There are a lot of changes expected at Manchester United over the coming months. The squad could undergo an overhaul with the futures of players like Cristiano Ronaldo, Paul Pogba, Edinson Cavani, Anthony Martial, Donny van de Beek and many others still up in the air. One would expect multiple signings in the summer as well. But the most important move out of all will definitely be the appointment of a long-term manager.
Ralf Rangnick is only in the managerial hot seat at Old Trafford on an interim basis and is set to take up a consultancy role with the club at the end of the season, for the next couple of years.
As a result, it is safe to say that Manchester United will need to bring in a new permanent manager soon and they will need to get this appointment right.
The club appear to be headed towards their fifth straight trophyless campaign unless something unexpected happens and thus, it goes without saying that change is needed at the Theatre of Dreams.
Manchester United need to get their next manager right
Once one of the most consistent teams in all of Europe, Manchester United have struggled ever since the retirement of Sir Alex Ferguson in 2013.
David Moyes, Louis van Gaal, Jose Mourinho and Ole Gunnar Solskjaer have all served as permanent managers since then, but none of them have been able to get them back to anywhere near the heights that the club have been used to over the years.
And now, it is safe to say that a new permanent manager needs to be brought in next summer and given time to succeed. Several interesting names have been linked with the Old Trafford job in recent weeks and months. Let’s see who ultimately ends up in the hot seat.
