Manchester. Interim coach Ralph Rangnick has announced his first personal commitment to English football record champions Manchester United. Sascha Lense, with whom Rangnick has already worked at RB Leipzig, is supposed to work with the Red Devils as the team’s sports psychologist.

In this position, the 46-year-old also worked twice for Dynamo Dresden – in the 2014/15 and 2018/19 seasons. After the first period of his position, he moved to the right-back RB, after the second period to FC Schalke 04. Lense has also been active as a professional in the Black and Yellows. In the 1999/2000 season, he played 19 times in the regional league before it was terminated without warning.

Lins drove a wedge into the team, then-chairman Indrik Wilhelm announced in March 2000. After the team met after 1:4 in Eisenhutenstadt, Lins Wilhelm called and said most of the players had spoken out against coach Colin Bell. Bell initially remained in the position, but was soon replaced by Core Pot.

Rangnick justified his decision in favor of Lens on Tuesday as follows: “In Germany there is almost a sports psychologist in all clubs. For me this is quite logical. If you have private coaches for goalkeepers, strikers and fitness, you should also have an expert so you have a mind. “.

American Chris Armas is set to become assistant coach, who was for a long time an assistant coach for recently released RB Leipzig Jesse Marsh for the New York Red Bulls before becoming his successor as head coach. Most recently he was a coach for Toronto FC. Before the Armas and Lense obligations are perfect, they both need a British permit to live and work.

Rangnick took over the vacant coaching position at Manchester last week. In the first match with the 63-year-old on the sidelines, the star group around Cristiano Ronaldo beat Crystal Palace 1-0. Rangnex plays the next game on Wednesday in the Champions League against Young Boys Bern. Man United are already qualified for the knockout stage. (dpa)
