Listen to ten Hag's response when he was asked about Rangnick in his press conference. I think he has his own vision and isn't really that interested in hearing Rangnick's thoughts moving forward so the club probably thought it was pointless keeping him around.
Another weird decision by the club that was.
The club needs to focus on making good decisions, that should be the prime goal at the moment, just making good decisions.
We haven’t had made many of them since 2013 if at all.
Ten Hag is finally here so I wouldn’t really worry too much about it. Besides Ralf would already have communicated everything there is needed to Ten Hag of what to expect and his experience during his six months here
Optically it’s for the best. National team manager acting as a consultant is almost as stupid as Ralf getting instructions over the phone from his pal in Moscow. Next up is hopefully no more technical director Fletcher on the bench.
Best of luck to him... But this is disappointing. His tenure as manager was awful, but I was fully expecting that his first-hand experience with the squad would enable him to do this consultancy role more effectively (and definitely more effectively than anyone who would be replacing him now if the club are to do so).
Fingers crossed it doesn't have a big impact, but I fear it will do.
So we chose Rangnick over Conte because of the German ability to build sides as DOF long only to let Rangnick go after few months. Sweet. I am sure its Woodward's fault. Murtough and Fletcher are flawless
United needed an interim coach to fill in after Ole was sacked. The consultancy role was only added to the contract on Rangnick's own insistence.
I'm guessing the consultancy isn't needed any more since the entire hierarchy from chairman to scouts to manager to coaching staff to the playing squad is being completely rejigged. Rangnick's info will be out-of-date the moment he leaves his position. There won't be much left he can consult on.
