Manchester United are close to signing an agreement for Ewan Sharp to become assistant manager and analyst.
Sky Sports News it has been said that the former Toronto FC manager will come from Lokomotiv Moscow, where interim manager Ralf Rangnick was working prior to his arrival at Old Trafford.
Rangnick first met Sharp at the New York Red Bulls, where he worked as a performance analyst – and the move strengthens United’s behind-the-scenes squad following the departures of Michael Carrick and Kieran McKenna.
The Toronto sun he once described how Sharp played an important role in “opposition scouting, match planning, match analysis and post-match. He also assisted the scouting department in identifying and recruiting.”
Sharp served as a member of Chris Armas’ coaching staff at Toronto FC for a six-month stint earlier this year before his manager was fired in July after only two wins in 15 games.
Rangnick named American Armas as his assistant earlier this month, following Michael Carrick’s departure following his three-game stint as keeper.
Manchester United first team manager Kieran McKenna left his post last week to become manager of League One Ipswich Town.
Rangnick confirmed Mike Phelan remained a part of United’s lineup despite Armas’ appointment.
Manchester United are back on the pitch against Newcastle on 27 December, live Sky Sports, after the last two games were postponed due to a Covid-19 outbreak in the club.
