Manchester United confirm appointment of Ewan Sharp

Manchester United have confirmed the appointment of Ewan Sharp to Ralf Rangnick’s coaching staff.

The Scotsman has taken up a role as a coach and analyst at Old Trafford as the German continues the reshaping of his backroom team.

United recently lost Kieran McKenna and Martyn Pert to Ipswich Town and of course Michael Carrick departed shortly Ole Gunnar Solskjaer was sacked.

Sharp has become Rangnick’s third coaching appointment after Chris Arnas and Sascha Lense and has been pictured for the first time in United training gear on the club’s Twitter account.


He has worked with New York Red Bulls and Toronto FC, while also having a two-year stint as director of performance analysis at Northwestern University in the United States.

Sharp has worked with Armas before at Toronto FC and his most recent role was at Lokomotiv Moscow, the club Rangnick left United to join.

It appears that Rangnick is taking his coaching approach in a new direction centred around more video work and we will wait to see how it helps transform United’s fortunes on the pitch.
