Man Utd news: Ralf Rangnick promises to help 'change everything for the better' in new role

German believes he still has big role to play despite Erik Ten Hag replacing him as Manchester United boss.

Ralf Rangnick has confirmed he will remain at Manchester United in a consultancy role next season and plans to help Erik ten Hag to 'change everything'.

Rangnick has struggled in his initial remit as Man Utd head coach and Ajax boss ten Hag has been appointed to take the reigns this summer.

That will see Rangnick revert to a pre-planned consultancy role, and he is confident he can help the club get back to their former glories.

"Yes I will be (here next season)," he said. "I'm looking forward to working in that advisory role and obviously help Erik as much as he wants it himself.

"So far we haven't been able to speak with each other and we have had no contact - he has his focus on Ajax, I have my focus on Manchester United here.

"But obviously I'm more than willing and prepared to help both Erik and whomever in the club in order to change everything for the better."

Having chased Champions League football all season but are now sure to miss out, leaving the Europa League or Europa Conference League their only remaining hopes of European football next season.

That has led some fans to suggest missing out completely may be better as it gives them more breathing room and fewer games to affect their rebuild, similar to what Arsenal have done.

Rangnick, though, says his players cannot consider losing games by design and he won't allow it.

"It could be an advantage (missing out on European football) but that does not mean that we will give away any of the remaining four games," he said.

"For us it's clear and this is our obligation, this is our job, my job, the job of the players that we try to get the best possible results and then we will see at the end of the season in which position we will finish.

"But now to speak about 'would it be an advantage or not?' doesn't make sense because if I did that then this would be interpreted again.

"For me, it's important that we get results, that we play as good as we possibly can because this will also affect the atmosphere and mood for the new season."
