Ralf Rangnick "doesn’t care about football" and only moved to Russia "for money"

Expected Manchester United boss Ralf Rangnick "doesn't care about football" and is driven by money, according to a former president at Lokomotiv Moscow.

Rangnick is on the verge of completing a move to United that will see him manage the side until the end of the season, which will end his term in Moscow as sporting director.

The 63-year-old is highly respected, and is renowned for revolutionising modern German tactics, founding gegenpressing and inspiring a wave of managers from his homeland.

However, despite all of the praise that Rangnick gets, the German has been at the centre of a scathing rant issued by a former Lokomotiv president.

Despite only arriving at Lokomotiv in July, Rangnick appears to be on his way out already, which has led to a furious outburst from the clubs former president, Nikolai Naumov, who has claimed that his departure is purely driven by money.

Naumov told MatchTV: "It's not about Manchester. For Rangnick, this is no escape, betrayal, or disgrace. Rangnick is a merchant.

"He absolutely does not care about football, because he only does business around him. And the more countries, leagues and football clubs he covers, the more he will earn.

Will Ralf Rangnick bring success to Manchester United this season? Let us know your thoughts in the comments section below.

"He's absolutely indifferent to Lokomotiv. He did not come here to raise football, but to earn money.

"Now he was offered money elsewhere, and he and his company will go to United. When he's offered to work in Africa, he will go to earn money there, leaving his deputy at Manchester United. Clean business."

Rangnick is only expected to sign a six-month deal before taking on a senior role at United, but Naumov's comments won't worry the fans too much, with overwhelming respect already issued by fellow German Jurgen Klopp ahead of his arrival.
