Short, compact, clear

Alaba is full of praise: “He’s really good. You can see that we have a good plan and you can see that it works on the pitch,” said Alaba about the new ÖFB coach, who started his new job with a 3-0 win in Croatia and a 1-2 win against Denmark The Austrian says of Rangnick’s work at ManUnited: “He didn’t have enough time in Manchester.”

Mixed ManUnited record: Rangnick (63) took over as coach at Manchester United on December 3, 2021 and was supposed to act as an advisor for the “Red Devils” after the end of the season. After a disappointing record of only eleven wins from 29 games and missing out on the Champions League qualification, he didn’t play and went to the ÖFB.
