Manchester United coach Eric Ramsay joins Wales national team

We knew for some time that Manchester United coach Eric Ramsay was highly thought of at the club. He has now joined the Wales backroom staff ahead of their Euro 2024 qualifying campaign.

Ramsay, 31, will join as an assistant coach for the Welsh national team while also remaining in his role as first-team coach for Manchester United.

Wales manager Robert Page made the announcement on Thursday.

Speaking about the appointments of Ramsay and Nick Davies, Page said (via Manchester Evening News): “Nick and Eric will be two great additions to our staff. Nick has a wealth of experience having been involved in top clubs and Eric is arguably one of the best young coaches in football at this moment in time.

“The changes give us an opportunity to build on our success, by drip feeding new players into the squad at the right times. Hopefully in the next 12 months we’ll then have the next batch of players to represent Wales at the top level.”

This means Ramsay can gain even more experience for a young coach, and it feels like he is building quite a CV before taking a first team job of his own somewhere.

Michael Carrick has done that to great success this season at Middlesborough.
