Leipzig director Rangnick confirms talks over England job but not since Allardyce's exit
Rangnick, 58, who coached Leipzig to their first promotion to the Bundesliga last season before moving into his new role, has emerged as one of the favourites to succeed Allardyce, whose contract was terminated by mutual consent on Tuesday.
There had been speculation he had already been approached by the FA, but Rangnick said he had not had any contact since July.
“The fact is, a few days after the Euro 2016 final, I got a call,” he said.
“Since then, there has not been any more contact. To say that such a job would never come into question would certainly not be right.”
