Darren Fletcher has joined Manchester United's first-team coaching set-up after impressing during a spell with the Under-16s.
Fletcher has been training the youngsters since October but will now work alongside Red Devils boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer at Carrington.
He will coach alongside Mike Phelan, Michael Carrick and Kieran McKenna.
Solskjaer said on the club's website: "Darren has the United DNA running through his veins and he knows exactly what it takes to be a Manchester United player.
"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."
Former Scotland captain Fletcher came through the youth ranks at Man United before making over 340 first-team appearances and helping the club win a host of honours, including five Premier League titles, the FA Cup and Champions League.

He joins the first-team coaching staff at a good time, with Solskjaer's Red Devils firing on all cylinders, having not dropped points in the Premier League since November 1.
Last time out Manchester United beat Aston Villa 2-1, and former captain Roy Keane believes the Red Devils are in with a chance of winning the title this season.
"If they keep winning football matches [they can win the title]," said Keane on Sky Sports. "We were really critical of them at the start of the season – well I was, and rightly so, because their home form was so bad.
"It was shocking, some of their performances and results, but away from home they were fantastic. We just said, because it's such a bizarre season, if they get their home form they were never that far adrift.
"And even their last few victories, a bit of luck against Villa the other night with the penalty, injury time winner against Wolves, brilliant against Leeds. United will obviously be getting confidence and belief that they can certainly challenge Liverpool."
