Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has confirmed his Manchester United coaching staff for next season, with Michael Carrick, Kieran McKenna and Mark Dempsey all remaining at the club.
Carrick joined Jose Mourinho's coaching staff following his retirement last summer, while McKenna was promoted in the wake of Rui Faria's departure. Dempsey, who was a member of the United Academy, worked with Solskjaer at Molde and Cardiff and returned to Old Trafford shortly after the Norwegian was named interim manager in December.
All three will remain part of the coaching staff for the 2019-20 season.
"They are all going to stay. I think that's important, that we keep that team going forward," Solskjaer told the Manchester United app. "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.
"Demps - I've worked with him 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 knows what this means.
"Michael - 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."
Confirmation of the coaching staff comes on the back of the news that Mike Phelan has agreed a three-year deal to become United assistant manager and Solskjaer is delighted to have the team around him.
"We are a team. We bounce things off each other and have each got different qualities, so I'm so happy to have this team around me," Solskjaer added.
"With the experience of Mike, he's been here with the gaffer when he was here and been a player. Michael has been a player and had some fantastic managers in Jose, David Moyes, Louis van Gaal and Sir Alex. I'm so fortunate to work together so we can all learn from each other."
