Ralf Rangnick wants Manchester United to be ‘pressing monsters’ – .

Rangnick has hinted he could recommend himself for the permanent position if this season goes well and is ready to put down roots in Manchester with his search for a new home, over Mourinho’s decision to stay to The Lowry which sparked accusations of lack of engagement.

Also in Rangnick’s ferry is a lunch with Sir Alex Ferguson, who was quarantined after a trip to America. The couple met after United defeated Schalke in 2011 and then later at an awards ceremony in Germany four years later.

“I wanted to meet him but he didn’t come back from New York until Thursday and had to stay home,” Rangnick said. “But I’m really looking forward to meeting him over the next two or three weeks. Darren Fletcher told me he wanted to have a joint lunch or dinner with him.

“The important thing is to celebrate the DNA that this club still has, but also to implement it in the transformation towards modern football. “

Jadon Sancho is expected to be one of the beneficiaries of Rangnick’s appointment. The German tried to sign Sancho while at RB Leipzig before the England striker moved to Borussia Dortmund. Rangnick has built a reputation for developing youth rather than spending over the course of his career.

“The team has, with Mason and Marcus, two local players and from the youth ranks,” he said. “Jadon whom I met when he was 17 in London, trying to convince him to come to Leipzig – and yet he decided to go to Dortmund,” Rangnick said.

“It’s about recruiting, but also at a club like Man United, with a great academy, we have to make sure that every year we have one or two players who are good enough to make the first team. “

Rangnick appeared cautious as he prepared for the season, starting with Sunday’s game against Palace.

“I’m more than an optimist, but I also have to be realistic,” he said. “Five weeks ago our team lost 5-0 to Liverpool – and it could have been a lot more if we were honest. Against City it was 2-0 – but it could also have been more.

“It was important to gain the point at Chelsea, but the performance? I do not know. They had 24 shots on goal and we had three. So, at the moment, to say that I will challenge the best managers in the Premier League in the weeks or months to come is unrealistic. ”
