Manchester Utd Finally Identify Next Manager After Pochettino’s Decision To Respect PSG’s Contract
Manchester United have finally identified the manager that will coach the club until the end of the season after Mauricio Pochettino’s decision to respect his contract with Paris Saint-Germain.
According to Manchester Evening News, Ralf Rangnick, a former RB Leipzig head coach, is Manchester United’s first choice to take over as interim manager until the end of the 2021-22 season if they are unable to bring in Pochettino right away.
The report added that Man United made the decision after conducting interviews with candidates to take the job on a temporary basis.
The Red Devils have already held talks with former Barcelona manager Ernesto Valverde and former Lyon boss, Rudi Garcia.
Pochettino, who is favourite to become Man United’s next manager, has made it clear he has a contract with PSG until June 2023 and is happy in France.
“My contract with Paris is until June 2023. I’m very happy at PSG, that’s a fact. I am happy in Paris, I want to make it clear,” Pochettino said ahead of PSG’s Champions League clash with Manchester City on Wednesday night.
Pochettino, meanwhile, is said to be keen on a move to Man United, but unless he agitates for a move, PSG will not let him leave at this moment in time.
