Manchester United have delivered fans an update on Ralf Rangnick's arrival.
Rangnick's appointment until the end of the season was confirmed on Monday but immediately there were concerns that he would be prevented from starting the job by work-permit red tape.
Club staff were told at Carrington on Monday that Rangnick is unlikely to be in charge until the end of the week, while the 63-year-old German waits for his permit to be approved.
Michael Carrick will remain in charge until Rangnick's arrival after overseeing a Champions League win over Villarreal and a draw at Premier League leaders Chelsea.
A club statement on Tuesday morning read: "Ralf Rangnick was announced as interim manager on Monday but, while the club follows the regulatory process around a work visa, Carrick will continue at the helm.
"Michael has communicated this to players and staff at Carrington in a busy week for the club."
