Man United: Rangnick content with OT squad strength
New Manchester United boss Ralf Rangnick is convinced he has the quality of players needed at Old Trafford to challenge for the game's top honours.
The former RB Leipzig coach, who has been hailed as a great influence on managers such as Jurgen Klopp and Thomas Tuchel, has taken control of the Red Devils on an interim basis following the dismissal of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer last month.
Top four the realistic target
The 63-year-old will initially be in charge until the end of the season and, with Chelsea, Liverpool and Manchester City set to fight it out for the Premier League title this term, Rangnick will be looking to at least claim fourth spot.

They have also fought their way through the knockout stage of this season's Champions League with a game to spare, despite some close shaves against Atalanta and Villarreal, and it's for their fourth triumph in the competition.
But, as he prepares his team for Sunday's match against Crystal Palace, Rangnick is already looking beyond initial targets and is aiming to mould a squad who could capture their first Premier League title since 2013.
And he is convinced he has the players at his disposal to make that happen, noting that Klopp did not have as strong a squad when he joined Liverpool in 2015.
Rangnick content with squad make-up
"It's definitely good enough to compete,” said Rangnick, who has also had long spells in charge of Borussia Monchengladbach and Hoffenheim. "The top three teams are very good with great managers.
"When Jurgen Klopp went to Liverpool, it definitely wasn't a better squad than what I have at United.
"In the ideal world, we will not only be in the top four regularly but also playing for titles. This is also something that is in the DNA of the club, winning leagues, winning cups, being as successful as you can be in the Champions League.
"This is also an issue for the new year. We're still in the Champions League and depending on the draw, hopefully we can get further in that competition."
