ERIC Ramsay has continued his meteoric rise in football by joining the Manchester United coaching set-up.

The former Llanfyllin High School pupils lands at Old Trafford from English Premier League rivals Chelsea.

Previously Ramsay was part of the coaching set-ups at Swansea City and Shrewsbury Town.

Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer confirmed Ramsay would be work one-on-one with individual players and also take ownership over training on the side's set-plays.

“We've been fortunate enough to convince Eric Ramsay to come and join the best club in the world and in the country,” said Solskjaer. “He’s a very highly rated coach who is going to be working with individuals and in charge of set-plays as well.

“We’re excited. He’s young, fresh and with new ideas, an innovative coach we know from before. Kieran McKenna knows him really well from Loughborough, so we’re very pleased with that.”

Ramsay began his career at Shrewsbury Town in 2017, as head of coaching for the Shrews' youth programme.

He was then promoted to academy manager, before going on to work with their senior team as assistant coach.

In the summer of 2019, he then joined Chelsea to work with the Blues' Under-23s squad.
