Following the sacking of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and the appointment of Ralf Rangnick, Manchester United are on to their seventh manager to take charge of the team since the retirement of Sir Alex Ferguson in 2013.
Indeed, for a club like the Red Devils, seven managers in the space of eight years is something that many would not have been expecting and one that many would have found incredibly hard to predict, especially as Fergie appears to still have a rather influential say on things at Old Trafford.

Of course, Manchester United are now finding out for themselves how badly getting it wrong can be, as they appear to be lightyears away from challenging the likes of Manchester City, Liverpool and Chelsea for the Premier League title.
With Rangnick set to take charge of his first game as United boss against Crystal Palace instead of Arsenal due to work permit issues, Michael Carrick will continue his temporary stint in the hotseat.
Planet Football has decided to take a look at how the six managers to follow Sir Alex Ferguson at Old Trafford got on in their debut game.
David Moyes was the man chosen to be Fergie’s successor by the former manager himself, however things did not work out as well as anyone would have hoped or as well as they are going now at West Ham United. Moyes lasted just 10 months into a six-year deal before being told to pack his bags and leave.
His first game in charge was against Wigan Athletic in the FA Community Shield, which ended in a 2-0 win and provided him with his only piece of silverware for the club.
Ryan Giggs took over the role once Moyes was sacked and took charge of the final four games of the 2013/14 season as an interim player-manager. His first game in charge was against Norwich City and saw him lead his team to a 4-0 win
United fans would have felt that they hit the jackpot in the summer of 2014 as they managed to acquire Louis van Gaal’s services following the 2014 FIFA World Cup where he was managing the Netherlands.
However, he suffered defeat in his debut as the Red Devils’ boss saw his side get beat 2-1 on the opening day to Swansea, recording the first opening day home defeat since 1972 in the process, as well.
Lasting two seasons, Van Gaal was replaced by Jose Mourinho in another blockbuster managerial move but, as we all know with the Portuguese manager, things turn sour after a period of time.
Mourinho did manage to win his debut game in charge of the club, though, as he followed Moyes in obtaining the FA Community Shield in the 2016/17 season as they defeated Leicester City 2-1.
After only lasting just over two years himself, he was sacked and replaced by Solskjaer, who actually had his debut against a team he once managed in the past.
The Norwegian was manager of Cardiff City in 2014 for a brief spell and returned to the city in December 2018 as Manchester United manager for his very first game. His team put on a show as they ran out 5-1 winners.
As we know, Carrick has since been in charge of affairs at the Red Devils recently whilst Rangnick becomes finalised, and also won his debut match in charge. A UEFA Champions League Group Stage game against Villarreal that ended with a 2-0 win against the team that beat them in the UEFA Europa League final last season helped the English side to qualify for the next phase and start Carrick’s own managerial career positively.
With all but Van Gaal achieving wins in their first game in charge, Rangnick will want to ensure he does not join the Dutchman with egg on his face in his first match as Manchester United manager.
