Manchester United have confirmed the appointment of Mike Phelan as assistant manager on a three-year contract.
The Club hierarchy have been in discussions with Phelan since Ole Gunnar Solskjaer was appointed as a full-time manager.
Phelan is a highly respected figure at Carrington and has been a great support for the Norwegian.
Former United midfielder Phelan served as Sir Alex Ferguson's assistant between 2008 and 2013 and said he is 'delighted' to have resumed the role on a full-time basis.
Phelan said: "I am thrilled to be back as assistant manager. Manchester United has been a huge part of my life since I joined as a player in 1989 and I am delighted to be able to continue that relationship in this key role.
"Since returning in December, I have enjoyed working with Ole, Michael [Carrick], Kieran [McKenna], Mark [Dempsey] and Emilio [Alvarez] and we are all focused on preparing for next season."
