Manchester United confirmed on Thursday that Ralph Rangnick has been granted a work permit to begin his tenure as the club’s manager.
On Friday, the 63-year-old German will be unveiled to the media before taking charge of the team for the first time on Sunday at Crystal Palace.
“As all paperwork has now been completed, we will hold an in-person press conference with Ralf Rangnick at Old Trafford at 9:00 am tomorrow morning,” said a United statement.
Rangnick was named as Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s short-term replacement by Manchester United on Monday.
Rangnick, who was previously the manager of sports and development at Lokomotiv Moscow in Russia, had to wait for a work permit before starting at Old Trafford.
Michael Carrick, the caretaker manager, will take command for the third time against Arsenal at Old Trafford on Thursday, after overseeing a Champions League win over Villarreal and a Premier League draw against Chelsea.
Rangnick will serve as manager until the end of the season, after which he will join United as a consultant for two years.
