Man Utd sign analyst Ewan Sharp as assistant coach after Scot worked with Ralf Rangnick at New York and Moscow together12/22/2021
RALF RANGNICK has brought a trusted advisor into the mix at Manchester United after signing analyst Ewan Sharp.
The Scot had been working alongside Rangnick at Lokomotiv Moscow and moves to Old Trafford as an assistant to the German.
Sharp has long been part of his new boss's inner circle, previously working with MLS side New York Red Bulls.
Rangnick was formerly Red Bull’s head of sport and development, overseeing the energy drinks giant’s footballing initiatives.
Now in charge at Old Trafford on an interim basis, the 63-year-old has set about overhauling the Red Devils’ backroom staff.
He has already brought in ex-NY Red Bulls and Toronto boss Chris Armas as an assistant after the departure of Michael Carrick.
And he has added former RB Leipzig sports psychologist Sascha Lense to his team.
Sharp cut his teeth in North America having playing college football before working as a video analyst at several US universities.
