The English Premier League: Rangnick Picks Armas for Man Utd Coaching Staff

2 min read

Incoming interim manager Ralf Rangnick is expected to make some changes in the current set-up of Manchester United. Currently, he’s testing the waters with his coaching staff, with the interim manager expected to pick Chris Armas for his coaching staff and to help him improve their standings in the English Premier League fixtures after the departure of Michael Carrick, the previous interim manager.

The 49-year-old Armas has had some valuable experience in team management with the New York Red Bulls from 2018 to 2020 in Major League Soccer. Rangnick was connected with the team at some point, having been appointed head of sport and development with franchise owner Red Bull. This explains his familiarity with Armas’ stint as a coach.

A List of Impressive Credentials

Armas had been a former Puerto Rico and US international in soccer. After his playing days, he became an assistant coach with the Chicago Fire before being appointed as head coach of the women’s team of the Adelphi Panthers. He was appointed manager of Toronto FC recently, but was sacked following a 7-1 defeat to DC United.

Manchester United FC news paints him in a different light, though. He was instrumental in helping the Red Bulls to their best regular season record, although they were defeated during the opening of the play-offs. They had a chance to repeat the following season after finishing sixth in the MLS Eastern Conference, but was booted out yet again in the first round.

A Vote of Confidence from Rangnick

This doesn’t seem to faze Rangnick, who is confident Armas will be his usual, excellent self. It is also the belief of Diogo Dalot, Man Utd right-back. Following their game where they made the football match live score interesting, he said that Rangnick’s choice should help United become what they were meant to be.

The player also added that Rangnick may have some very interesting ideas which would only work if each player buys into the system. He hoped that the relationship would mutually benefit both player and coach and that it would extend to Man Utd as well.

Opinions Should Matter in the Long Run

Whether Armas and Rangnick would work together beautifully remained to be seen, but the right-back said that it wasn’t fair to have opinions so early into their appointments. 12BET sportsbook pundits should expect the team to change their fortunes if, indeed, everyone comes together to listen to the ideas of Armas and Rangnick.
