Former RB Leipzig manager Ralf Rangnick would be interested in replacing Ole Gunnar Solskjaer at Manchester United if the latter is sacked over the upcoming international break, according to reports. The current Red Devils boss is facing an uncertain future at Old Trafford after Saturday’s one-sided defeat at the hands of Manchester City on their own patch.
Solskjaer has been on thin ice since United were thrashed by Liverpool in last month’s encounter but looked to be in the process of redeeming himself after mounting a solid response.
United went on to register a convincing win over Tottenham before claiming a welcome point in the Champions League against Atalanta away from home.
However, the performance in Saturday’s meeting with their cross-city rivals will have done little to convince the club’s hierarchy that Solskjaer is the right man to turn their fortunes around.
The hosts were firmly second-best throughout the encounter, with an own goal from Eric Bailly handing City the perfect start before Bernardo Silva doubled their advantage on the stroke of half-time.
It remains to be seen whether Solskjaer will be relieved of his duties over the coming weeks, but it seems as though there will be no shortage of potential candidates with an interest in taking over at Old Trafford.
Rangnick was originally linked with the United job back in 2019 but has since rekindled his interest in the role amid the ongoing speculation over Solskjaer’s future, according to Bild.
