Liverpool legend Graeme Souness has slammed Manchester United’s decision to appoint Ralf Rangnick as interim manager and claimed German is not the right manager for the club.

“I don’t get it, the man’s CV… you wouldn’t go wild it doesn’t jump out at you, he’s not been super successful,” Souness told TalkSPORT.

“He’s won just one trophy. His talent would appear to go into a football club and develope the structure for it to develope and improve over a five-to-ten year period. That’s not what Manchester United need right now, Manchester need it instantly – they need someone to make an impact now.

“There’s a healthy group of players there now there’s no doubt about it the previous manager Ole didn’t get the best out of them, they’ve got more to give. That’s what you’re judged on.

“Right now Man Utd have an under-performing group of players. Will this guy who has never been in the English Premier League be able to do that? I don’t think so.

“I don’t get this appointment on any level. He’s going to take a consultancy role? Nice pension for him! He’s 63-years-old, lovely job if you can get that sort of work. But I just don’t get this appointment.”
