Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has confirmed the latest addition to his coaching staff on Monday, with Eric Ramsay joining to work one-on-one with players, as well as ‘take ownership’ of United’s set-plays.

Ramsay spent two years as assistant coach with Chelsea’s under-23s before taking up the Manchester United job for the upcoming campaign.

Solskjaer told United’s official website how delighted he was to have recruited the tactician: “We’ve been fortunate enough to convince Eric Ramsay to come and join the best club in the world and in the country.

“He’s a very highly rated coach who is going to be working with individuals and in charge of set-plays as well.

“We’re excited. He’s young, fresh and with new ideas, an innovative coach we know from before. Kieran [McKenna] knows him really well from Loughborough, so we’re very pleased with that.”
