Manchester United have held an initial meeting between key figures as the club plan their path to improvement under Ralf Rangnick’s guidance, AfroGazette understands.
The interim manager is due to take up a consultancy role within the club in the summer, with talent appraisal and identification both understood to be key aspects of his role. Until then, he is responsible for the uplift on the pitch this season following Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s dismissal earlier this season – though results have been mixed so far.

Rangnick’s thoughts may be key to the direction United go in.
