London, May 29 / BNA / Ralf Rangnick announced, on Sunday, that he will not take up his position as a consultant at Manchester United Football Club, due to the requirements of his new job as Austrian coach.
Rangnick was due to move into a consulting position after he was United’s interim manager for the second half of the recently completed season.
Erik ten Hag has been appointed as Manchester United’s new full-time manager and started this week, according to the Associated Press.
“We would like to thank Ralph Rangnick for his efforts as interim manager over the past six months,” United said.
By mutual agreement, Ralf will now only focus on his new role as Austrian manager, and therefore will not take on an advisory role at Old Trafford. We would like to wish Ralph all the best in this next chapter of his career.”
