Manchester United will not be rushed into making a decision about their next permanent manager, director John Murtough has said. He recently revealed this via a press statement, and fans have been reacting.
According to him, MUFC will take their time with such a decision and Rangnick has already recommended that he could stay for one more year if the right candidate is not available in the summer.
John added that the club didn’t approach other managers before Ole left the club, out of respect for him.
His words, “Out of respect for Ole, we did not approach other managers before he left,”
“Our plan then was to appoint an experienced interim manager and Ralf was our clear first choice.”
“He’s someone I have admired for a long time, and we’re delighted he’s here. By bringing in Ralf, we can now take time to run a thorough process for our next permanent manager.”
“Recruiting a manager is one of the most important decisions a football club makes so we want to do it in a careful and considered fashion.”
On Ole, “There were grounds for confidence that we were going to continue building on the progress we saw in the prior two seasons,”
“After the promising early-season results, things went off plan.”
“As a club, we felt Ole had earned the right to be given the chance to turn things round, but didn’t get a reaction after the international break, and the Watford game made it clear change was needed.”
“We’re all disappointed at Ole’s departure, but he deserves to be judged on his record over the past three years, not his last few weeks. He re-set the club’s culture and reshaped the squad, leaving us in a stronger position today than when he returned in 2018.”
