[OPINION] Rangnick Should Build Manchester United Around Ronaldo

Ralf Rangnick will only be in charge of Manchester United's first team for six months, but he is so highly regarded that he will be given free reign in the January transfer window provided targets are met. Despite the fact that he will pass over the reins at the end of the season, United will back Rangnick if at all feasible.

The 63-year-old will remain at Old Trafford as a consultant for another two years, but he is such a respected figure in the contemporary game that his decision in January will be trusted to benefit the next man in charge. Although it doesn't take a genius to figure out what United's problems are right now. Every future manager's wish list will include a defensive midfielder, and if Rangnick can find an excellent player in that position who can play the high-energy pressing game he wants, that can only be good news.

Rangnick may have only had two managerial stints in the last decade, each lasting less than a century of games, but the godfather of against pressing has been concentrating his efforts at the executive level, and his method is as contemporary as it gets. United will be expected to attack vertically and quickly, with a concentration on gaining the ball back high up the pitch.

While Rangnick's strategy is founded on daring, even he is unlikely to call time on Cristiano Ronaldo's homecoming immediately. It was a brave decision by Michael Carrick to bench Ronaldo on Sunday, and the Portuguese veteran may not start every game under the interim manager, but his goal-scoring record is simply too brilliant and too consistent for him to be ignored.
