Premier League giants, Manchester United have appointed 63-year-old German coach, Ralf Rangnick as their interim manager until the end of the season.
The announcement follows after Man United sack their coach Ole Gunnar Solsjaer following a heavy lost to Watford in the Premier League a week ago.
In a tweet post on the club’s official page, it read;

Rangnick has left his role as head of sports and development at Russian club Lokomotiv Moscow to take up the job.
Following the sacking of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer last week, Carrick has been placed in temporary charge while United conduct a thorough process to appoint a caretaker coach until the end of the season.
Former Barcelona head coach Ernesto Valverde and former Lyon head coach Rudi Garcia were also considered for the interim role, however, the Red Devils chose Rangnick.
United are planning to make a permanent appointment at the end of the season and Paris Saint-Germain boss Mauricio Pochettino is their first choice, with Ajax head coach Erik ten Hag also in their thinking.
While waiting for the official announcement of their new interim manager, Man United managed to pulled out a draw with Premier League leaders, Chelsea on Super Sunday clash at Stamford Bridge.
Sancho pounced on poor control from Jorginho to race clear and beat Edouard Mendy with a composed finish after the hosts had dominated possession.
Chelsea were stung into action and Jorginho made amends for his error when he equalised from the spot in the 69th minute after Aaron Wan-Bissaka fouled Thiago Silva.
United survived in relative comfort apart from a big late chance for Antonio Rudiger and will regard this as a welcome point in tough territory after a succession of Premier League horror shows led to Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s sacking.
