Jamie Carragher says it’s complete ‘nonsense’ that Ralf Rangnick will be working ‘part-time’ at Manchester United.

The German’s spell in charge of the club on an interim basis comes to an end later this month when Erik ten Hag arrives and Rangnick moves into a consultancy role at the club.

However, last week it was announced Rangnick will take charge of the Austria men’s national team on a full-time basis despite still working in a consultancy role at United.

Liverpool legend Carragher can’t see how that’s been allowed to happen though.

‘Ralf Rangnick isn’t really a manager, he’s a director of football, he’s someone who helps the coaches or builds the club,’ Carragher said on Sky Sports.

‘I’ll be honest with you I just don’t get that. I don’t think you can be manager of Austria and work for Manchester United.

‘He can work for Manchester United in that role…well that’s wrong. That should not be happening.

‘The manager of Austria should not be working part time for Manchester United. That’s just a nonsense! It’s one or the other.’

Rangnick’s final home game in charge of United ended in a 3-0 win over Brentford courtesy of goals from Bruno Fernandes, Cristiano Ronaldo and Raphael Varane.

A poor end to the season has seen them fall short in their quest for a Champions League spot but they now look set to qualify for the Europa League with a top-six finish.

Asked to assess his time in charge of the Red Devils, Rangnick said: ‘In the end I’m not happy with the results [overall], especially in the last four or five weeks.

‘Until the West Ham game we were still in the race in three competitions.

‘We had good moments until that West Ham game, we conceded fewer goals but in the last few weeks performances have not been as good as they should have been. In general we have lacked consistency.’
