Man Utd hero Kanchelskis: Loko will be happy Rangnick leaving

Manchester United Double winner Andrei Kanchelskis believes Ralf Rangnick's departure from Lokomotiv Moscow can be good be all involved.

Rangnick is set to leave his role as Loko technical director to become caretaker manager at United.

Kanchelskis said: “If Ralf is invited, then in England he is known and followed by his activities. This is a great challenge. Who would refuse to go to United to work? Everyone would leave. We must wish Rangnik good luck.

"Negativeness about Rangnick? There is a lot of negativity towards foreigners in Russia. Let's remember Spartak is the same. Let's face it, foreigners don't succeed in Russia, but they do well in Europe. We have our own mentality, they cannot adapt to our lifestyle."
