Ralf Rangnick’s role as a consultant at Manchester United is being phased out.
MANCHESTER UNITED has had a sluggish start under Ralf Rangnick.
Ralf Rangnick’s consultancy role at Manchester United will not be axed, according to reports, even if his time at Old Trafford is a disappointment.
Following the departure of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer at the end of November, the German is now in charge of the team.
His first few months with the club, however, have fallen short of expectations.
United had hoped that Solskjaer would lead them to the title this season after awarding him a new three-year contract and bolstering his squad with summer signings such as Jadon Sancho, Raphael Varane, and Cristiano Ronaldo.
However, things did not work out, and the 48-year-old was fired after a 4-1 loss at Watford.
United then turned to Rangnick, who was widely expected to turn things around at the time of his appointment.
However, the 63-year-old’s tenure has been slow thus far, with the Red Devils underwhelming.
So far, they’ve only won three of their six games, beating Crystal Palace, Norwich, and Burnley, drawing with Young Boys and Newcastle, and losing to Wolves on Monday.

Given this, some have speculated about Rangnick’s prospects if his performance continues to deteriorate.
Even if the German’s time at the club has been a disappointment, the Daily Mail reports that he is set to stay.
United is adamant about not making hasty decisions, and they want Rangnick to continue to assist them even after he leaves.
At the moment, there appear to be two front-runners for the position of permanent manager at the club.
Mauricio Pochettino is the favorite, with the Paris Saint-Germain manager eager to return to the Premier League at some point in the future.
DON’T MISS OUT
West Ham could accept four Manchester United players in a Rice trade.
Chelsea striker Romelu Lukaku will be punished, according to Abramovich.
Liverpool may sack six players this season.
PSG has stated that they want the Argentine to stay, but it’s possible that egos in the dressing room will force Pochettino to leave for England.
Erik ten Hag is another suspect.
The Dutchman has done wonders for Ajax over the years and is thought to be of interest to United, who are looking for a brighter future.
Rangnick isn’t in the running for it.
