Man Utd Double winner Kanchelskis: Carrick better option than Rangnick

Manchester United Double winner Andrei Kanchelskis has questioned their move for Ralf Rangnick.

Kanchelskis says United should have left Michael Carrick in control of the club until the end of the season.

Speaking to BettingExpert, he said: "I know Rangnick has built a good reputation through his career – he has been an inspiration to the likes of [Jurgen] Klopp, [Thomas] Tuchel and [Julian] Nagelsmann with his pressing style of play.

"The impressive reputation he has in Germany has seemingly led the United board to consider his appointment, in many ways if it transpires then it appears a logical appointment – a step for stability.

"Here in Russia, at Lokomotiv Moscow, he has not done a huge amount to change their current situation in his role as director of football – which I'd describe as a little complex to say the least.

"They need to look at a different approach to have some success. We haven't seen a huge impact in the six months he's had but he's not been here a long time in the role.

"It's hard to make such an impact in that time.

"I did feel Carrick should have stayed in the role until the end of the season, but it seems like that is not to be and hopefully this is the start of a return to form for the team and an upcoming period of stability."
