Gary Neville claims Ralf Rangnick ‘WON’T’ get the Manchester United job but ‘will have a say’… as he says the club needs a great manager to take on Pep Guardiola, Jurgen Klopp or Thomas Tuchel or they’ll get ‘beat up’

  • Gary Neville believes Ralf Rangnick won’t get the permanent role at Old Trafford
  • He believes Rangnick will have a say on the next manager at Manchester United
  • Mauricio Pochettino and Erik ten Hag have been linked with the permanent role  
  • Neville has also spoken of the importance in getting their next manager right
  • He has urged them to get a manager to match Man City, Liverpool and Chelsea 


Gary Neville believes Ralf Rangnick won’t get the Manchester United job but will have a say on who takes on the role permanently this summer.

The 63-year-old replaced Ole Gunnar Solskjaer on an interim basis back in November until the end of the season, before he’ll take up a consultancy role until 2024. 

Neville doesn’t believe Rangnick has done well enough to change opinion and get the role permanently, but does feel he have a big part to play in choosing his replacement.

He said on the Gary Neville Podcast: ‘I don’t think he gets the job at the end of the season come what may now (Rangnick). That isn’t going to happen Manchester United will get a new manager next season. 

‘I think he will (have a say on who next manager will be) because what he’s got is a real good view  because what he has got is a real good view of the characters, personalities, performance levels and training levels of the current group of players so he is in a strong position to advise. 

‘He is probably in the strongest position to advise because he is having day-to-day contact with them. He is seeing how they cope with disappointment, how they cope with atmospheres, how they cope with big games, how they cope with training; can they meet the demands of the club? Have they got the quality?’

‘People say he is a sporting director and a coach, but the reality is that his position as a coach is short-term; his position as assisting the club, constructing their new methodology and structure moving forward is a longer term position for two years.

‘I’d rather him get that bit right; I’d rather suffer in the short-term for the longer-term perspective being right. He has got good experience around building structures in football clubs and Manchester United do need that.’

Manchester United have been linked with a host of names for the permanent job including PSG boss Mauricio Pochettino and Erik ten Hag of Ajax.

Neville says United need a boss that matches the quality of Manchester City, Liverpool and Chelsea – otherwise, they’ll get ‘beat-up’. 

He said: ‘In the summer, they have got big appointments to make, namely the manager. 

‘The manager has got to be right next season to be able to take on (Thomas) Tuchel, (Pep) Guardiola and (Jurgen) Klopp because if you don’t take on those three with a manager who can face them like-for-like, you will get beat up. 

‘It has been proven over the last few years that great managers in this league will bring you great things; Manchester United need a great manager to compete with the ones that are at that level in this league at this moment in time.
