Manchester United coach Ralf Rangnick has been named new coach of Austria until 2024.
The 63-year-old German will take over at the end of May as preparations begin for the summer’s Nations League games against Croatia, Denmark and France.
The contract with Rangnik is for two years. If the Austrian national team makes it to the final stage of Euro 2024, the agreement will be automatically extended for two years – until the 2026 World Cup in the USA.
Ralf Rangnick on his appointment as the head coach of Austria,“I will take over as national team manager of Austria at the end of the season but will continue my consultancy with Manchester United,” Rangnick said.
“I’m really looking forward to playing my part in helping United become a real force again.
“It is an honour for me to take on the role of [Austria] manager,” he added.
Gerhard Milletich, President of the Austrian Football Association [ÖFB], said, “We are very pleased that in Ralf Rangnick we have been able to recruit an outstanding expert in international football as team manager. We are all convinced that he is the ideal man and that his vision will advance the national team and the ÖFB.”
This will be Rangnick’s first role in international management, although he was the director of football at Austrian champions Red Bull Salzburg between 2012 and 2015.
Ralf performed the equivalent role at RB Leipzig and was Lokomotiv Moscow’s manager of sports and development prior to joining United as interim manager in December 2021.
His managerial CV includes two spells each at Leipzig and Schalke, as well as Bundesliga experience with Hoffenheim, Hannover and Stuttgart.
