Austrian FA react after 'Peter Schöttel meets with Ralf Rangnick' reports emerged

The Austrian Football Association have denied reports that claimed they held a meeting with Ralf Rangnick in order to convince the Manchester United interim boss to become their next boss.

Manchester United appointed Ralf Rangnick as their interim manager in December, following the sacking of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer in November.

The German boss would agree to a two-year deal with The Red Devils to take up a consulting role, rather than try to become their next permanent manager.

However, that hasn’t ruled out the chances of seeing the former RB Leipzig manager leave the Manchester club entirely at the end of the season.

Reports emerged this week that Austrian FA Sporting Director Peter Schottel travelled to Manchester to convince Rangnick to become their next national team manager.

But the Austrian FA have denied such report, insisting that there was no meeting between Schottel and the Manchester United interim boss.
