Manchester United interim manager Ralf Rangnick will reportedly not be in charge of Thursday’s clash with Arsenal as the club continues to overcome issues relating to the German’s visa and Covid-19 regulations.  

Rangnick’s appointment until the end of the season was confirmed on Monday but immediately there were concerns that he would be prevented from starting the job by work-permit red tape and new Covid restrictions.

Club staff were told at Carrington on Monday that Rangnick is unlikely to be in charge until the end of the week, while the 63-year-old German waits for his permit to be approved.

The problem has been worsened by stricter Covid rules for travellers arriving in the UK that came into force in the early hours of Tuesday morning.

Now, according to the BBC, the German will not be in the dugout for Thursday night’s visit of Mikel Arteta’s Arsenal. 

United remain hopeful Rangnick will take over in time for Palace’s visit on Sunday and a club spokesman said on Monday night: ‘We are working calmly and carefully to secure a visa for Ralf in line with all relevant regulations and protocols. These are processes which have to be followed and we are doing so as swiftly as possible.’
