Manchester United is delighted to announce the appointment of Richard Hartis as Senior Goalkeeping Coach.

Hartis arrives with great experience and knowledge of the club having spent over ten years as Head of Academy Goalkeeping at Manchester United from 2000-2010. During the 2007/08 season Hartis worked with the first team as the club secured the historic double of the Premier League and Champions League. 

The goalkeeping coach’s return sees him reunited with Ole Gunnar Solskjaer who he previously worked with at Manchester United, Molde and Cardiff City. Most recently Hartis worked at The FA, as national goalkeeping coach for the professional development phase, where he was a member of the 2017 FIFA U20 World Cup-winning team.
Richard Hartis said: 

“I am delighted to have the opportunity to return to Manchester United; a club that I know very well. I have a great relationship with Ole and I fully understand his philosophy; the chance to work with him again is really exciting. David, Sergio, Lee and Dean are an excellent group of goalkeepers and I am also looking forward to working with Emilio and the rest of the goalkeeping coaches to develop the immense talent at the club.” 
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer said:

"Richard is a fantastic goalkeeping coach and has a proven track record of developing goalkeepers for winning teams. The depth in goalkeeping talent at Manchester United is exceptional and I know that Richard can help to take them to the next level. Richard’s coaching abilities will really complement our current coaches and everyone is looking forward to working with him.”
