Manganese fluoride - MnF2
TiO2 (Rutile) has a common structural arrangement shared by many fluorides of the transition metals with formula MX2, like MnF2. Generally, if the radius ratio r-/r+ exceeds ~1.37 then a rutile rather than fluorite structure is favoured.

Complexes that share this structure include..
CrF2, CrCl2, FeF2, CoF2, NiF2.
