Manchester United have announced the appointment of Ewan Sharp as assistant coach and analyst.
Rangnick first met Sharp at the New York Red Bulls where he worked as a performance analyst – a move that boosts United’s backroom team following the departures of Michael Carrick and Kieran McKenna.
Sharp’s last job was at Lokomotiv Moscow, along with Rangnick, and she previously worked with New York Red Bulls and Toronto FC, while also spending a two-year stint as Director of Performance Analysis at Northwestern University in the United States.
Toronto Sun He once described how Sharp played an important role in “opponent reconnaissance, match planning, match and post-match analysis. The reconnaissance department also aided in identification and recruitment.”

Sharp was a member of Chris Armas’ coaching staff for Toronto FC’s MLS side for six months earlier this year before the coach was fired in July after just two wins in 15 games.
American Rangnick appointed Armas as his assistant earlier this month, following Carrick’s departure after a three-game stint in the caretaker.
First-team coach McKenna left his position last week to become manager of Premier League Ipswich Town.
Rangnick confirmed that Mike Phelan remained part of United’s coaching squad despite Armas’ appointment.

First team training resumed in Carrington, Tuesday, with an intermittent return of players, after the matches Brentford and Brighton & Hove Albion were postponed.
