Manchester United assistant coach and Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s right-hand man Mike Phelan has put pen to paper on new terms with the club.
United take off
The first months of the campaign, of course, have proven far from easy at Old Trafford.
Despite the high-profile summer arrivals of all of Raphael Varane, Jadon Sancho and Cristiano Ronaldo, the Red Devils have continued to act as a source of frustration for the club’s loyal fan base.
This comes with explosive displays, during which United finally look like a cohesive unit capable of opening up any opposing baseline, followed far too often by flat, abject and frankly disjointed 90-minute displays.
The club’s defensive record is also becoming a growing concern, with Solskjaer and company, following a 1-1 draw with Everton at the weekend, having failed to keep a clean sheet in any of their last nine league outings. at the Theater of Dreams:

In turn, this unpredictable form has seen Manchester United lose their rhythm at the Premier League summit, be eliminated from the League Cup at the hands of West Ham and shocked to the sword by the Swiss team. Young Boys. in the Champions League.
Solskjaer’s vote of confidence?
With a crop of undoubtedly talented players at his disposal, the pressure has, in turn, begun to fall on the aforementioned Solskjaer’s shoulders once again.
Many of the Reds’ supporters have long decided that the Norwegian is not the right man to lead them into a prosperous new era, amid calls from the likes of Erik ten Hag and Antonio Conte.
However, as described above, the latest actions by Old Trafford’s hierarchy would certainly seem to suggest that they are not planning any major changes anytime soon.
This comes with Mike Phelan, deputy manager at Solskjaer, who got a new contract today.
The deal, widely publicized in the media Monday night, is expected to see Phelan remain in his role until the summer of 2024.
Meanwhile, many have been quick to suggest that United’s decision to reiterate its faith in the club’s second-in-command should also be seen as a clear show of support for Solskjaer, despite growing calls from his boss in recent times. .
This comes with Phelan’s terms that now align perfectly with those of the former Red Devils hitman:
EXCLUSIVE: Assistant manager Mike Phelan has signed a contract extension at Manchester United, in what could be seen as the club’s latest show of support for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer. Understand that the contract expires in 2024, just like the manager. Plus @MailSport shortly.
