Jurgen Klopp has admitted that he sympathizes with Ralf Rangnick because Manchester United’s interim manager sees the rest of the season.
Rangnick will remain in charge of the rest of the campaign until he hands over the reins to Erik the Hague. The head of Ajax was confirmed as the new manager of United on Thursday and is to take over at the end of the current season.
The Hag becomes the club’s fifth permanent manager since Sir Alex Ferguson’s retirement in 2013. Meanwhile, Rangnick is set to take on the role of consultant, according to the agreement when he joined the club in December.

“We all know that the first good news for United is that Erik ten Hag is now agreed and the future is already beginning.” But he also has to go through this season, “said Klopp.
“It’s really hard, I can imagine it and of course Ralf Rangnick, and I know what it sounds like when the Liverpool manager says I feel a little bit about him, but it’s true.” I understand it’s really hard.
“You’re going to Liverpool, they’re really good, and you say we don’t have a defensive midfielder, that’s not good news. It’s just not cool and they are in such a situation.
“I’m not interested in the gaps or the distances between us and them.” I know we will go there next year and keep in mind last year’s results, and when we get there, it will be even more difficult. But at the moment it is so, we are satisfied with our situation and they will solve their situation. “
