Manchester United finished sixth in the Premier League this season, with a goal difference of zero

Ralf Rangnick, the former interim manager, will not start his two-year advisory role at Manchester United.

Instead, the 63-year-old German is focusing on his new job as the person in charge of Austria.

The chancellor role was agreed upon as part of Rangnick’s arrival at Old Trafford in December. He was replaced by Erich Ten Hag at the end of the season.

When asked about Rangnick’s potential contribution this week, Ten Hag said the decision is up to United.

Rangnick confirmed the news when he was appointed as Austria’s coach on Sunday.

A United statement read: “Ralph will now, by mutual agreement, focus solely on his new role as Austrian manager, and therefore will not take up an advisory role at Old Trafford.”

Rangnick was appointed by United until the end of the season, and took over after the sacking of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.

United have won just 38% of their games under Rangnick, the worst win rate of any manager in the Premier League and the club’s worst win rate in 50 years.

With sixth place in the table, they qualified for the European League.
