It was inevitable that Tuchel would be asked about Ralf Rangnick, expected to be announced shortly as Manchester United’s interim manager.

Though he admitted that it was Rangnick who gave him the belief to get into coaching, Tuchel stopped short of discussing the situation further out of respect for United and Rangnick, given that nothing was concluded at the time of the press conference.
