The English Premier League: Rangnick Picks Armas for Man Utd Coaching Staff

The English Premier League: Rangnick Picks Armas for Man Utd Coaching Staff

Ralf Rangnick has some changes he’s expected to make in the Manchester United set-up. Currently, he’s testing the waters with his coaching staff, with the interim manager expected to pick Chris Armas for his coaching staff and to help him improve their standings in the English Premier League table after the departure of Michael Carrick, the previous interim manager.

Armas, 49, has had some management experience coaching the New York Red Bulls during the 2018-20 seasons of Major League Soccer in the US. Rangnick had been head of sport and development for the franchise owner Red Bull, so he is familiar with Armas’ work.

A List of Impressive Credentials

Before his career as a coach, Armas was a former US and Puerto Rico international midfielder. He then had a stint as assistant coach at Chicago fire before moving on to coach the Adelphi Panthers’ women’s team. After his career at NY Red Bulls as an assistant coach, he was given the coaching job at Toronto FC but was fired after a 7-1 DC United defeat.

Manchester United news paints him in a different light, though. He was instrumental in helping the Red Bulls to their best regular season record, although they were defeated during the opening of the play-offs. The following season, they finished sixth in the Eastern Conference, but were knocked out yet again in the first round of the play-offs.

A Vote of Confidence from Rangnick

This doesn’t seem to faze Rangnick, who is confident Armas will be his usual, excellent self. It is also the belief of Diogo Dalot, Man Utd right-back. Following their game where they made the football live score interesting, he said that Rangnick’s choice should help United become what they were meant to be.

He also added that Rangnick should have some very interesting ideas, but those would only work if every player buys into his plans. Dalot hoped that he would be able to get the best out of the team and that they could expect the same from him.

Opinions Should Matter in the Long Run

It wasn’t clear whether the mix of Armas and Rangnick would work, but the right-back said that opinions should form right after a few more runs with the current coaching staff. 12BET live pundits should expect the team to change their fortunes if, indeed, everyone comes together to listen to the ideas of Armas and Rangnick.
