Ralf Rangnick is set to take charge of Manchester United for the first time against Crystal Palace on Sunday after he was granted a work permit.

United had hoped to have Rangnick in the dugout for tonight’s clash against Arsenal but Michael Carrick will remain in charge for the third and final time after the German’s application was held up.
However, Rangnick has now been granted a work permit and he will be able to take charge for Sunday’s game against Palace.
Rangnick will attend tonight’s clash against the Gunners and he was shown around Old Trafford yesterday, as well as the training ground.
