[OPINION] Rangnick's Football Philosophy Will Change Man United For The Good

On Wednesday, Ralf Rangnick arrived at Old Trafford for the first time in preparation for his new job as Manchester United manager. Rangnick, 63, was toured around the stadium by United's football director John Murtough, who knew him before to his hiring and was instrumental in his appointment as temporary manager. Rangnick had a look around the Old Trafford facilities before heading to the dugouts from the tunnel in the area near the Stretford End.

He stood pitchside with Murtough for some minutes before pausing to speak with former United defender Wes Brown, who was also inside Old Trafford. Rangnick was appointed by United on Monday, and the former Schalke and RB Leipzig manager will be in charge until the end of the season before moving on to a two-year consulting position. Rangnick, who has already arrived in Manchester, will be unable to take command of his first game on Thursday night when United hosts Arsenal at Old Trafford because his visa has not yet been accepted.

The work visa has been delayed because he does not fit the Football Association's automatic criterion, which means the procedure must be authorized by the Home Office. Rangnick has only had two coaching roles in the last decade and has overseen just over 80 games, which means he does not meet the FA's requirements.

United are hoping that the visa will be granted, allowing Rangnick to take command of the team when they face Crystal Palace on Sunday at Old Trafford. Because of the delay, Michael Carrick will be in control of the Arsenal game, and United acted fast to announce this, giving the caretaker manager and his side certainty ahead of a key match.
