Sky Germany: Rangnick will join AC Milan – his powers and philosophy outlined

By Oliver Fisher -

Confirmations have reportedly arrived from Germany that Ralf Rangnick will be the coach and sporting director of AC Milan for next season.

According to Sky Germany reporter Jan Henkel (via the Italian version of the site), Rangnick will join up with Milan and take on an omnipotent role ahead of next season.

The journalist claims that Rangnick has demanded full decision making powers in order to begin a new adventure in Italy, as when he starts a project he wants to complete it, just like he did in Germany with Hoffenheim and RB Leipzig.

Henkel adds that Rangnick’s vision is built around young players with his potential and that his playing style is high intensity and the objective of shooting within 10 seconds of winning the ball back.

The reporter adds that it could be an advantage for him not to understand what will be written in the newspapers, despite the rumours that he is learning Italian on an intensive course.
