New Manchester United interim boss Ralf Rangnick has revealed he hasn’t yet spoken to any of his German counterparts in the Permier League because he believes they will be busy with their own teams.

The new Manchester United interim coach officially takes charge of his first game when Manchester United play Crystal Palace on Sunday.

Rangnick spoke to the media about his relationship with some of the coaches he has inspired, including Liverpool’s Jurgen Klopp and Chelsea’s Thomas Tuchel, but the German is now in competition mode and isn’t ready to exchange pleasantries anytime soon.

When asked whether he has contracted any of them since he got the Man United job, the 63 year old 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.”
