Although succeeding Ole Gunnar Solskjaer was a move that was lauded at the time, Rangnick failed to inspire much of an improvement in results and ended up overseeing just 11 victories during his 29 matches at the helm.
Rangnick’s decision to take up the post with Austria national team – a role he intended to combine his consultancy duties at Old Trafford – also left fans unimpressed, and his brief spell at the club came to an abrupt end just a week after United lost 1-0 to Crystal Palace in the final match of the season.
United said in a statement: “We would like to thank Ralf Rangnick for his efforts as interim manager over the past six months. By mutual agreement, Ralf will now focus solely on his new role as manager of the Austria national team and will not therefore be taking up a consultancy role at Old Trafford. We would like to wish Ralf the best of luck in this next chapter of his career.”
