Erik ten Hag was ‘reluctant’ to work with Ralf Rangnick is his consultancy role at Manchester United, according to ESPN FC.
The interim manager was actually denied a formal handover with the new boss following Ten Hag’s official appointment last month.
Ralf Rangnick was expecting to meet the Dutchman face to face in Manchester ‘for a detailed meeting’ but the Dutchman ‘opted to grant only a phone call’.
The German officially left the club by mutual agreement last month, sign a nondisclosure agreement as part of his Man United departure.
Now new Man United boss is set to kick off the preseason training with the United squad without confirming any signings yet. The Red Devils have been linked with all the stars in the world, yet none has been reached agreement with so far.
