Incoming Manchester United manager, Ralf Rangnick, has requested to speak to Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s old coaching staff, Michael Carrick and Kieran McKenna, before deciding the make-up of his Red Devils coaching staff.
According to The Athletic, Rangnick will meet with Carrick and McKenna in the coming days as he has already requested at least one new coach to add to his coaching staff.
The report added that the 63-year-old would also be allowed to bring in two of his trusted assistants, with Lars Kornetka – who worked with him at Hoffenheim, Schalke and RB Leipzig – set to join his long-time friend at Old Trafford as his right-hand man.
Rangnick is on the verge of becoming Man United’s interim manager until the end of the current season.
The former RB Leipzig manager has reached an agreement with Man United on a six-month contract and will then take up a two-year consultancy role.
The German has a history of developing coaches and Man United feel they have already invested a lot of time, resources and money into Carrick and McKenna and do not want to see that go to waste, with the pair potentially even joining the permanent manager’s staff next summer.

World Cup: De Bruyne, Hazard Clash In Dressing Room After Shock Morocco Defeat
A number of Belgium players were involved in a dressing bust-up after their shock 2-0 defeat to Morocco at the 2022 World Cup.
According to RTL Sport, Kevin de Bruyne, Jan Vertonghen, and captain Eden Hazard clashed after the match.
Tensions were already high after De Bruyne told reporters before the game that the team was “probably too old” to win the trophy.
Those tensions now appear to have reached boiling point, as the three players let their tempers erupt following the loss.
It is understood that De Bruyne, Hazard and Vertonghen had to be separated by Chelsea striker, Romelu Lukaku.
The emotionally-charged changing room could prove disastrous ahead of their final group stage fixture against Croatia.

World Cup: Benzema To Return To France Squad
Karim Benzema could make a surprising return to the France squad at the 2022 World Cup.
The 34-year-old had initially been ruled out through injury.
Benzema was expected to miss the entire tournament with a thigh problem.
France head coach, Didier Deschamps, opted not to call up a replacement and has continued with Kylian Mbappe, Olivier Giroud, Ousmane Dembele, Antoine Griezmann, Kingsley Coman and Marcus Thuram.
However, RMC Sport claims that Benzema could still return to the France setup as he returns to full training this week at Real Madrid.
Benzema could be fit enough to take part in the knockout stages of the World Cup.
FIFA rules permit players to return to their squads if they recover from injury if they had initially been named in the tournament squad before being ruled out.Follow Us On Social Media 👇
