Obviously, Erik ten Hag is one of the best coaches in Europe, but there are few others, says Ralf Rangnick

Manchester United caretaker manager Ralf Rangnick praised Erik ten Hag and admitted the Ajax manager was one of the best managers in the world, but also added that he there were others. The Ajax head coach has been heavily linked as United’s next permanent manager alongside a few others.

Since Ole Gunnar Solskjaer was sacked, Manchester United searched for his replacement although so far the club have yet to name a permanent option. Instead, the Red Devils handed Ralf Rangnick the reins for the remainder of the 2021/22 term, albeit only on an interim basis. The German has, however, improved the team and he has seen United back in contention for a top-four spot, but there are still questions over their next permanent manager.

Among the reported replacements, Erik ten Hag is believed to top the shortlist alongside Mauricio Pochettino with the Ajax coach keen for a new challenge. However, although nothing has been confirmed yet, Ralf Rangnick has praised Ten Hag and admitted he considers the Ajax manager ‘one of the best managers in Europe’. Not only that, the German added that there are a few other top managers in the world but revealed that no talks have yet taken place over a new manager.

“I don’t know him initially as a person, but I’ve seen how Ajax have developed since he’s been there. I know the work he did while he was at Bayern Munich and obviously he is one of the best managers in Europe, but there are a few others. We haven’t talked about a new manager so far and so we haven’t talked about him,” Rangnick said, Goal reported.

“So far we haven’t talked about it. Not with [football director] John Murtough or anybody else, we haven’t talked about this in the last weeks and months since I’ve been here. I know my opinion, but so far we haven’t talked about it, so that’s all I can tell you.”
