Manchester United Set To Appoint New Coach As Ralf Ragnick Is Sent Clear Message
Manchester United are close to finalising a deal for Ewan Sharp to become an assistant coach and analyst.
The former Toronto FC coach is set to arrive from Lokomotiv Moscow, where interim head coach Ralf Rangnick was working before his arrival at Old Trafford.
Rangnick first encountered Sharp at New York Red Bulls where he worked as a performance analyst – and the move bolsters United’s backroom team following the departures of Michael Carrick and Kieran McKenna.
Rangnick appointed American Armas as his assistant earlier this month, following the departure of Michael Carrick after his three-match spell in caretaker charge
Rangnick confirmed Mike Phelan remained part of the coaching set-up at United despite the appointment of Armas.
Manchester United return to action against Newcastle on December 27, after their last two games were postponed due to a Covid-19 outbreak at the club.
