Manchester United transfer news RECAP Man Utd ‘working on two deals’ after Mike Phelan announcement – Manchester Evening News

Manchester United assistant manager Mike Phelan has signed a new contract with the club.

Phelan, who returned to Old Trafford with Ole Gunnar Solskjaer in 2018 following an earlier stint at United as Sir Alex Ferguson’s No.2, has extended his deal to 2024.

In a statement on the official website, the club said: “Manchester United assistant manager Mike Phelan has extended his contract with the club.

“The former Reds midfielder has agreed a fresh deal until June 2024 after returning to the club when Ole Gunnar Solskjaer was initially appointed caretaker manager in December 2018.

“He was moved to his current role in the following May, after previously being first-team coach.

“The 59-year-old has a wealth of experience and was, of course, a much-valued member of Sir Alex Ferguson’s coaching team.

“As a player, he made 146 appearances for United after signing from Norwich City in 1989, before joining West Brom in 1994. He was at the heart of Sir Alex’s first trophy-winning team, with honours including the 1990 FA Cup, 1991 European Cup Winners’ Cup and 1993 Premier League title.”
