Rangnick has also spoken on the appointment. The former Schalke, Hoffenheim and RB Leipzig boss is focused on turning results around for United in the coming months.
The 63-year-old is also excited for the two years he will have at the club after managing the team.
“I am excited to be joining Manchester United and focused on making this a successful season for the club,” Rangnick said.
“The squad is full of talent and has a great balance of youth and experience. All my efforts for the next six months will be on helping these players fulfil their potential, both individually and, most importantly, as a team.
“Beyond that, I look forward to supporting the club’s longer-term goals on a consultancy basis.”
