Darren Fletcher has taken up a new role at Manchester United after leaving his coaching job at West Brom.
According to Manchester Evening News, Fletcher is back at his former club in an ‘informal ambassadorial’ capacity where he will not be taking part in any coaching.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer appears keen to bring back as many of his former teammates he can to have around Carrington who have been successful for United in the past.
Fletcher was a player that epitomised the attitude that Solskjaer wants in his squad today as he continues his rebuild.
He was one of the most reliable players for Sir Alex Ferguson in a 12-year stint at Old Trafford that included five Premier League titles, the FA Cup and the Champions League.
Fletcher’s mentality and experience can only be a good thing to have in and around the training ground and he is another role model that the academy youngsters can look up to.
The first thing Solskjaer did when he became United boss is appoint Sir Alex Ferguson’s former assistant Mike Phelan as his number 2.
He also has ex-teammates Quinton Fortune and Neil Wood jointly coaching the United Under-23 development side.
It’s now great to see Fletcher, who was such a good servant for United, back at the club.
