Premier League giants, Manchester United seems to have dealt a major blow to their fans with them deciding to stick with the current coaching staff despite the calls for them to be sacked following a poor start to the season which leaves the club with only one win in their last five games.
As confirmed by the club, Assistant Manager, Mike Phelan has extended his stay at the Theatre of Dreams until at least 2024 and hence, ending any hopes of the United coaching staff getting the boot anytime soon amid the ongoing struggles.
"Manchester United assistant manager Mike Phelan has extended his contract with the club. The former Reds midfielder has agreed a fresh deal until June 2024 after returning to the club when Ole Gunnar Solskjaer was initially appointed caretaker manager in December 2018," reads part of the official statement from the Red Devils.
Moreover according to multiple British reports, the United top brass are fully behind Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and his coaching staff and are backing them to succeed at the club especially after the excellent summer transfer window.
Meanwhile, the Red Devils are set to face some of most challenging fixtures after the international break and whether they would be able to pick up form after the latest struggles remains to be seen.
