The Under 23's Thread

Recommended Posts

Manchester United has completed a restructure of the Under-23s coaching set-up. 

The club announced the appointment of Neil Wood as lead coach of the Under-23s; he will be assisted by Quinton Fortune. The restructure also sees Head of Academy Nicky Butt undertake increased involvement in the team’s overall programme.

Neil, a former Manchester United youth-team player, returned to the club as a coach in 2014, following a playing career in the English Football League. He has coached across Under-16s, Under-18s and Under-23s during his time at the club.

Quinton, who featured 126 times for United, won the Premier League alongside Butt in 2002/03 and recently completed his UEFA A Licence.

Nicky Butt said: “The Academy is completely focused on producing well-rounded players for our first team and we believe that this new structure provides the perfect platform to achieve this aim.

”Myself, Neil and Quinton have long-standing connections with Manchester United and bring a wealth of knowledge and experience to our roles that we will pass on to the young players. It is such an exciting time for the Academy with Ole as first-team manager, who truly believes in the development of homegrown talent. It was a great source of pride that three Academy graduates made their first-team debuts last season. As a group, we will now look to build on this success.”

After a very disappointing season under Sbragia with what was a promising start this season is filled with new enthusiasm under the new management structure.

I've decided rather than put my spin on the reports this season I will be as lazy as @JJtheRed (he knows what I'm talking about) and just copy & paste links from the United website!!

Great start to the season as we pummeled West Brom!

Come on THE YOUTH!!!! 😁
