Man United coach ‘to make history’ as he 'closes in on new role'

Man United coach ‘to make history’ as he 'closes in on new role'

A Manchester United coach has been linked with a new role.

Manchester United coach Eric Ramsay could make history as he is reportedly closing in on a new role.

Back in 2021, Ramsay joined United as a player development and set piece coach when former Red Devils star Ole Gunnar Solskjaer was the manager.

Since Solskjaer was replaced by Dutchman Erik ten Hag, Ramsay has taken on more responsibility within the team.

At one stage, Ramsay was also working as an assistant coach for the Wales national team.

Now, at the age of 31, he has been linked with being the new manager of Major League Soccer side Minnesota United.

According to transfer specialist Fabrizio Romano, Ramsay will become the MLS’s youngest-ever head coach.

He wrote on social media: “EXCL: MLS side Minnesota United have approached Manchester United staff coach Eric Ramsay to be their new head coach.

“He’s their top target as new manager as talks are ongoing, and progressing well. Ramsay (31) would be the youngest head coach in MLS history.”

The club lost their interim head coach Sean McAuley to Indy Eleven in January and are reportedly eager to have a new manager in place before their MLS season opener against Austin FC.


Prior to becoming a coach, Ramsay was the captain of Wales’ futsal team in UEFA Euro 2014 qualifying.

Current Wales boss Rob Page was full of praise for his fellow countryman when Ramsay was appointed a coach in the Welsh set-up.

He said, as per talkSPORT: “Eric is arguably one of the best young coaches in football at this moment in time.”

Ramsay left the Wales national team in September 2023 in order to focus solely on his role with the Old Trafford club.

After a tough start to the season, United have improved their form in recent weeks as they recorded four straight ways in the Premier League with victories over Wolverhampton Wanderers, West Ham United, Aston Villa and Luton Town.
