MANCHESTER UNITED interim manager Ralf Rangnick has hinted that an advisor role is NOT guaranteed under Erik ten Hag.
The 52-year-old received a three-year contract with an option for a further 12 months.
The Red Devils have struggled as gaffers under Rangnick’s stewardship and his recent comments cast doubt on that suggested plans to make him football director in the summer.
Rangnick gave a press conference on Friday ahead of Saturday’s game against rivals Arsenal.
Sky Sports The German reportedly said Old Trafford bosses couldn’t make minor changes and would need “open-heart surgery” to fix their problems.
He added: “We have an agreement on this advisory role, but at the end of the day it’s not about what’s on paper or what was agreed, it’s about what’s really going to happen on a day-to-day basis and in the day-to-day business.
“It is also important how Erik ten Hag sees it.
“Does he like talking to someone like me?
“How closely does he want to work together?
“And those are the things we haven’t talked about yet.”
Man Utd was one on the wrong end 4-0 beat against Liverpool earlier this week.
Rangnick addressed his team after the game and emphasized the distance between them and their opponents.
The 63-year-old said: “It’s embarrassing.
“It’s completely disappointing and humiliating.
“We just have to accept that they are six years ahead of us.”
