Manchester United continued their stunning run of form over the weekend, as Erik ten Hag’s men grabbed all three points away from home after a hard-fought 2-1 win at Luton Town.

The Red Devils have now won four Premier League games on the bounce and remain unbeaten in all competitions this calendar year. The club is also making smart and ruthless moves to reshape its football structure.

However, just when things are looking up, Ten Hag could find his backroom staff lighter imminently.

Manchester United expected to lose Eric Ramsay

MLS outfit Minnesota United are edging closer to appointing Manchester United assistant coach Eric Ramsay as their new manager, The Athletic have reported. It’s thought that all parties are working on wrapping up the deal swiftly.

Minnesota United are looking for a new manager to succeed Adrian Heath, who left the club at the end of last season after being at the helm for seven years. At 32 years old, Ramsay will be the youngest head coach in MLS this season.

The Welshman is one of the most highly-rated young coaches in the game. He was approached by Blackpool a year ago and also attracted interest from Swansea City late in 2023.

Ramsay moved to Carrington as a player development and set-piece coach under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer in 2021.
