Solskjaer confirms his coaching team

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has confirmed his coaching staff in preparation for next season.

According to him, Michael Carrick, Kieran McKenna and Mark Dempsey will be staying on as part of his coaching team at Manchester United next season.

“They are all going to stay. I think that’s important, that we keep that team going forward,” Solskjaer said.

“We do bounce off each other and they are some excellent coaches. Kieran, with his 32 years of age, you’d think he’s had 32 years in coaching.”

Retiring as a player, Carrick joined former manager Jose Mourinho’s coaching staff last summer, while the Portuguese promoted McKenna from the U18s when assistant Rui Faria left Manchester United at the end of last season.

Dempsey joined Solskjaer at Molde and Cardiff then returned to the club shortly after United hired Solskjaer.

” I’ve worked with him (Demps) now since 2011 when I moved back to Norway, he came with me to Molde. He’s a Manchester United lad through and through. He came through with Norman Whiteside and Mark Hughes in that youth team. I think he was captain and he played once for the first team. He – what can I say that no one else knows about Michael? When he came in, it was my last season as a player so I played with him for one year. He’s a personality I can really connect with,” Solskjaer added.

Solskjaer was appointed on a permanent basis in March, while it was confirmed last week that Mike Phelan would also remain as assistant manager after signing a three-year deal.
