The 63-year-old German will take charge of Manchester United until the end of the season before moving into an upstairs role after replacing the sacked Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.
Uramah media further gathered that the latter role is arguably just as noteworthy as his imminent presence in the Old Trafford hot-seat, given the club have been lacking direction from the top of the hierarchy throughout the post- Sir Alex Ferguson era.
Rangnick also has success as a director of football under his belt after taking on the role for both Red Bull Salzburg and RB Leipzig from 2012 onwards.
In his statement , He said: “I am excited to be joining Manchester United and focused on making this a successful season for the club.The squad is full of talent and has a great balance of youth and experience. All my efforts for the next six months will be on helping these players fulfil their potential, both individually and, most importantly, as a team.”
