Former Manchester United midfielder Darren Fletcher was appointed as a new member of Manchester United’s coaching staff, under Norwegian coach Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.
Fletcher returned to the Old Trafford club last October to lead the ‘Red Devils’ U-16 youth squad.
Now, Fletcher will dedicate himself full time to his new role on the first team bench.
Fletcher, who played more than 300 games for Manchester United, winning the Champions League and three Premier League titles, also trained in the United youth academy.
The former Scottish international joined West Bromwich Albion in 2015, before ending his career at Stoke.
“Darren has United DNA running through his veins, and he knows exactly what it means to be a Manchester United player,” Solskjaer said on the club’s website.
“He is at the beginning of his coaching career and his experience on and off the pitch, together with his winning mentality, his commitment and his hard work, will be a great bonus for the coaching staff,” he added.
“It is a very encouraging moment for this young team and I am looking to take the next steps in my coaching career by working with Ole and his team,” said Fletcher. AFP (HN).
