Ralf Rangnick appointed as manager Man Utd

German coach Ralf Rangnick was hired Monday as Manchester United manager until the end of the season.

The arrival of Rangnick, a pioneer of the high-intensity pressing game developed in Germany and increasingly dominant in world soccer over the last decade, should shake up the playing style of United as the team looks to rescue its season.

United is in eighth place in the Premier League, 12 points off leader Chelsea after 13 games.

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