Man Utd makes clarification on Solskjaer’s permanent replacement
Manchester United have made it clear that it will rush a decision about their next permanent manager, according to the club’s football director John Murtough.
Recall that Ralf Rangnick has been appointed as interim coach, after Ole Gunnar Solskjaer was sacked in November.
Mauricio Pochettino and Erik ten Hag are two of the names being considered for the United job, but Murtough has insisted they will take their time.
Rangnick has already admitted he could recommend that he stays in charge for another year, if the right candidate is not available in the summer.
“Out of respect for Ole, we did not approach other managers before he left.
“Our plan then was to appoint an experienced interim manager and Ralf was our clear first choice.
“He’s someone I have admired for a long time, and we’re delighted he’s here. By bringing in Ralf, we can now take time to run a thorough process for our next permanent manager.
“Recruiting a manager is one of the most important decisions a football club makes so we want to do it in a careful and considered fashion,” Murtough told a fans’ forum.
