63-year-old German coach Ralf Rangnick, who was finally appointed by Manchester United as interim boss util end of season on Monday, has also been granted his work permit and will take charge in his opening game against Crystal Palace on Sunday.

Though, Rangnick will be in the stands against United's important Premier League clash on Thursday against Arsenal at Old Trafford, which will also be Michael Carrick's last game as care-taker boss. 

Ralf Rangnick will speak to the media for the first time in the role on Friday ahead of the Sunday's clash.

In his stint at the 20-times English Premier League Champions club, Rangnick's contract will see him take charge of the first team until June, and then remain at the club for at least a further two years in a consultancy role.

After a home game against Crystal Palace, United then have a home Champions League match against Swiss side Young Boys on December 8.

Meanwhile, Rangnick joins United from the Russian-club Lokomotiv Moscow where he was the manager of sports and development.
