Manchester United have announced that Ralf Rangnick will not stay at the club in a consultancy position because of his commitment to coaching the Austria national team.
Rangnick, 63, took over as interim manager at United in November but was unable to rescue their season. They finished sixth, with their lowest points tally (58) in the Premier League era, and failed to qualify for next season’s Champions League.
A statement from the Premier League club said: “We would like to thank Ralf Rangnick for his efforts as interim manager over the past six months.
“By mutual agreement, Ralf will now focus solely on his new role as manager of the Austria national team and will not therefore be taking up a consultancy role at Old Trafford.
“We would like to wish Ralf the best of luck in this next chapter of his career.”
Rangnick was set to remain at United in a consultancy role to help new coach Erik ten Hag.
