Rangnick brings sports psychologist Lense to Manchester United | Free press

Manchester (AP) – Interim coach Ralf Rangnick has announced his first personnel commitments with the English soccer record champions Manchester United.

Sascha Lense, with whom Rangnick already worked at RB Leipzig, is supposed to work for the Red Devils as a sports psychologist for the team. “In Germany almost all clubs have a sports psychologist,” said Rangnick. “It’s absolutely logical for me. If you have special coaches for goalkeepers, strikers and fitness, then you should also have an expert on the brain. “

The US-American Chris Armas is to become the assistant coach, who was long assistant coach of the recently released RB Leipzig coach Jesse Marsch at the New York Red Bulls before he became his successor as head coach. Most recently he was the coach of Toronto FC. Before Armas and Lense’s commitments are perfect, they both need a UK permit to stay and work.

Rangnick had taken over the vacant coaching position in Manchester the previous week. In the first game with the 63-year-old on the sidelines, the star ensemble around Cristiano Ronaldo won 1-0 against Crystal Palace. Rangnicks team will play the next game in the Champions League against Young Boys Bern. Man United is already qualified for the knockout round.
