UNCOVERED: Monthly commitment of Rangnick Man Utd consultancy role

The consultancy role Ralf Rangnick will take on at Manchester United involves just a six day a month commitment.

The interim manager has agreed a two-year stay beyond this season and, although United have been tight-lipped on the details of his next role, Sportsmail has learned that it would constitute 144 days' work should Rangnick remain at Old Trafford until 2024, says the Daily Mail.

The 63-year-old has not been consulted in the club's hunt for a permanent boss, with Mauricio Pochettino and Ajax's Erik ten Hag the frontrunners for the job after talks.

Rangnick's part-time duties at United are likely to depend on which manager is appointed, but there is some mystery surrounding what will be expected of the German, with Darren Fletcher, John Murtough and Matt Judge heading up the various aspects of the club's football operations.

Rangnick has been forthright about where United need to strengthen if they are to bridge the gap to Manchester City and Liverpool, suggesting last week that a streamlined recruitment process is more important than the next head coach. He believes United have consistently signed players who are too similar.
