Rangnick's Time at RB Leipzig in Detailed Thread: Like and Retweet :)

We'll focus on the central role the 63-year-old has played in Leipzig’s rise from the fourth tier to Bundesliga title contenders in nine short years. #Rangnick #MUFC #GGMU
Leipzig had a good idea of what they were getting when Rangnick was appointed sporting director of both the Saxony upstarts and sister club, Salzburg, in June 2012. He had already guided Schalke to a runners-up finish in the 2004/05 Bundesliga. #Rangnick #MUFC
He took Hoffenheim from the 3. Liga to the Bundesliga - laying the foundations for the team that future Leipzig successor Julian Nagelsmann steered into the UEFA Champions League in 2018. #Rangnick #MUFC #GGMU
Rangnick then vacated his post at Salzburg to concentrate fully on Leipzig in May 2015. He returned to the dugout and achieved a historic promotion to the Bundesliga before making way for Ralph Hasenhüttl to take the reins for the club's maiden season in the top flight.
Under Rangnick, Leipzig came in third in the Bundesliga to secure a return to the Champions League. They boasted the stingiest defense in the league and, for the third successive season, ranked among the division's top-five highest scorers. #Rangnick #MUFC
Kampl on Rangnick:
"I've met a lot of people in football, but I've never come across someone who is as mad about the game as Ralf Rangnick," said Leipzig midfielder Kevin Kampl earlier in 2018/19. "It's just a joy to work under someone like that. He's done a fantastic job." #MUFC
Rangnick's introduction of a 'wheel of fortune' instead of fines for breaking club rules; fixed meal times; a ban on the use of cell phones in function rooms; or his insistence on only English and German in the dressing room are no draconian measures. On the contrary, in fact.
Rangnick in an interview
"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. Once you stop understanding them, their fears & aspirations, you have to stop managing. #MUFC
..... "Tactics, fitness & rules are all hugely important, but they’re only a means to an end. My job – the job – is to improve players. Players follow you as a manager if they feel that you make them better. That’s the greatest, most sincere motivation there is." #Rangnick #MUFC
Rangnick works with equal finesse and relishes behind the scenes. His policy of the three K’s - Kapital, Konzept & Kompetenz (money, concept & competence) has been integral to Leipzig's ongoing success story. And while he admits Leipzig spent money but they have done it wisely.
Tyler Adams, Matheus Cunha, Emil Forsberg, Amadou Haidara, Naby Keita, Willi Orban, Yussuf Poulsen, Timo Werner: Leipzig's list of acquisitions down the years reads like a who's who of world football's most promising youngsters. Rangnick is behind all of them.
"If we continue a good recruitment policy – getting the right players at the right time and not the wrong ones because experience has shown how important this is – when we are confident we can establish ourselves up there," said Rangnick. #MUFC #Rangnick
He hand-picked Nagelsmann and Markus Krösche to succeed him as head coach and sporting director respectively. His goal was to further narrow the gap to Dortmund and Bayern.

Rangnick blueprint has delivered. In the two years since his departure, Leipzig have reached the Champions League semi-finals, DFB Cup final, and secured back-to-back top-three finishes in the Bundesliga. #Rangnick #MUFC
