Liverpool legend Dalglish reveals ‘potential problem’ at Man Utd

Liverpool legend Kenny Dalglish thinks there is a “potential problem” with the management plan at Man Utd.

Ralf Rangnick has been appointed interim boss at Old Trafford until the end of the season before he takes on a two-year consultancy role at the Premier League club.

The Red Devils will then look to appoint a permanent successor to Ole Gunnar Solskjaer in the summer with PSG boss Mauricio Pochettino and Leicester City manager Brendan Rodgers heavily linked.

And former Liverpool manager and player Dalglish is unsure whether the management plan at Man Utd is a good idea but admits it will be “intriguing”.

“Ralf Rangnick has been appointed as interim manager until the end of the season,” Dalgish wrote in the Sunday Post. “But what happens after that?

“If Ralf is a success, would it really be wise to let him leave the head coach’s role in the summer to become a football consultant at the club for the next two years?

“This appears to be the scenario the Old Trafford hierarchy have planned, and it’s widely accepted that Ralf will stand down at the end of the season.

“From the outside, it looks like they already have a good idea of who the next permanent head coach is going to be.

“I’d imagine it would need to be someone who is going to be comfortable working with Ralf. But if the new guy comes in, would you want to be associated with Ralf if he doesn’t do well?

“The flip side is that if he does do well, then you are risking your neck trying to follow a success story.

“So it will be intriguing, regardless of how it goes, and there could be a potential problem, either way.”

Another former Liverpool player, Graeme Souness, also recently gave his opinion on the Man Utd plan. Souness said last week: “This is the third interim manager since Fergie went. I don’t get it.

“The man Rangnick’s CV is not one you would go ‘wow’ and doesn’t jump out at you. He’s not been super successful. I think he’s won one trophy.

“His talent would appear, and we will find out, to go into a football club and develop the structure and improve in a five to ten year period.

“That’s not what Man Utd need right now. Man United need it instantly. They need someone to make an impact now.”
