Ralf Rangnick watches Man Utd from Old Trafford stands and runs rule over squad

New Manchester United boss Ralf Rangnick has been spotted at the crowd at Old Trafford before he takes charge of United.

Rangnick was sat at the back directors box, alongside United's Technical Director John Murtough.

The Red Devils have turned to the German to guide the team forwards on an interim basis.

Michael Carrick was once again in the Red Devils dugout for their Premier League fixture against Arsenal on Thursday evening.

Rangnick, 63, was unable to manage the side due to waiting for his work visa, which he was granted on Thursday morning.

However, Rangnick has been in the UK for a couple of days already, and he was snapped receiving a guided tour of Old Trafford on Wednesday.

Rangnick, after being appointed, said: "I am excited to be joining Manchester United and focused on making this a successful season for the club.

“The squad is full of talent and has a great balance of youth and experience.

"All my efforts for the next six months will be on helping these players fulfil their potential, both individually and, most importantly, as a team.

"Beyond that, I look forward to supporting the club’s longer-term goals on a consultancy basis."

Rangnick has joined United after a period in Russia as the Director of Football for Lokomotiv Moscow.

However, he is best known for his exploits under the Red Bull footballing umbrella.

Rangnick altered the course of RB Leipzig and Red Bull Salzburg by changing their emphasis to youth development, and it has reaped its rewards.

Salzburg became the third side to win the UEFA Youth League, while Leipzig managed to reach the semi-finals of the Champions League a couple of seasons ago.
