Organisation founded by Ralf Rangnick ‘confirms’ appointment as Man Utd manager

An organisation founded by Ralf Rangnick confirmed on Instagram the German will be appointed as Manchester United's new interim manager…before quickly deleting their post.

Rangnick, 63, has reportedly agreed a six-month deal to manage the club before taking on a two-year consultancy role at Old Trafford.

The German's appointment has not yet been confirmed by the Red Devils, but that didn't stop a charity set up by Rangnick jumping the gun on Friday morning.

A post from the Ralf Rangnick Foundation was up on Instagram for around 30 minutes before it was hastily deleted, but that was just enough time for followers to take a screenshot of the error.

It claims the former RB Leipzig coach has fulfilled a 'long awaited dream' by signing with United, while also confirming the length of his contract.

It read: "Dear friends, promoters and fans of the Ralf Rangnick foundation, today we have something of our own to announce.

"We congratulate and are very hapy for our founder Ralf Rangnick, who signed a contract until the end of the season in summer 2022 as 'Interimstrainer' [interim] with the English club and thus gotten himself a long awaited dream came [sic] true.

"He will then act as an adviser of the prestigious club for two years. Ralf continued to be the most important ambassador of his foundation, which will now hopefully become even more popular in England as well and can do a lot of good for as many children as possible.

"At this point, a heartfelt thank you for your countless congratulations to Ralf, which have reached us through all possible channels and which we collectively convey to him."

They also uploaded a picture of Rangnick to their story captioned: "We congratulate our founder," which was also swiftly removed.
