Manchester United interim manager Ralf Rangnick hopes to win a trophy before the end of his six-month tenure.
The Red Devils haven’t won any major silverware since lifting from the Europa League in 2017 under Jose Mourinho.
But if they end their drought, the German will want to enjoy all the celebrations far more than he did in 2016 when he guided RB Leipzig into the Bundesliga.
It was a momentous occasion for the club which was founded in May 2009 as it climbed the football pyramid.
In the post-match celebrations that followed Leipzig’s 2-0 victory over Karlsruhe, which guaranteed their promotion, Rangnick suffered enormous embarrassment.
Former RB Leipzig striker Davie Selke led the party, wielding a huge glass of comedic beer, deciding to chase down his boss before pouring the amber nectar all over him.
However, the euphoria was short-lived as Rangnick suffered an unfortunate fall when he pulled on his hamstrings while trying to escape, causing him to miss his post-match press conference.
Selke was asked about the incident and he joked that he hadn’t seen his boss in distress since.
“No, I’m too scared! That’s why I give so many interviews, so I don’t have to go back to the locker room. I’m going to have to run away, ”he admitted.
“He definitely tried to run away from me, which isn’t a good idea – I caught up with him, I won the race. Then something happened, he probably didn’t warm up enough!
Since promoting RB Leipzig in 2015/16, they have solidified their status as a top-level team that can compete for major honors, with Rangnick playing an important role.
He left that summer but returned to Leipzig in 2018, leading the club to a third place in the Bundesliga, when they were also DFB-Pokal finalists, losing 3-0 to Bayern Munich.
But the odds of him winning a major trophy at Old Trafford seem slim given his management background.
The 63-year-old has only one manager to have won the Intertoto Cup, Bundesliga 2, DFB-Pokal, DFL-Supercup, DFL-Ligapokal in managerial periods with Stuttgart, Hanover and Schalke.
