The experienced and well-traveled German took the helm at Old Trafford last week, replacing Ole Gunnar Solskjaer on a contract until the end of the season.
Rangnick, who made a successful start to his career as a manager, overseeing a 1-0 win over Crystal Palace on Sunday afternoon, made the jump to the dugout after a two-year absence from coaching.
He left German giant RB Leipzig in 2019 and joined Russian giant Lokomotiv Moscow in July as head of sports and development, performing similar roles to those he held both in Leipzig and at Red Bull. Salzburg.
As well as previously being in charge of Leipzig, Rangnick has also held managerial positions at Schalke and Hannover 96, meaning he has been in charge of some of Germany’s biggest clubs.
Despite this, Hargreaves believes the current United squad will be the best he has ever worked with, while also emphasizing how he could have a big impact on the club’s young players.
“It’s one of the biggest and best teams in Europe,” Hargreaves told BT Sport. “Rangnick has been the manager for 600 games, but it will be the best team he has ever managed.
“Look at how deep he has and which players he has to choose from. He’s the best with young players and that’s a huge opportunity for these young players. “
For tonight’s UEFA Champions League clash with Young Boys, Rangnick has made the decision to make 11 changes to the squad that beat Palace three days ago, giving Amad and Anthony Elanga a start, as well. than to fill its bench of substitutes with young people.
For his former United colleague Rio Ferdinand, Rangnick’s background in youth development could be of great help to the youngsters of the Reds, who are looking to become household names at Old Trafford in the years to come.
Ferdinand said: “It’s audition time for these young players. It’s great to see, but again following the traditions of yesteryear.
“But like I said, he has a very good history of breeding and improving players. This is what you want.
“It doesn’t matter what you spend on the players, they need to be improved. He is someone who is used to doing that. “
