Manchester United football director reveals minimum requirement for next Manchester United boss

Ralf Rangnick was appointed as interim manager until the end of the season after Ole Gunnar Solskjaer was sacked in November with the Red Devils expected to appoint a permanent manager at the end of the season.

The Red Devils have been linked with several managers across but it is believed PSG boss Mauricio Pochettino and Ajax boss Erik ten Hag are the leading candidates for the Manchester United job.

Manchester United football director John Murtough says a “thorough process” is under way to find their next permanent manager and insists the objective for our permanent manager is to get the Red Devils challenging for trophies again.

“We know that consistency is key as we strive for a top-four finish this season,” Murtough said.

“I want to reiterate however that this is not the ultimate objective for Manchester United, and everyone at the club is focused on challenging for the top trophies.

“We are now conducting a thorough process for the appointment of a new permanent manager who will take charge this summer, with the objective to get us back to challenging for those domestic and European titles.”
