Manchester United boss Erik ten Hag has dropped Mike Phelan from the coaching staff, according to The Athletic.

The 59-year-old has had numerous spells in various capacities at Old Trafford, most recently re-joining as Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s assistant in 2019.

The arrival of Mitchell van der Gaag and Steve McClaren as Erik ten Hag’s assistants means there will be a new-look coaching staff from next season.

Mike Phelan assisted Sir Alex Ferguson between 2008 and 2013, before being ousted following David Moyes’ appointment.

Phelan signed a new contract as assistant manager last summer so an exit will have to be negotiated.

He could stay at the club in a non-coaching role but that is yet to be decided.
