Pure excitement at the Austrian Football Association. The new team boss is to be presented on Friday. At 12.45 p.m., the ÖFB will hold a press conference. After the relevant executive committee meeting, ÖFB President Gerhard Milletich, Sports Director Peter Schöttel and Managing Director Bernhard Neuhold will answer questions at the Vienna Hotel Courtyard Marriott. Already on Thursday the “Kurier” reported that a real team boss sensation is looming. So no one less than Ralf Rangnick should become the new strong man on the sidelines of the Austrian national team. Rangnick is currently acting as caretaker manager at Manchester United. However, only until the end of the season, when Erik ten Haag will take over. Afterwards, the ex-Salzburg sports director should remain an advisor to the “Red Devils”.
Peter Stöger was also considered a hot contender for the team boss post. Most recently, the Swiss Vladimir Petkovic was traded as a candidate.
