Éric Cantona sows confusion at Manchester United, Ralf Rangnick named as interim pope | Football

by drbyos

The Frenchman shared his message on Thursday morning. Hello friends, I would like to start this video by telling you exclusively that I am the new manager of Manchester United. See you soon.”

He would thus become the successor to the fired Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, but whether there is any truth in his message is debatable.

Interim pope Rangnick

Rangnick appears to be the new manager of Manchester United. According to English media, the 63-year-old German will sign a contract until the end of the season. He is still working, in a different role, at Lokomotiv Moscow.

Rangnick’s Russian employer still has to give permission for the transition, but according to insiders, Manchester United does not expect this to cause problems. After this season, the German would remain active in another role at the English top club for another two years.

Rangnick will probably not be part of the game with Chelsea next weekend, because all formalities have not yet been completed. He will succeed the recently fired Norwegian Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.

To fill the position of head coach for the longer term, Manchester United probably has a trainer in mind who is not yet available. The name of the Argentinian Mauricio Pochettino is especially mentioned, who is still active at Paris Saint-Germain.

Donny van de Beek plays for Manchester United, among others.

Successes and karate kick

The 55-year-old Cantona enjoyed his greatest successes in the United shirt, where he became a club legend. In five seasons (1992-1997), he won four English league titles and won the FA Cup twice. Cantona also played 45 caps for France. In it he scored twenty times.

He retired from football in 1997 at the age of thirty, after a career full of controversy and suspensions. In 1995, for example, he was sidelined for nine months after he gave a karate kick to a fan of the home team during the away game at Crystal Palace, who had challenged him in the stands. In 156 Premier League games, he found his way to the net 70 times.

Spectaculaire comeback

After a semi-acting career, he was regularly seen in various commercials. Cantona made a spectacular comeback to the football world on 29 August 2019 with a guest appearance in the Champions League draw for the 2019/2020 season.

The Frenchman gave a metaphorical and bizarre speech, William Shakespeare’s King Lear citing. The Frenchman seemed to be addressing a precarious world situation with his speech. Cantona concluded with the words; “I love football.”
