Line in one of the gutter rags suggests the club did not consult Sir Alex when it came to the appointment of Ralf Rangnick.

Interesting if true, as it suggests a shift in where the power lies at Old Trafford.

Sir Alex has since his retirement been the go to man for football matters at the club.

So if true what has changed? The rumours are the Murtagh is a "key man" in searching for Ole's replacement. Has his impact been heard and is the seemingly smart decision to hire Rangnick something that has his fingerprints all over or not.

I think it is down to the fact that Woodward's successor learned from his mistakes and probably doesn't want to be subjected to the same level of scrutiny.

Saw that too - Murtagh heavily involved in Rangnicks recruitment -also reading elsewhere that Rangnick was adamant before committing that the academy and development, implementing a playing style all comes under his remit going forward

Who knows if that's true so much clickbait in the rags . but its certainly encouraging if correct.

The academy and development was Murtough domain, so that would mean him delegating it out the Ralf, interesting power shift maybe.
