Rangnick to add ex-NY Red Bulls boss to his Man Utd coaching staff

Ralf Rangnick is set to add former New York Red Bulls boss Chris Armas to his coaching staff at Manchester United, according to reports.

Rangnick has been appointed as United’s interim boss. He replaces Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, who left the club last month.

The former Schalke and RB Leipzig boss is set to be in charge until the summer. He will then take up a consultancy role for another two years.

Premier League winners and losers is led by Fred!

His first game in charge was against Crystal Palace over the weekend. Fred scored a late winner as United won 1-0.

The Athletic are reporting that Ragnick will be adding Armas to his coaching staff. During his playing career, he had spells at LA Galaxy and Chicago Fire.

He has gone onto manage New York Red Bulls and Toronto FC. He left the latter in July after winning one of his eleven games in charge.

Elsewhere, Kenny Dalglish believes Rangnick’s appointment gives Man Utd a “potential problem”:

“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.”
