Rangnick confirms coaching staff additions
Manchester United interim manager Ralf Rangnick has confirmed two new names are set to join his backroom team.
“It won't be that many [staff coming in],” explained Rangnick. “So far I'm very happy to work with the staff I have met last week, and they gave me a lot of help in the last couple of days in preparation for the Crystal Palace game.
“We have decided to bring in a sports psychologist, with Sascha Lense. He's from Germany, he's a former Second Division player.
“I worked with him for three years at Leipzig, in the year I won promotion from the second to the first division myself and the following two years when Ralph Hasenhuttl was head coach and Zsolt Low – the current assistant coach of Thomas Tuchel – was assistant coach.
“We have known each other since then and he will be introduced to the team as soon as he's got his visa and work permit."
“Chris used to be the assistant coach at the New York Red Bulls under Jesse Marsch. That was five years ago, when I first met him.
“Since then we have met quite frequently. Also in my role as head of global for Red Bull in the last three-and-a-half years he was head coach for the New York Red Bulls and for Toronto in the MLS.”
