“The squad is full of talent and has a great balance of youth and experience. All my efforts for the next six months will be on helping these players fulfil their potential, both individually and, most importantly, as a team.
“Beyond that, I look forward to supporting the club’s longer-term goals on a consultancy basis," he added.

The former RB Leipzig boss will be taking charge at a time the Old Trafford have been struggling to register favourable results, especially in the domestic scene.

Despite a promising start to the season, United have endured a dip in form that has impacted negatively on their overall performances.

The Manchester club currently occupy eighth place on the standings with just 18 points, a staggering 12 behind leaders Chelsea who have 30 after 13 rounds of matches.

United's next assignment will be a home meeting with rivals Arsenal on Thursday, December 2.
