their backs from the Norwegian boss and a few former players have also criticised the 48-years-old’s tactics in recent games. So, the pressure is high on Solskjaer.
Meanwhile, bringing in a new manager could still save the season for the Old Trafford outfit, given the Red Devils have a talented squad. Manchester United are currently five points behind the Champions League spot and any more sleep up from now on could make the top-four finish in jeopardy.
