That's a bit out of the blue, isn't it? Or was I just not aware of rumours about him?

Really? Wow. Read that he’s a control freak.

what does a 2 yr consultant mean? We won’t listen and keep you on retainer but out of our sights if need be?

Looks like finally the club is starting to plan in a right way. Rangnick now then he becomes a consultant next 2 years with us appointing Ten Hag hopefully.

Wow, brilliant news. We retain his services after 6 months too.

Why is he rated so much, can someone explain?
He's basically considered to be the grandfather of the modern German coaches like Klopp or Nagelsmann. One of the pioneering advocates of high pressing as used today in football.

I know absolutely nothing about him. Has he not managed since 2019?

Wow! This is genuinely massive if true, did not expect the club to actually make a proper footballing decision like this :eek:

We’re going for Ten Hag. 100%.


No way we would commit to this if we were waiting on Poch

Best choice by far. This season is a write off.

Gives us much more options in the long term. We ain't getting Poch till Jan or Ten Hag till June.

Also Nagelsmann could be an option. Who knows if he last the full season with Bayern.

I refuse to believe this because surely our board cannot be sane and competent enough to sign him.

Unless i see him in the dugout at OT I'm not buying it.
