VIENNA: Ralf Rangnick will be the new national team coach of Austria and will combine the job with his role as a consultant at Manchester United next season.

The current interim manager at Old Trafford is being replaced during the summer by Eric ten Hag but has a consultancy deal running until 2024.

Austria failed to qualify for the 2022 World Cup in Qatar after losing a playoff semi-final 2-1 to Wales in Cardiff.

That defeat prompted the resignation of Franco Foda.
