Mike Phelan has been tied down to the assistant manager post at Manchester United for a few years as he is set to serve as the No.2 to Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.

After defeating Paris St. Germain in the round of 16 of Champions League, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer was appointed the manager of Manchester United on a long-term basis.

After Jose Mourinho was sacked in December, Phelan was brought on-board to support Ole in managing the club’s overhaul.

Mike Phelan’s contract was due to run out after a Premier League encounter with Cardiff on 12th May but the Red Devils were quick in tying down the 56-year old to a three-year contract at Old Trafford.

Phelan was happy to sign the contract and said that working at Old Trafford is a boon and the backroom staff is already working towards the next season.

“I am thrilled to be back as assistant manager,” Phelan said.

He continued “Manchester United has been a huge part of my life since I joined as a player in 1989 and I am delighted to be able to continue that relationship in this key role.

“Since returning in December, I have enjoyed working with Ole, Michael (Carrick), Kieran (McKenna), Mark (Dempsey) and Emilio (Alvarez) and we are all focused on preparing for the new season,” Mike Phelan concluded.
