Man Utd boss Ralf Rangnick watches England play West Indies in Barbados but fans convinced he’s not just on holiday

RALF RANGNICK was a surprise guest at England’s cricket match against the West Indies in sunny Barbados.

The Manchester United interim boss was pictured in the stands on day four of the Second Test – but some fans reckon the trip could be for business rather than pleasure.

Rangnick, 63, was pictured alongside legendary West Indies former opening batsman Sir Gordon Greenidge.

With Manchester United out of the FA Cup so not in action this weekend, and next week being an international break, the German found himself with some spare time on his hands.

He was a “special guest” at the Kensington Oval while holidaying in Barbados alongside Greenidge, 70, with United not in action again until April 2.

Although after the West Indies cricket team posted the picture to their Twitter account, some reckoned Rangnick could have a secret mission on the agenda.

United’s owners the Glazer family have been rumoured to be interested in moving into cricket by purchasing a team in the new UAE Twenty20 League.

Avram Glazer has been snapped speaking to Dubai’s Sport Council chairman Sheikh Mansoor bin Mohammed in the Middle East.

And Rangnick’s attendance at a cricket match, albeit an international one, has fuelled further rumours.

Club legend Gary Neville slammed Avram Glazer last week for jetting to Dubai to discuss cricket soon after United crashed out of the Champions League.

However SunSport understands the Glazers are not actively pursuing buying a cricket team at this moment in time.

Rangnick was appointed interim boss at Old Trafford in December after Ole Gunnar Solskjaer was sacked.

He’s set to move into a consultancy role in the summer when a new permanent manager is set to be hired.

Ajax head coach Erik ten Hag and Paris Saint-Germain chief Mauricio Pochettino are the current front runners for the gig.

But Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel has also emerged as a shock candidate amid the sanction chaos at Stamford Bridge.
