Manchester United have confirmed Mike Phelan has put pen to paper on a three-year deal to stay on as assistant manager.
Phelan, who served as Sir Alex Ferguson’s number two at United before departing shortly after the Scot in 2013, returned to the club alongside Ole Gunnar Solskjaer in December last year.

The pair came in on a deal until the end of the season, but Solskjaer was named the permanent successor to Jose Mourinho in March, and now Phelan has followed the Norwegian in committing to the club where he made more than 100 appearances between 1989 and 1994. “I am thrilled to be back as assistant manager,” Phelan said.
