At the request of Rangnick, the eight-year partnership with Red Bull has come to an end. He reportedly toyed with the idea of quitting the energy drink manufacturer. “Now is the right time to end my period here. I would like to thank everyone for their support and confidence,” said Rangnick.
AC Milan has been chasing Rangnick’s signature for longer. Everything was already finished, but the deal was canceled at the last minute because the club management wanted to continue with Stefano Pioli. Rangnick stayed with Red Bull, but has now also left there.
