Ralf Rangnick, the manager of Manchester United, has accepted a new position as he prepares to leave the club.
The German has agreed to take over as coach of Austria’s national team for a two-year contract.
Rangnick will combine the position with his consulting work for Manchester United whenever Erik ten Hag returns to Old Trafford.
According to the Austrian newspaper Kurier, the 63-year-old has also reached an arrangement with the president of Austria’s Football Association (OFB).
According to the report, the manager will be officially confirmed by the OFB in the following days.
Austria needs to find a new manager after failing to qualify for the World Cup in Qatar later this year.
He will have only three games left in charge of Manchester United after Thursday’s encounter against Chelsea at Old Trafford.
Meanwhile, the responsibilities of his consultancy role at Old Trafford have still to be determined.
