MANCHESTER UNITED’s interim boss Ralf Rangnick is set to become Austria coach.
But the German insists WILL will continue to take on his advisory role at Old Trafford alongside new Erik ten Hag from next season.
Rangnick, 63, has been temporarily appointed as United’s gaffer after Ole Gunnar Solskjaer was axed earlier in the season, with a view to a two-year tenure as an adviser from this summer.
His nightmare as a Red Devils substitute continued with a dismal 1-1 draw against Chelsea on Thursday.
But despite being offered an escape route, Rangnick insists he can do two jobs at once.
Asked about Austria’s role, he said: “Let’s talk about Manchester United tonight and our game and the rest of the season here.
“That’s the issue and I can also confirm that I will definitely continue my advisory role at the end of the season.
“It would leave room for another job. Yes.
“But that’s what we agreed to do in November last year.”
SunSport assumes that Rangnick’s Austria job could be officially announced as early as Friday.

Because Rangnick is said to only work 6 DAYS per month as an agent at Old Trafford means he has plenty of time to juggle two positions.
He added: “I didn’t say I would play a big role in the future. We have definitely agreed on both the content and the time of my consulting role.
“I haven’t spoken to Erik yet. Hopefully it will happen in the future.
“I am more than happy and willing to help change things for the better.
Rangnick has three games left with the Red Devils trying to cling to a European spot.
United then finish the campaign with games against Brentford, Brighton and Crystal Palace.
