‘I’ve never heard anything so stupid in my life’ – Harry Redknapp slams Man Utd decision

Harry Redknapp has slammed Manchester United’s decision to overlook Michael Carrick and appoint an interim manager.

Carrick is currently gearing up for his second match in charge against Chelsea this evening having taking over on a caretaker basis following Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s sacking.

But the former Red Devils midfielder is set to hand over the reins once United finalise an agreement for former RB Leipzig boss Ralf Rangnick.

The German has reportedly agreed to take charge on an interim basis until the end of the season before moving into a consultancy role at the club.

United would then have a greater chance in prising the likes of Mauricio Pochettino or Brendan Rodgers away from their respective clubs.

But Redknapp feels it’s a ‘ridiculous’ decision United are making in opting to seemingly write off the season with an interim appointment.

‘Michael Carrick is one of the most intelligent footballers I know, so really didn’t need telling he wasn’t going to be Manchester United’s next manager,’ Redknapp told The Sun.

‘But the fact United have brought in Ralf Rangnick as an interim to replace the interim, before they get the man they really want, is ridiculous.

‘I’ve never heard anything so stupid in my life, whichever way you look at it.

‘And then we hear that if Rangnick wins the Champions League, he could end up staying as manager after all, rather than a couple of years as a consultant, director or whatever.

‘So the interim manager could become the full-time manager, which means the manager they want full-time now might not be the one they want full-time in six months.

‘If you’re not confused by all that, I certainly am! And we’re talking one of the biggest clubs in the world here. It’s crazy.’
