If the success of Jurgen Klopp and Thomas Tuchel in the Premier League with Liverpool and Chelsea respectively are anything to go by, then Manchester United wanting a German manager is certainly a good omen.

Ralf Rangnick is highly revered in Germany as the man who inspired the current generation of German managers including Thomas Tuchel and Jürgen Klopp who have revolutionised his famous gegenpressing and added a few elements of their own tactics to it.

Asides his brilliant tactical skills, Ralf Rangnick is a good sporting director and is responsible for the quick rise of RB Leipzig, a club founded in 2009 from fifth tier of German football to Champions League level in a few years.

The current crop of Manchester United players will certainly be a good fit for Rangnick's system with players like Jadon Sancho, Mason Greenwood and Donny Van de Beek set to benefit heavily if he is appointed.
