Why I’ll not speak with Jurgen Klopp, Thomas Tuchel – Ralf Rangnick

 Manchester United boss, Ralf Rangnick has said that there is no need speaking with Liverpool and Chelsea managers about life in England.

Rangnick said he hasn’t and is not looking forward to reaching out to Klopp and Tuchel for advice because they are ‘busy enough’ in their own jobs and he already got experience of living in England.

Rangnick was given his work permit on Wednesday and he watched from the stands as his new club defeated Arsenal 3-2 at Old Trafford on Thursday.

He is now set to oversee United’s next game which comes up on Sunday against Patrick Vieira’s Crystal Palace.

The 63-year-old, nicknamed the ‘Godfather of Gegenpressing’, arrives in Manchester with a stellar reputation among Europe’s coaching elite.

Rangnick is widely regarded as a mentor to Julian Nagelsmann, Ralph Hasenhuttl, Klopp, Tuchel among other high profile managers.

During an interview with MUTV, the German was asked whether he had spoken with Tuchel, Klopp or Hassenhuttl, Rangnick replied, “I don’t need to speak to them about life in England because I lived in England myself some 40 years ago and I’ve been here on and off so I get along well in the country.

“Jurgen Klopp is also a German coach at Liverpool. We are all busy enough in our own jobs and there is not that much time to speak with other coaches.

“This has always been the case also in Germany. But, of course, when we see each other and play against each other this will only be in March or April, I’m very much looking forward to seeing those three.”
