West Ham United manager David Moyes has backed Manchester United’s appointment of Ralf Rangnick and believes the club is getting one of Europe’s most highly regarded managers.
Reports confirmed the club are on the verge of hiring the German, who will first take charge of the team as interim manager on a six-month deal before moving to a two-year consultancy role next summer.
Rangnick, who previously managed Schalke, Hoffenheim and RB Leipzig, has been credited with having a major influence on Premier League managers Jurgen Klopp and Thomas Tuchel.
Former Red Devils Boss Moyes has claimed the decision to appoint Rangnick is ‘interesting’.
“[He is] a very experienced manager, very well thought of throughout the coaching world so that will be interesting for Manchester United,” said Moyes.
“He is someone who is incredibly well thought of throughout Europe and now we have a chance to see him in the Premier League.”
