SportExpressen: Rangnick will join Milan this summer in unprecedented double role

By MaaxiAngelo -

There has been a lot of speculation of what is going on with Milan’s management both now and in the immediate future this summer.

A new development to the story took place on Tuesday night, as Swedish SportExpressen confirmed that Ralf Rangnick will take over at Milan once the season in completed.

Notorious for being a reliable source, they provided an exclusive report saying that their sources have confirmed that Rangnick will take over Milan as manager and sporting director from next season. In addition, they state that his role will be extensive and he will be given significant responsibility on the recruitment side.

Rangnick’s hiring means the end of Stefano Pioli, Zvonimir Boban and Paolo Maldini’s stay with the club according to the outlet. This, however, has been more or less confirmed by multiple news outlets in the last 24 hours.

Rangnick’s latest manager position was with RB Leipzig 2018-19, after taking on the manager role again along his then sporting director role. He had previously been Leipzig’s manager throughout the 2015-16 season but stepped down thereafter to work as the club’s sporting director.

Since the end of the 2018-19 season, Rangnick has worked as the Red Bull company’s head of sport and soccer development.
