At the end of May, it became clear that Rangnick was finished at Manchester United.
Initially, the plan was that he would lead United off-season, as he did, and that he would then move into an advisory role for the next two years.
However, the chancellor’s role did not materialize and, according to a press release from Manchester United, he ended two years earlier than planned as he was focused on his job as Austria national team manager.
– You won’t meet Rangnick
Now, however, claims ESPN That part of the reason Rangnick’s tenure at United has ended is due to new Manchester United manager Eric Ten Hag’s reluctance to work with the German in his advisory role.
The relationship between Rangnick and Tin Haag is said to have gone awry from the start, after the Dutchman refused to have a face-to-face meeting with Rangnick when it became clear that Tin Haag would take charge of the club.
Tin Hag should only have agreed to speak with him on the phone.
According to ESPN, several club managers at United have since begun severing ties with Rangnick after speaking to Ten Hag. This should be the beginning of the end for the 63-year-old at Manchester United.

It must be a reaction to Rangnick’s remarks
Some of Rangnick’s comments in the media were also said to have upset United’s leaders.
Many are said to be unhappy with the fact that he has stated that United need up to ten new signings during this summer’s transfer window. Also when he said United failed to sign Julian Alvarez, Luis Diaz and Duzan Vlahovic during the January transfer window, many within the club had to react.
According to ESPN sources, Rangnick has also been asked to sign a confidentiality agreement as part of his leaving the club.
Rangnick’s time at Manchester United was unforgettable. He took over his coaching last November, winning only 11 of the 29 matches he played.
United finished sixth in the standings, with 58 points – the lowest score for a red shirt ever in the Premier League.
