Ralf Rangnick has a tough job on his hands to turn the fortunes of Manchester United around according to club legend Wayne Rooney. Derby County manager Wayne Rooney sat down with Sky Sports to talk about Rangnick who's expected to be named the interim manager at Manchester United this week.

Wayne Rooney stated that the German has a big job to do at Manchester United after their poor start to the current Premier League season. The Ex-Manchester United striker went on to say that the club has a chance of winning at least one major trophy with Rangnick in charge. 63-year-old Rangnick is presently the head of Sports and Development at Russian Premier League giants Lokomotiv Moscow. Manchester United are expected to reach an agreement with Lokomotiv Moscow officials before they can make Rangnick their interim manager until next summer. It has been reported that the German will stay on as a consultant at Manchester United until 2023 if the club were to appoint a new permanent manager next summer.

Manchester United are preparing to make Rangnick their interim manager after Ole Gunnar Solskjaer was dismissed from his role as the permanent Manchester United manager last weekend shortly after the hugely disappointing 4-1 league defeat at the hands of newcomers Watford. Solskjaer paid dearly with his job after a poor league run of four defeats in five games and five defeats in seven games.

The expectation is that Rangnick will be in the Manchester United dugout until the end of the season before a permanent managerial appointment is made with Paris Saint Germain (PSG) boss Mauricio Pochettino seen as the leading candidate to take the job. It was even suggested in the media that Pochettino could leave PSG for Manchester United in the middle of this season.
