Ralf Rangnick was appointed caretaker manager midway through the season and held the role for half a year. With that long period of time, he is expected to stabilize the team to help the next official MU coach have an easier job, in which Rangnick’s important task is to help the Red Devils finish in the top 4. However, this will not be an easy goal when Arsenal and Tottenham both hold a significant advantage over United in the race for fourth place. All Rangnick can do now is get things right on the training ground and on the pitch.
