Ralf Rangnick’s work permit has come through and he will be able to lead Manchester United against Crystal Palace on Sunday.

The German has to reverse the slump which cost Ole Gunnar Solskjaer his job and try and get United into the Premier League top four.

That is not an easy task and some members of the Class of ’92 have been asked where they think United will finish when Rangnick’s interim reign in charge finishes.

In an interview with ZujuGP on Facebook Live, both the Neville brothers and Nicky Butt gave their view.

Gary Neville was the first to reply, saying fourth, while Ryan Giggs added that he would ‘take fourth right now’.

Brother Phil thought the same, saying: “I think they’ll just squeeze into the top four.

Butt, who left the club in March, was less optimstic and said fifth which would obviously mean a Europa League spot.

For United to come second last time around, sign Jadon Sancho, Cristiano Ronaldo and Raphael Varane and finish outside the top four would be an incredibly poor season.

But United have a lot of improvements to make if they are to finish in the top four.

Under Solskjaer, the performances were disjointed, the home form in the league had been really poor and there were obviously thumpings against Liverpool and Manchester City.

Rangnick has the experience and philosophy to change things around but United are in a real fight for the top four and Butt’s pessimism may be shared by some supporters ahead of the German’s first game.
