Man Utd: Solskjaer delighted to kick off 2021 with win
Former Manchester United midfielder Darren Fletcher has joined Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s first-team coaching staff after a brief stint with the Under-16s set up. Solskjaer has revealed his delight at having a former team-mate in his ranks, and Sir Alex Ferguson has also seemingly given his verdict.
Legendary Manchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson has seemingly already given his verdict on Darren Fletcher’s next move at the club.
Former midfielder Fletcher has joined Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s first-team coaching staff.
The Scot has been part of the Under-16s set up since October, but will now work exclusively with Solskjaer’s squad.
Fletcher was part of the United team that won multiple titles under Ferguson, and spent 12 years with the club after coming through the academy, eventually moving on in 2015.

And the 36-year-old appears to have the blessing of his former boss as he moves into a more senior position at the club.
Ferguson commended Champions League holders Bayern Munich’s use of former players in positions of power, insisting they are the people who should be running the club.
“Bayern is a club run in the proper foundation of it,” Sir Alex told MUTV.

“Former players run it really, Uli Hoeness (former chairman now board member) and Karl-Heinz Rummenigge (chairman).
“They run the club in the right way and they are always winning the league in Germany.”
After moving roles, Fletcher said: “I am delighted to be returning to the club as a first -team coach.
“It’s a very exciting time for this young team and I am looking forward to taking the next steps in my coaching career by working with Ole and his staff.”
Fletcher’s former team-mate Solskjaer was delighted to welcome him to his growing list of staff.
“Darren has the United DNA running through his veins and he knows exactly what it takes to be a Manchester United player,” said the Norwegian.
“He is at the start of his coaching career and his experience both on and off the pitch along with his winning mentality, commitment and hard work will be a great addition to the staff.”
