Mike Phelan signs contract extension at Manchester United

Mike Phelan has extended his contract with Manchester United as assistant manager to Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.

The former Manchester United midfielder, who made 146 appearances for the club, has agreed a new deal until June 2024, as per ManUtd.com.

Phelan has a wealth of experience and was, of course, a member of Sir Alex Ferguson’s coaching team.

He was also part of Ferguson’s first trophy-winning side, achieving honours such as the 1990 FA Cup, 1991 European Cup Winners’ Cup and the Premier League in 1993.

The coaching team as a whole will be busy during the international break in attempt to fix the problems seen on the pitch over the past month.

Up next is Leicester City in the Premier League on Saturday 16 October.

The Reds must perform better in matches against lesser opposition if they are to mount a title challenge this season, and I would hope Solskjaer and Phelan believe they have players good enough to make objective a reality.
