United’s football director John Murtough appeared to give Rangnick the tour with the coach stopping to talk to former defender Wes Brown as he made his way across the field.

Caretaker manager Michael Carrick will take charge of a third game for the Gunners’ visit with Rangnick, whose appointment was confirmed Monday, watching from the stands.

Assuming Rangnick’s work permit is granted in time, his first game in charge will be Sunday’s home game against Crystal Palace.

As reported by Sportsmail on Tuesday night, Rangnick must convince a football association panel of his managerial credentials to get his work permit.

The 63-year-old flew to the UK on Monday, just before the tougher Covid restrictions came into effect hours later, and stayed at a hotel in Manchester.
