Ralf Rangnick reveals why he rejected Chelsea after Frank Lampard sacking

Ralf Rangnick reveals why he rejected Chelsea after Frank Lampard sacking

Ralf Rangnick has revealed on his decision to reject overtures from Chelsea earlier this year, only to accept a job at Manchester United months later.

Rangnick was speaking at his first press conference at Old Trafford since being confirmed as Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s interim managerial successor, with a work permit granted on Thursday to allow his tenure to officially begin.

“At the time, when Chelsea contacted me in February, they only spoke about the option to become interim manager for four months, without any prospective to work in the long-term together,’ Rangnick said on Friday.

“Here now, we are talking about six-and-a-half months. We only have one third of all the games played in the Premier League. As you all know, we have also agreed upon a two-year advisory role after those six-and-a-half months.

“In the end, to be honest, if a club like Manchester United contacts you for such a role, you cannot possibly turn it down.”
