But Rangnik has been tempted by the chance to succeed Franco Foder as Austria boss and could sever ties with United at the end of the season.
The Austrian FA denied Ranganik’s offer to meet with their sporting director Peter Scottel in Manchester earlier this month, but FA President Gerhard Miletic is expected to announce a new coach in Vienna on Friday and there is growing speculation that the former Schalke and Arabic Leipzig boss. Can get a job.
Manchester United manager: Ralph Rangnik could take charge of the Austrian team
The role of Rangnik’s advice has been somewhat unclear since the locomotive joined United from Moscow in December as a temporary replacement for Ole Gunnar Solskazar. It was thought he could step into a senior role and even make a keynote speech on the new manager’s choice, but Rangnik admitted he had not spoken to Eric Ten Hague.
In fact, the terms of his contract with United for the next two years involve working only six days a month.
Nonetheless, it would be a shock if he left to coach Austria on Friday, saying he wanted to be part of the United set-up after the arrival of Ten Hague.
‘Of course, I want to be part of the process that has to happen,’ Rangnik said. ‘But at the moment, I don’t know how it’s really being appreciated.
“It simply came to our notice then. Does he like to talk to someone like me? Does he want to work together?
‘How much does Eric Ten Hague and the board want my opinion and my experience? That’s what we didn’t talk about.
‘I’m interested and feeling this club after five and a half months. It is one of the biggest clubs in the world.
