Manchester United have added Eric Ramsay to their coaching staff with Ole Gunnar Solskjaer keen to freshen up his backroom team ahead of the new season.

The former Chelsea youth coach will handle set-pieces and work one-to-one with individual players.

‘We’ve been fortunate enough to convince Eric Ramsay to come and join,’ said United boss Solskjaer.

‘We’re excited, he’s young, fresh and with new ideas, an innovative coach we know from before.’

Ramsay joined Shrewsbury as head of youth in 2017 before becoming academy manager and then eventually a senior assistant coach.

He then joined Chelsea in 2019 to work with the Blues’ Under-23s.

Ramsey will work closely with the likes of Luke Shaw, whose dead ball prowess as improved dramatically over the course of the last 12 months.

The United left-back demonstrated his set-piece prowess with England over the course of Euro 2020, providing the assist for Harry Maguire’s goal against Ukraine during the quarter-final in Rome.

Shaw capped an impressive month with a goal in the final against Italy, and was unlucky not to be named in UEFA’s team of the tournament.

Despite Sunday’s Wembley showpiece ending in agonising circumstances, Solskjaer has been thrilled at the way in which the 26-year-old has turned his career around.

‘I’m so happy for Luke. I was watching it and ‘what’s just happened?” Solskjaer said in reference to Shaw’s goal which arrived inside two minutes. ‘He started the attack and we’ve encouraged him to get into the last third.

‘We know how technically gifted he is and skilful he is and he hit the ball very, very sweetly. He keeps his eye on the ball, straight laces and it’s margins again – off the post and in, not off the post and out.

‘That’s football for you. Luke deserves all the luck he can get. He’s had a tremendous couple of years with us.’
