Ralf Rangnick will bring a set of 'clear rules' to Manchester United that the club's flops must follow if they are to turn their season around.
The German has reportedly reached an agreement with United to become the club's interim manager until the end of the season, replacing Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.
Rangnick has previously won the German Cup with Schalke and two Austrian league and cup doubles in his time with Red Bull Salzburg.
He is now set to be tasked with saving United's season, with the Red Devils currently seventh in the Premier League and he is set to bring clear rules with him to help achieve this.
In a previous column for The Coaches' Voice, Rangnick explained how he has become calmer in his approach and what his experiences in the dugout have taught him.
"I would say that I have become a bit calmer as a manager," explained the former RB Leipzig boss.
"I have learned that many mistakes stem from getting too emotionally evolved during games, either because you’ve fallen in love with your team’s performance or are angry.
Where will Manchester United finish under Ralf Rangnick? Let us know in the comments section below.
"It’s important to keep your balance and look at the game dispassionately, to analyse what’s really going on and see what needs to be changed, perhaps.
"Experience has also taught me that players need clear rules. But it’s not enough to tell them what they can’t do and have to do.
"You have to convince them that adhering to the rules works for them. The changing room needs to buy into it. They will ensure that players stay on the straight and narrow, because it can’t all come from the top.
"Peer pressure is stronger than boss pressure. And the rules must apply to the manager as well. You have to practise what you preach at all times."
Rangnick will not take charge of Sunday's trip to Chelsea while United negotiate his release from his role as Lokomotiv Moscow's managing director.
This means that his likely first game in charge will come at home to Arsenal next Thursday.
