No official announcement has been made it yet, but sources that former Leipzig coach, Ralf Rangnick, has been approached by Manchester United, and discussions are going about him occupying the role of interim manager for the team.
The manager position was left vacant after Ole Gunnar Solskjaer was fired from his post on Sunday. Until an interim manager is appointed, Michael Carrick, the former United Midfielder will be in charge of the team. He had been on Ole’s coaching staff. The team under Carrick’s leadership started with a 2-0 win against Villarreal.
Fabrizio Miccoli sentenced to prison on charges of extortion
On the other hand, things are not going well for former Juventus and Italy striker, Fabrizio Miccoli who was sentenced to three and a half years in prison by the Supreme Court of Cassation, which is Italy’s highest court. He was charged with extortion and for using a mafia boss’s son to extort money.
In 2010 and 2011, the striker blackmailed and recovered 12000 euros from a nightclub owner in Palermo using a mafia boss’s son. Apparently, he did in on behalf of a football club caller physio. He was found guilty of the same in 2017. He had made an appeal to the court but his appeal was rejected. Miccoli was arrested by the police in thet northern city of Rovigo.
In 2013 he had made an insulating comment on Giovanni Falcone, the murdered anti-mafia judge. The Palermo’s anti-mafia unit had wiretapped his place without his knowledge. They found evidence of him being in contact with a mafia boss’s son and using mafia methods. Soon he was sent an official notice of investigation.
