Ralf Rangnick has declined to participate in reports that Manchester United have appointed Erik ten Hag as manager.
United are reportedly close to completing the appointment of their new manager, with Ajax boss Ten Hag expected to be the club’s chosen nominee.
Sources from Ajax and the Dutchman’s camp told Sky Sports News that after he was impressed during his interview, discussions took place over how to handle payment and an official announcement.
United denied any official talks, calling it “premature” to read such an advanced reading of the situation, and interim boss Rangnick declined to comment on news about his possible successor.
Speaking before Saturday’s game against Everton, Rangnick said on Friday: “Tomorrow’s game press conference. I don’t intend to talk about possible new managers.
“As far as I know, all the managers the club has spoken to so far are top executives, top coaches. If that includes Erik ten Hag, that goes for him too.
“That’s all I can say at this point. All I can do is prepare the team for tomorrow’s game and hope for three points.”
