Not yet! Rangnick arrival at Man Utd facing delay

Manchester United manager Ralf Rangnick's arrival is facing a delay this week.

The Daily Mail says United fear new boss Rangnick won't be in the dugout for Thursday's home clash with Arsenal, and are scrambling to have him in place against Crystal Palace three days later.

Rangnick's appointment until the end of the season was confirmed on Monday but immediately there were concerns that he would be prevented from starting the job by work-permit red tape and the UK government's quarantine laws.

Club staff were told at Carrington on Monday that Rangnick is unlikely to be in charge until the end of the week, while the 63-year-old German waits for his permit to be approved.

United remain hopeful Rangnick will take over in time for Palace's visit on Sunday and a club spokesman said last night: "We are working calmly and carefully to secure a visa for Ralf in line with all relevant regulations and protocols. These are processes which have to be followed and we are doing so as swiftly as possible."

Caretaker boss Michael Carrick will remain in charge until Rangnick's arrival after overseeing a Champions League win over Villarreal and a draw at Premier League leaders Chelsea.
