Rangnick had a chance of leading the Red Devils during their clash with Arsenal mid-last week but had no proper documentation at the time.

Michael Carrick, who had been named caretaker boss after the departure of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer stayed at the helm instead as Rangnick watched from the stands.

The match may have given the German tactician a glimpse of his dressing room and now has his work cut out as he prepares for his tenure in the Premier League against Crystal Palace.
