Ralf Rangnick wants to meet Sir Alex Ferguson

New Manchester United manager Ralf Rangnick is planning on meeting club legend Sir Alex Ferguson.

The 63-year-old arrived in the UK earlier this week to be installed as interim manager at Old Trafford, but he's not yet had a chance to meet Ferguson again, with the Scot only returning from a break in New York this week.

“I wanted to (meet) but he only came back from New York yesterday and has had to stay at home because of quarantine and covid regulations," Rangnick said of meeting Ferguson.

“But I am very much looking forward to meeting him next over the two or three weeks. Darren Fletcher told me he wants to arrange a mutual lunch or dinner with him.

“I saw him when we played against him with Schalke obviously, after the second leg he invited me into his office at Old Trafford for a glass of wine. At the time, he enjoyed it far more than I did because we lost 4-1!" the new Man United coach said.

Rangnick and Ferguson went head-to-head in the Champions League semi-finals a decade ago, when United ran out 6-1 winners and they met again six years ago when there was the Kicker Sports magazine awards in Nuremberg.
