Ralf Rangnick’s first official game in charge at Manchester United will likely have to wait until Sunday, December 5.
According to Fabrizio Romano, a tier-one source, the German specialist is ‘unlikely’ to be in the Old Trafford dugout against Arsenal on Thursday.
The 63-year-old has been officially confirmed as Man United’s interim manager until the end of the 2021-22 season following the dismissal of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.
However, the work on Rangnick’s United Kingdom work visa is yet to be finalized. Michael Carrick will remain in charge against the Gunners with the German possibly making his debut vs Crystal Palace on Sunday.
Carrick, who was Solskjaer’s assistant has managed United’s last two games since the Norwegian’s sack, recording one win and one draw against Villarreal in the Champions League and Chelsea in the Premier League respectively.
