Germany legend Lotthar Matthäus has questioned Ralf Rangnick splitting his time between Manchester United and Austria next season.

Rangnick is set to step down from his caretaker role at Manchester United at the end of the season, with Ajax manager Erik ten Hag due to arrive as Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s long-term replacement.

He will not be leaving Old Trafford, though, and will instead move upwards at the club and take up a consultancy role for the next year at least.

That, though, won’t be his only job, with Austria and Manchester United confirming this week that he will split his time between managing the national side and a consultancy role at United.

That decision has not gone down well with some in England, where the likes of Gary Neville have already questioned the logic of such a working set up.

And it seems Matthäus is of the same mind, believing that Rangnick should be focusing his efforts on one job rather than splitting them.

“First of all, I don’t necessarily think it’s good to do two jobs. Even a Ralf Rangnick, who I appreciate as an expert, should focus on one job,” Sport Buzzer report him saying.

“I wouldn’t have done that now as Austria. They had other options, they had national candidates on their list.

“But if he reconciles that – and Austria accepts it – then that’s one thing I don’t want to interfere with.”
