Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has revealed that Eric Ramsay has joined the first-team coaching set-up.

The former Chelsea coach will work one-on-one with individual players and also take ownership over training on the side's set-plays.
“We've been fortunate enough to convince Eric Ramsay to come and join the best club in the world and in the country,” Ole told club media at Carrington on Monday. “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.
Ramsay began his career at Shrewsbury Town in 2017, as head of coaching for the Shrews' youth programme.
He was then promoted to Academy Manager, before going on to work with their senior team as assistant coach.
In the summer of 2019, he then joined Chelsea to work with the Blues' Under-23s squad.
