Manchester United have reportedly put their search for a new manager on hold after
Rangnick’s team have also been shored up defensively with four clean sheets from his
10 games and only conceding once in all but one of the other matches.
Although United’s performances have not left supporters too excited, he has guided
the Red Devils back into contention for a Champions League place next term as the
club heads into the winter break fourth in the table.
According to the Sun, he could now be a contender to land the job on a full-time
basis, especially if he secures Champions League qualification via the Premier League
this term as the club’s board monitor his progress until the end of the season.
Rangnick entered a fractured dressing room and has shown little fear in dealing with
some of the club’s stars.
He has not backed away from disputes with Cristiano Ronaldo, warning the star
forward over showing his public frustrations having substituted him against
Rangnick has also been happy to start trimming a bloated squad, allowing fringe
forward Anthony Martial to leave for Sevilla, initially on loan, while he has also given
his blessing to allow Jesse Lingard to depart Old Trafford.
United have a shortlist of candidates to appoint this summer including Paris Saint-
Germain manager Mauricio Pochettino, Ajax boss Erik ten Hag, Sevilla’s Julen
Lopetegui and Spain coach Luis Enrique.
