Rangnick, German soccer’s ‘Professor,’ hired by Man United


AP Sports Writer

German coach Ralf Rangnick has been hired as Manchester United manager until the end of the season. The 63-year-old Rangnick has left his role as head of sports and development at Russian club Lokomotiv Moscow to take charge of the English club. United has been led by former player Michael Carrick since the firing of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer on Nov. 21. United is planning to hire a permanent manager in the offseason. Rangnick at that time will take up a “consultancy role for a further two years.” Rangnick is a pioneer of the high-intensity pressing game developed in Germany.
