A little over a week after sacking Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, Manchester United on Monday named German Ralf Rangnick as its interim manager until the end of the season.
Following this period, Rangnick and the club have agreed that he will continue in a consultancy role for a further two years.
The 63-year-old has coached a number of German clubs in the past and was most recently head of sport and development at Russian Premier League side Lokomotiv Moscow, a position he will leave to take over at Old Trafford.
Former United midfielder Michael Carrick who took charge of the team during the past week, will remain in charge of the first team until Rangnick's work visa is finalized.
The club currently sits in 8th place in the English Premier League with 18 points in 13 matches.
