Liverpool manager, Jürgen Klopp, believes Ralf Rangnick’s expected arrival at arch-rivals Manchester United is “not good news for other teams”.
Klopp’s fellow German is set to be installed as interim manager at Old Trafford until the end of the season following the sacking of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.
Rangnick has had some influence on the Liverpool boss in terms of the pressing style which has been so successful for him and Klopp knows exactly what to expect.
“Unfortunately a good coach is coming to England, that’s how it is, to Manchester United,” he said.
“Ralf is obviously a really experienced manager. He built most famously two clubs from nowhere to proper threats and forces in Germany with Hoffenheim and Leipzig.
“United will be organised on the pitch, we should realise that — that’s obviously not good news for other teams.
“But all coaches in the world, we need time to train with our teams and Ralf will pretty quickly realise he has no time to train as they play all the time, so that makes it a bit tricky for him.
“Apart from that, a really good man and an outstanding coach, if it happens, will come to England.”
Man Utd’s Football Will Be Different – Bayern Munich Coach On Ralf Rangnick
Bayern Munich coach, Julian Nagelsmann, has insisted that Ralf Rangnick will be incredible for Manchester United and their football will be vastly different from anything they have played in recent years.
Rangnick has agreed on a deal to become the interim manager at Manchester United for the rest of the season and will take charge of the club next week.
The German is also expected to play a role in identifying their next permanent manager and will provide his input into their long term vision as a consultant following the end of the campaign.
Rangnick handpicked Nagelsmann to coach RB Leipzig a few years ago and the current Bayern Munich boss is delighted to see his former mentor at a club of Manchester United’s stature.
He is certain that the 63-year-old will make his mark on Manchester United and stressed that the football they will play will be different from anything their fans have experienced in recent years.
Nagelsmann said in a press conference: “I think it’s cool. I even texted him, ‘cool’.
“I am happy for him, I like him very much.
“He will be incredible for Manchester United, for the entire club simply because of his power, the way he will play football, which will be completely different from what has happened in recent years.”
Rangnick is expected to be in the dugout when Manchester United host Arsenal at Old Trafford next Thursday.
