Rangick admits he doesn’t know Darren Fletcher’s role

Manchester United interim Ralf Rangnick has admitted he doesn’t know the role being played by Darren Fletcher at the club.

Fletcher was part of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s bench during the Norwegian tenure at Old Trafford and the Scotsman has maintained his place under the German despite being appointed ‘technical director’ two months later.

Asked to clarify Fletcher’s role at the club, Rangnick said: “I can only tell what I have experienced in the last 11 or 12 weeks. He’s almost always been part of each training session, obviously of each game.

“Whenever I had a question about what he thinks because obviously, he has been knowing the players for a long time, I could always and will always ask his opinion. So it’s good to have him on the team.

“What his role is in regard to the club, I don’t really know to be honest, because I can only tell you what’s happening in the training sessions and around the training sessions and around the games. In those areas, it’s good to have him on board.”

When he was appointed in his new role, the club said Fletcher Fletcher’s job was to “focus on a coordinated and long-term approach to player and squad development, helping maintain the integral link between the academy and the first team, aligned with Manchester United’s values and culture.”
