Ex-Loko director Kirichek: Rangnick move to Man Utd suprising and strange

Former Lokomotiv Moscow director Alexei Kirichek is surprised by Manchester United's move for Ralf Rangnick.

Rangnick is set to leave his technical director's position at Loko to become caretaker manager of United.

Kiricheck said: “If this happens, it will be very interesting. A 63-year-old man, finished a big career, began to consult. And then you have to go to England. It is clear that Manchester is able to pay him as much as Lokomotiv put to Rangnik.

"Probably Manchester United didn't find anyone better, they decided to follow the path of Chelsea when they invited (Guus) Hiddink. During these six months they will not lose anything. And then they will choose a new coach or again agree with Ralf.

"However, I cannot imagine that Rangnik will also consult Loko. He won't be able to work on two fronts, it's strange. I will be very surprised if, after being appointed to England, Loko assures that Rangnick remains at the club. It is interesting to see if there is a penalty in Rangnick's contract with the Moscow club, as in the case of Nikolic's contract.

"The investments made with him were very serious."
