Ex-Man United Manager Rejects Bayern’s Coaching Job

Ex-Man United Manager Rejects Bayern’s Coaching Job

Former Manchester United manager Ralf Rangnick has turned down the opportunity to succeed Thomas Tuchel at Bayern Munich

Rangnick, who will guide Austria at this summer’s European Championship in Germany, had been heavily linked with the coaching job at Bayern.

“I am the Austrian team boss with all my heart,” Rangnick said in a statement, via ESPN, on Thursday.

“I really enjoy this task and am determined to successfully continue on our chosen path.

“I would like to expressly emphasize that this is not a rejection of FC Bayern, but rather a decision for my team and our common goals. Our full concentration is on the European Championships. We will do everything we can to get as far as possible!”

Rangnick confirmed on April 24 that he had been approached by Bayern over their soon-to-be vacant manager role, but added he was not sure if he would take up the opportunity.

The 65-year-old took over as Austria head coach in April 2022 following a disappointing spell in charge at United in which they finished sixth in the Premier League with a club record-low 58 points.
