Roy Keane has been proven right over his trepidation about Manchester United’s decision to appoint an interim rather than permanent manager in the wake of the sacking of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer. The Red Devils opted to bring in Ralf Rangnick until the end of the campaign after firing Solskjaer in November.
But that move proved to be a disaster, with United finishing sixth with their lowest ever Premier League points total. And it has now been confirmed that the German will not be taking up a consultancy post at Old Trafford as planned, instead taking on the reigns of the Austrian national team.
When it was first revealed that Rangnick would be coming in as United’s temporary boss, Keane made his unhappiness at the arrangement clear. The Irishman insisted that the move to bring in Rangnick was not “ideal”.
“First of all, it was disappointing for Ole to finish in such a low obviously going through a difficult time the Watford result was really poor and the performance. Obviously, I’ve argued with Jamie [Carragher] about a manager getting enough time,” he told Sky Sports.
