Klopp comments on 'Rangnick to Man Utd'

World News

With Ralf Rangnick reportedly set to be appointed as Manchester United's new interim manager, Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp has weighed in on his compatriot's potential arrival in England's top flight. 

It is believed the Red Devils will soon announce the short-term appointment of Rangnick about a week after the club parted ways with Norwegian tactician Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.

In a pre-match press conference on Friday, Reds head coach Klopp welcomed United's reported decision to hire Rangnick, but also said the 63-year-old's potential arrival in the Premier League is "not good news" for other clubs. 

"Yeah, unfortunately, a good coach is coming to England so that's how it is, to Manchester United," Klopp said, per the Daily Mail. 

"Ralf is obviously a very experienced manager, built two clubs from nowhere to proper threats and proper forces in Germany in Hoffenheim and Leipzig. 

"Been to a lot of different jobs in football but always first concern actually was being a coach, being a manager, and that's what his best skill is.

"United will be organised on the pitch, I think we should realise that, and obviously not good news for other teams. 

"But all the coaches in the world need time to train with our teams and Ralf will quickly realise he has no time to train as they play all the time, but other than that he is a really good man and outstanding coach if it happens he will come to England."
