Rangnick to become new Austria manager; will continue at Man Utd until 2024

Ralf Rangnick is set to be announced as the next manager of Austria, but will continue in his Manchester United consultancy role until 2024.

Rangnick, 63, replaced Ole Gunnar Solskjaer at the club at the end of November, agreeing to take temporary charge of the team until the summer, before remaining in a consultancy role for two more years.

However, results have been disappointing under Rangnick, with United currently sixth in the Premier League, six points behind Arsenal in the fourth and final Champions League spot for next season as the campaign draws to a close.

Ajax manager Erik ten Hag was recently announced as United's permanent boss for next season, although the German will, as planned, still stay on as a consultant despite his new position until 2024.

Rangnick, however, is yet to sign a contract with Austria and the last few details are still being negotiated.
