23 Mar 2022 | 10:22 | Football

 Let’s update the happenings surrounding the selection of the official Manchester United captain.

Rangnick talks about losing to Atletico 

The Telegraph’s James Ducker confirmed that coach Erik ten Hag underwent an interview with Manchester United on Monday for the job at Old Trafford. Although Ten Hag is considered the best candidate for the position of successor to coach Ralf Rangnick, in fact, the Red Devils are also interviewing the remaining 3 candidates on the short list, including coach Mauricio Pochettino, coach. Luis Enrique and coach Julen Lopetegui.

As for coach Thomas Tuchel, in fact, Man Utd has long paid special attention to the German strategist. However, they have little expectation that Tuchel can become a viable option, despite the severe crisis at Stamford Bridge. In a recent press conference, Tuchel himself confirmed that he would continue to stick with The Blues.

Tuchel is unlikely to take over Man Utd. 

The search for the next official Man Utd captain is being carried out by Director of Football John Murtough and Technical Director Darren Fletcher. Earlier this month, the initial screening process was basically completed, and now they are working with a third party and assessing the level of interest for each shortlisted candidate.

In the past, Man Utd did not conduct a thorough review process before selecting coach Ole Gunnar Solskjaer for the position of coach Jose Mourinho’s successor. At the present time, a clear difference has appeared when they are working in the right process, conducting formal interviews with each candidate. It can be said that this is the impact of changes in the upper echelons, including the appointment of new Directors and a new CEO.

Man Utd is no longer subjective as before.

Back to Ten Hag, he was also interviewed for a job at Tottenham Hotspur before, but in the end, the London team decided to appoint coach Nuno Espírito Santo. However, with the process of reviving Ajax into a real force in Europe, the Dutch strategist is still admired by many senior figures at Old Trafford. Meanwhile, Dutch media are predicting Ten Hag will leave Ajax this summer, regardless of whether he is appointed by Man Utd or not.

The current contract between Ten Hag and Ajax has about 15 months remaining, meaning that Man United may have to pay a compensation fee of £ 4.2 million. It is known that the Old Trafford team wants to appoint an official captain right after the end of the last match of this season.
