I could not turn down biggest club's offer - Rangnick

The German coach attended his first press conference since taking over at Manchester United.


Manchester United

manager Ralf Rangnick has claimed that he could not turn down Manchester United's offer, and also spoke about his plans for the team until the end of the season.

The German coach will lead Manchester United until the end of the season and then will be the club's advisor for two years. He will start training with the club from today and will sit on the team bench on Sunday against

Crystal Palace

. He watched the Red Devils' 3-2 win over


at Old Trafford last night and now talks about his plans for the team in the next few months.

"We are talking about six and a half months, one third of the games, and we have agreed on a two-year advisory deal. If a club like Manchester United contacts you for such a role, you cannot possibly turn it down," he told reporters in his first press conference.

"It is one of the biggest clubs, if not the biggest club in the world. It is a big challenge, but I am more than happy to work with this group of players.

"I mean obviously I have watched the latest games, I also watched out of interest the games against Liverpool and Manchester City, so I am pretty well acquainted with what is going on at the club.

"The major target for me is just to bring more balance to the team. We conceded two goals yesterday and if you look at the total number of goals conceded, it is on average of two a game.

"That is just too much. Those are not the kind of games you need every day. In football to me, it's to minimise the coincidence factor.

"It's about winning games and, in the end, I'm very ambitious. We want to make the most successful season that is possible. Right now, we have to be realistic. The difference between us and the top three is big. But let's see."
