Cris Armas to join Manchester United as coach after being left without a job for long

Chris Armas is expected to join Ralf Rangnick`s coaching staff in the `coming days`, according to The Athletic. It was only three days prior that Michael Carrick managed United to a 3-2 win against Arsenal at Old Trafford, but moments after the victory, the club`s former midfielder announced his immediate departure from his role of the first-team coach.

The American has previously managed New York Red Bulls and Toronto FC after a playing career with the Long Island Rough Riders, La Galaxy, and Chicago Fire. The 49-year-old, who got 66 caps for the USA national team, was born in New York but is of Puerto Rico descent.

Who is Cris Armas?

In July 2018, Armas was promoted to head coach of New York Red Bulls after former manager Jesse Marsch departed the club to join RB Salzburg, as an assistant. Just like sister clubs RB Leipzig and Salzburg, two teams that Rangnick has had a huge influence on in recent years, New York Red Bulls are also part of the Red Bull company.

As well as Leipzig and Salzburg, Rangnick was also head of sport and development for Red Bull`s clubs in New York and Brazil, while Armas was head coach. But after five months out of the game, it looks like Armas could be joining Rangnick at Old Trafford.
