Who Is Ralf Rangnick & What Can We Expect?

It´s been a while, but PodSaveTheBall is back! Ralf Rangnick has been appointed interim manager for Manchester United in an effort to rebuild and steer the club in a new direction. In this chat with my son Markus as the designated interviewer, we attempt to address some of the biggest questions tied to this spectacular appointment. Who is Ralf Rangnick, and why is he held in such high regard in Germany and by the likes of Klopp, Tuchel and Hasenhuttl? What does it say about the direction Manchester United is going in: is Pochettino less likely? What will their transfer policy look like? What will happen to Ronaldo? And will he take the job permanently if given the chance?
